Kevin,

Sorry to say I don’t have the carburettors, but I do have a set of dimensional drawings for a 40 IDA triple set.

I obtained these from Weber (six A3 sheets) in 1988 to help Tony Amato who wanted to fabricate a manifold for his 4th Series B20. Looking at the letter from Weber it seems he was interested in both 40 and 46 mm sets! Presumably you are on the same track. Sadly, Tony Amato’s project was never completed and the bits (no carbs) went to Italy with the rolling shell and all the other parts. Hopefully now restored.

Might the drawings be useful to you?

Colin

PS. This reminds me that I never did pick up on the reference to Tony Amato in an earlier thread – see new post under ‘Aurelias at Bonhams…’

Kevin,
There is a B20 in Italy - I believe it is the Liege-Rome-Liege car - which used to be owned by Nigel Trow once I believe.....and this has 3 twinchoke Solex's which are mounted at a slight angle. Sounds lovely.
I have also seen a triple Weber 40 setup recently somewhere - maybe from the USA - which I seem to recall had just been originated.

I have 2 x Weber 40 on 2 of our B20's - they look nice and must breathe better at the top end but as to 3 carbs I am not sure what value this might bring apart from the very topend. And one is somewhat restricted for revs because of the design of the engine anyway.
Cavalitto in Turin sell complete manifold kits without carbs for 2 carbs for all series of B20 I believe - they were on display when I last went there.
