Is the JIS properly secured ??

I can see that it’s a high quality piece ... but can’t make out the attachment arrangement ...

This is a radical looking setup for sure. action1

The question that comes to mind is....
dual carbs running into a single manifold - thru the blower - into another single manifold,
then back into two cylinders looks like it will take the ability to tune each carb individually for each
cylinder out of play.

might be able to get away with a single carb for each side and simplify things quite a bit.

A very interesting project.

Those are two barrel carbs sitting on each blower. Each barrel isn't routed to a single cylinder even when a blower isn't between them. At least that's my understanding.

Thanks for the feedback, always appreciated. anim-cheers1
The plan for now is seperate plumbing from each barrel into the charger, then seperate into the head.
Keeping it as equal as possible.
Not going for the most performance, which will probably drive some of the tuners that see in person nuts.
Keeping it just a fun build crossy.gif

Good for you Wog! That was my original thought doing dual superchargers, but struck out on getting inexpensive smallish chargers.

Way to keep it going!
