Lifted from the 'CUC 20H Fanalone thread:

"Jonathan has stripped and rebuilt the 48 Dellortos using comprehensive overhaul kits, checked the pump filter, overhauled the Filter King fitting new gaskets and spring, fitted a new set of points and she's running better than ever.  Smiley Another case of not knowing which was at fault or maybe it was a mix of all.

He also machine tapered the two faces of the inlet manifold which has lowered the carbs, had the radiator re-cored reducing the height by 20mm and lowered the height of the water manifold and the temperature sender. All of  which has resulted in the bonnet shutting level with the wing tops without fouling the carbs and radiator.  Smiley"

Robin.

Herewith a couple of photos of the carbs (48 Dellorto) on the Fanalone after Jonathan's modifications. The radiator is pulled as far forward as possible by the top rubber mount otherwise the large alternator which is fitted would foul the rad core. We've fitted a metal plate to the core to make absolutely certain that the alternator dosen't ever hole it!

Robin,

where's the cooling fan?

Brian, I think it is on the front of the radiator when I looked at Brooklands.

Yes, that's right Neil, the fan had to go in front of the rad and blow instead of suck!  The size of the alternator leaves no room for a fan.

Fitted one of these bad boys (the lower one) to my 1600 Sport. 19mm stiff FARB. Twice as stiff as the standard 16mm bar.

I know how it will handle as I have one on my HF.....Just waited a long time before asking for another batch to be made.....

Just for interest here's a pic of the manifold with its freshly applied ceramic coating . It's been coated inside and out which should hopefully keep rust at bay for many years. The other advantage is reduced heat within the engine compartment.

Very nice !
The ceramic coating, it's a DIY job or specialist ?

Just returned from 2000 mile round trip and can say this anti-roll bar upgrade is well worth it. No negatives, just positives on the handling front.

That's good to hear Tim, will one fit in the Fulvia cabin? If so I will collect the one I've ordered from Omicron when we visit this weekend..,
My GP4 inlet manifold arrived today, very tasty...
