where to get EA82 weber adapter?

Also, is there anything besides the carb itself that you have to order? Jets? Linkage? Fuel pressure regulator?

The link is to the complete carb kit I have for my EA-82 engine. Has a 2-piece adapter for the manifold. Carbs is supposedly jetted correctly for these engines. Mine is running good now, just as it came out of the box.
A few notes on the kit;
The flat-head screws for mounting the lower plate to manifold are to long, unless you use the black plastic spacer that's under the Hatachi carb.
I found that the spacers themselves, don't quite fit the opening in manifold, and vice-versa. I did a little hand machining on everything, using a rotory file, and a flat file, to blend everything smooth. Even trimmed the gaskets to fit the spacers better.
The studs for mounting carb to adapters are to long also. They will work on the rear 2 holes, but would be a real pain to use on the front 2 holes, recommend using shorter bolts here.
They send you the tall filter, approx., 2-1/2" high, may cause hood clearance issues. Short filter is 1-1/2" high.
You may/may not, need a fuel pressure regulator. I did.
http://homepage.powe...ber_dgav_32.htm Good info on a Weber install, with guide to re-jetting if you deem that nessacary.
Take your time installing the carb. Double check that you have everything hooked up, and un-used vacuum ports blocked off. Then go out and enjoy it...........

Also, on the air filter issue, I used a tall filter with my weber with no problems, but that was on an EA81.
I suppose I could drag my EA82 manifold to my Datsun buddy's house and test-fit one of his carbs...

I just ordered the complete weber conversion kit from Redline that Tom pointed me to, and the extra shipping charge to Alaska is $37!!!! I sure hope this is worth it.
