Weslake (Kugelfischer?) IR injection trumpets 70's Ford RS

Postby Caprimaniac » Sun Oct 21, 2012 4:04 am

One of my old friends bought a set of trumpets w/ throttle plates (IR throttlebodies) for his 2.6V6 Kugelfischer injected Ford Capri RS.

Our guess is that Weslake made these trumpets. They were available as a Ford RS part back in the day.

There are 6 trumpets with individual throttle plates and they need to be replaced. My pal have looked at Weber throttle plates but got confused by the different angles available on the plates.

The bore is 40mm, so plates from 40mm Weber might fit. (Jeez- I don't know if he's checked the bolt pattern on blade to shaft bolts!....)

As there are air bypass holes in some of, but not all(!?), trumpets, the blade need to cover those, at least.

Anyway. Anyone on ST have any knowledge on which blades should (could) be used in these trumpets?

Regards
RS

I'm sure some one like BLP could make them for you if you can't find replacement ones on the shelf somewhere.

I'm sure the guys over at Hilborn could take care of that. Give them a ring.
