So far good news. Turns out the ignition on the MFi is stand alone so there shouldn't be the need to find a carb dizzy setup. Might just be a case of new manifold and carb. There is the standard production 2.8 carb manifold which will take a Webber but these are apparently hard to obtain.

Hmmm turns out the Offenhauser manifold came in two versions, USA and European spec. And guess which is increadably rare to find... :roll:

Good good. Glad to hear your getting somewhere then.

Reckon you should ditch the lude and get a nice practical 'Tina as a daily driver though. 4 seats, cavernous boot, plenty of retro street cred, all for the same sort of money as the Lude's worth! Oh, did I mention nice cheap insurance too.... :mrgreen:

Absolute doddle to mod/repair as well. And if you get the right one, free tax as well!

Gotta be worth a look into, surley???
