MG TD TF 1500 - Carb question
|Can you use SU 1.25 HS carbs with existing intake manifold?|
|jwp, isn't that throat what all the basic XPAG motors run? regards, tom|
|Tom I have never seen these carbs. A fellow who is attempting/early planning stages of a TD restoration called and asked the question of me. The car he bought was in pieces and he is now looking at the engine and he can not find any carbs. He also has no intake manifold.|
He races Minis and has a bunch of these carbs. They come off the older Minis.
I was hoping someone out there would recognize them by name. I will drive over today and try and get some pictures.
|Tom, the TDs use an H2, hot an HS2. The HS has a 4 bolt mounting flange with a tube from the float chamber to the jet. The would not bolt onto a TD manifold. Bud|
|Thanks Bud. I will confirm his has 4 bolts.|
|The !.25 Hs2 carb was made in 2 and 4 bolt. The 2 bolt fitted the UK Mini Cooper, 1275 midget and Spitfire. I think the inlet bolt pitch is the same but not sure.|

|Whoops! So much for my Haynes SU manual. Sorry Joe. Bud|
|Just to complete the cycle. They have two attachment points and they will work fine. He saved some bucks|
