MG TD TF 1500 - Carbs

I have a TD2 factory replacement engine fitted to my car. My question to you fellow enthusiasts is; what carbs. would have been fitted as original equipment to suite this engine please? Thanks Peter.

Except for the fact that your car appears to be upside down, the carbs look correct - 1-1/4" SU carbs (assuming you don't have a Mark II car). You would have an aluminum (or aluminium) breather snorkel and a round oil-bath air filter, but they somewhat limit the airflow. Your ram tubes do not filter anything at all except large rocks and birds, so I suspect your engine will wear out in 45,000 miles rather than the expected 60,000.
