Bodging an Offenhauser carb manifold for port injection...

First job was to level the carb flange on the manifold. You can buy an angled spacer to sit on the top, but I wanted to get the flange as low as possible, so out with Mr Hacksaw for about an hour !

Trial assembly shows that it might just work... The injectors sit a little more upright than with the original Rover EFI manifolds, so the spray is not straight onto the back of the valve. It is at 45 to the port though, so it shouldn't be too bad.

More Devcon was used to build up some 'shoulders' on the port runners, which were then drilled to take the rubber injector seal.
