06/04/2005 20:17:51   Alex   Congratulations on your findings. I have seen DFI's and sister types like DFO's and DGV's more than once on EBAY though (I check out EBAY UK, US and Germany on a regular basis) but they are scarce. Sometimes wrecked carbs turn up for little money or stock lots of spare parts. Are you missing a choke valve or another part in one of the throats (maybe I don't quite understand what you need; English isn't my native language and occasionally I am a bit at loss with technical terms)? If you miss a valve, what is the size? Maybe the valves from a 32/36 DGV have the same size; if so I have one for spare.

It has a small float chamber so most of the twin choke weber floats you think would fit dont. I found out that a 34 ich float would fit without too much problem.
The choke linkages are just the wire links between the choke levers which I can make by scaling some photo's up.
Thanks for the offer of help.

Do you have a plan for where it'll end up?
