L16 SU carbs?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about this setup?  Can it work on a stock L16?  What's it worth?  If so, any advantage over the stock Hitachi?  I know someone trying to get rid of it.

Four bolt Roadster carbs on an L series intake. I think they are 40mm? Should work alright although the L16/18 SSS used a 38mm SU.


Maybe 240z carbs which would be 46mm? and a little large for the L16 but still work.



They will work on a stock L16 but were used on the JDM L16SSS Coupe which had different pistons and cam. If you want the same cam as the L16SSS find an L20B cam.



$150 is a great price. You'll need choke cables and connect up the throttle linkage. They are a lot of work to get running just right but then they run forever and are very reliable.

Rocky?  The pic links don't work for me, but if the dual carb set is the SSS 2 bolt mounting, I have an NOS linkage kit for it!  PM or email me if interested! 


Also, the British sports car Triumph TR6 dual choke cable is a good set up........OEM part # UKC2121..........source online at Moss Motors or Victoria British.
