try these folks:
K trip i would just bolt them up and find out if they work. Than going thru them. You might just fuck it up.
If it works great. If not Hope you didnt spend alot of money on them
they look pretty clean to me
of coarse you have a truck and the linkage is set up for the stock 510 arm type
A set of SUs I've wanted a while now. I almost had two different
Sets and both didn't happen. Its all good though thats life but
I still would love a set.
You should pm me if you really want to sell them. If not thats
Cool too lol
so you just went to their website and did not talk to anyone?
those are z car carbs bigger then the 4 cyl carbs they also look to be on the k14 smog manifold probably gonna be to much for a stock l series 4 banger

Definitely 4 bolt carbs on a two bolt manifold. Measure the throttle opening. The L4 SUs were 38mm and Z cars and Roadster SUs were 46mm.
Might want to check the throttle shafts for wear, looks like the mixture screw on the front carb is lower than the back one.
Could indicate a vacuum leak....or just balanced incorrectly.
Also confirm there is a smooth transition between the 46mm SUs and the 38 IM
Pull the domes/dashpots off and wipe clean...re-install and fill dashpot with 3ccs of ATF.
Raise both dashpots with your fingers and release them at the same time....they should drop at the same speed.
If not....swap domes and try again
My setup....46s on the K14
Yes what he says.The 38 mm SU will work better on L-16 or L-18 motors
I didnt notice they were 46mm carbs.
datto510(Eric had soem on his l20 wagon and they were a littlebit stinky.
nothing wrong with the stock L16 manifold. I run them with no proplems
however if you have a truck maybe its best to stick with what you have as you ll need a Y pipe to clear the torsion bars or have one made. this cost moeny and youll not really get better perfermance per say.
Just that the l16 manifold is ezer to get at the lower intake /exhaust bolts.
