Better weber adaptor

Bow Wow in Lynnwood sells the EMPI adapter for the EA81 (not sure about the EA82). I have some custom adapters that were made by a board member that I'd consider selling. Come by sometime and look at it if you like. ---ed---
Obviously, Redline adaptors look like they're made in Taiwan. Who makes a better 32/36 adaptor? Does Offenhauser still make em? Also, is there any 40mm DCOE setups on EA81/82? Couldn't find anything searching.

It was actually the linkage kit that looked a bit cheesy to me.

I didn't need to use the linkage kit that came with the carb. I took the linkage off of the Hitachi and it fit perfectly on the Weber throttle shaft, as well as lined up with the cable.
Yes, Me Too...
But mine is a kit "K731" spec. for EA82 (Means: two adapter plates to make one) the one for EA81 is named "K730" (Single Adapter) in Redline Weber... (www.webercarburetors.com)
The only issue I Got on that adapter, is that the bolts that came with it, didn`t fit the intake`s diameter... as I explained here:
And how to correct that... (With Pics)
Any else looks and works perfectly for me.

In all, good job with the hoses and stuff. Looks really clean under the hood.

I'm sort of funny about things that don't quite fit perfect.. In all, good job with the hoses and stuff. Looks really clean under the hood.
I am like you with things that don´t fit perfect... But let me explain why I did leave that like this in that situation: It´s all about the size of the openings at the Engine´s Heads and the size of the intake itself.
Due to the fact that the size of the intake and the heads opening is the same, I believe that mill the intake bore does not have any effect or difference in the engine´s Performance -or carburetor´s Performance- that´s why I leave it like that... but is good idea to do things better and let the intake opening match exactly the adapter´s opening.
I´ll like to see pics of your intake mill job done... Do you have any pics?
