Installing a WEBER

Run the breathers to a T and into the weber filter. Same with the PCV valve.

The manifold is "cocksided"--the adapter fits straight on the manifold.
Found that 1/2" hole... oh well. Anybody ever have an offset issue with the adapter to the manifold? This one kinda overlaps foreward, and a little cocksided.

Who's adapter did you get? Redline, EMPI, or homemade? Sadly it's normal for the weber's front left to just touch the ignition wire cap on the distributor. They seem to all do that with the Hitachi distributor; rumor has it that doesn't happen with the ND version.
Yeah, I noticed... but the adaptor sits a little too foreward, good half inch.

does the nd one make more power?if not electrical tape on the part of carb that is near ignition works great..
Ghetto. If you really want the hitachi to work, rotate it a bit - have to slot out or relocate the mount tho. Or get a LOT of spacers to lift the Weber up out of the way.
No more power - seals out water better tho. The cap seal is one peice instead of four. That and the Weber fitment are why I use them. But be ghetto if you must - I don't want pics tho.

OK, back again, the kit is from redline, motor is EA81, adaptor sits foreward and I can see half inch of manifold gasket surface, stick my finger in the hole and can feel alot of the rear adaptor surface. Have a few distys laying around.
Normal - grind on the adaptor if you like, but I've ground a few, and not ground others - doesn't seem to matter. If you are really up for a project - get an EA82 intake, and the adaptor for it. They flow better, and the adaptor fits a little better too.
Sorry you bought the kit - I made that same mistake my first time. Such a rip off for what you get.

Is the EA82 manifold direct bolt on?
Yes and no. Check the link in my above post. Has most of the things needed done to install EA-82 manifold onto EA-81 along with a Weber.
