Winter boredom and a lucky find has me thinking of adapting the PHM 40's I now have to my Lemans III. Yes I now, the PHF 36 work perfectly fine but the Lafranconi Competizione and the B10 cam, need company. I have a couple of questions (and they are not about jetting...):
1) To use the carbs with flat tops, I believe I will be requiring a new set of throttle cables, does anyone know what would work or would I need to have the cables custom made? As an alternative, does anyone have a set of bell tops they are willing to part with?
2) Fitting the carb to the head: Does any one know what kind of rubber mount I would need? does the one for the Lemans IV have the same diameter on the head side of the rubber mount as the square fin 850?
3) The mismatched (different production dates) PHM 40ND/NS carbs I have both came with 60/5 slides, the strange thing is that of these two slides, one has a hole drilled on the air filter side, low close to it's lower edge?!? This definitively would change the air flow most significantly at idle. Has anyone seen this before, or is this the result of a tuner with an extra drill bit..and I need a new slide?
