How is the metal air cleaner housing attached to the Weber carb? I have seen 4 threaded studs fit to the carb but I have threaded (5MM) holes which I have used socket screws drilled for safety wire. My concern that the screws could loosen and be ingested into the engine.

Thanks

Bob

going to the engine/manifold.

The air cleaner to carb nuts are secured in place by safety lock taps.
I can send a picture if needed.

I would appreciate a photo.

I am piecing this together. The engine did not have the air cleaner.

The studs that are on a spare carb (only 3) have an unthreaded portion at the carb "flange" is there a spacer that goes between the carb body and the air cleaner case?

Thanks

Bob,

Pictured is a mounting set for one side and safety plate ( need four sides and two safety plates ). I have extra mounting hardware if needed including the 1600 GT air cleaner.

Pete

I am interested. Is the rubber bush with spacer inside set against the air cleaner housing followed by the washer then the lock plate and finally the nut.

This is for a MK2 around 1968.

Let me know the cost and preferred method of payment.

Thanks Bob

Order of ass'y:

1/8" rubber gasket fits on top of the carb first ( pictured ).

Air cleaner housing fits next

Install spacers. rubber grommets. washers. safety plates. nuts.

Do you need the carb / air cleaner gasket ?

I cut a gasket from regular fiber gasket material. If you have a very good used or NOS gasket I would be interested.

Let me know costs and payment details. thank you.
