Does anyone happen to have a spare two speeder intake manifold for sale? Don’t mind if it is tatty. I am working on a twin carb conversion could use one to make a twin intake manifold.
Do not want to use my own as I would like to be able to convert back to original if needed.
I can supply you with an inlet manifold for your modification. I was a little reluctant at first to offer it to you as items like that are fairly rare these days, and somebody may be desparate to find one to get a bike back on the road. However, I found that I had two and so you are welcome to have the not so good one for your modification.
I have your address and will send it off to you if you still need it. Just refund the postage and put what-ever value you like on the manifold.
Thanks a lot Dave! I do understand your hestitation and really appriciate it. And the condition is not very important as I will, after modification, tidy it all up and (re-)nickelplate it so it looks original. The goal is to make my mod look as period as possible. Most probably such a mod might even have been available/done in the twenties too.
By the way, if for some reason I will not need it after all I will return it to you of course.
The reason for my late reply is that I just got back from a two weeks holiday near Hastings. We went to see the Pioneerrun and I spoke to quite a few Scott owners there! And nice to see that amongst the first bikes to arrive in Brighton was a Scott!
Thanks again Dave!
I posted the manifold off to you this morning. I hope that iot does the job. It is a pity that I didn’t know that you were at the Pioneer Run at Brighton. Three of us from the South London Section were down there as marshals along with our Scotts.
I could have handed it over to you there and then.
At the run I have spoken quite a while with 3 guys with Scotts. It were all tele fork bikes but not brums. The bikes were there quite early. Did not ask for their names…. Might that have been you???
Cheers and thanks again!
Possibly, but I was on my 1938 girder forked Prototype Clubman Special. The other two guys were on tele-forked 1947 and 1949 Scotts. we were there from 10.00 onwards.
Well, it was you alright! This must be your bike!
I think I spoke a while with the guy owning this machine. He also had a two speeder.
Yes, that is my bike. The guy you spoke to is my friend Peter Claydon who owns the 1947 Scott in the last picture.
The manifold came in today. Thanks Dave. It may not be the most beautiful one but it will do fine. Will refund you asap.
I still do find it strange that this type of manifold seems too short. When I slip on my Binks two jet carb or a AMAL (2)76 carb the manifold is too short as the carb body hits the side of the casing. So I have to use an extension bush. See picture below and picture in first posting.
Might there have been longer versions of the Binks 2 or 3 jet carb? Or of the AMAC carb? I went through the 3 Scott Selection books but could no find a good picture of this type of manifold with a carb fitted…
