MG Midget and Sprite Technical - HS2 Carburetters
Please can anyone advise on the change point by engine or Gan number when the twin carb set changed from AUD 136 to AUD 327 on the Gan 4 MK3 midgets?
|UK cars, from 12CE-DA-H3021 to 3300 and 3401 onwards (May '68).|
See page 117 of Original Sprite & Midget The Restorer’s Guide by Terry Horler –
My car is a mid Jan 68 built Gan 4 Midget with a
12CE-DA-H/3** engine, fitted with AUD 136 twin carbs which appears to be the correct spec for the car according to the information in the Terry Horler book.
|The info was a bit here and there with a bit of crossing over and allowing for North American cars.
It also has page 100 -
. "The first generation of 1275cc engines carried the prefix 12CC, but this was replaced by the 12CE intermittently from HAN9-71937 and GAN4-60326 to HAN9-72670 and GAN4-61026 (December 1967), from which point all engines were of the 12CE type except for those for North America.
. "The 12CE and 12CD engines were painted in a lighter shade of green with a hammer finish."
and page 117 -
. 12CE-DA-874 (Feb 68) Water pump revised in parallel with 12CD 1745
