Carb question 1980 Pantera
Hello all! I recently purchased two 1980 Panteras. Both sleds are in great shape, but both had carbs removed. Included was four carbs, two that appeared to be rebuilt that were sealed in ziplock bags. I attempted to place those on the sleds, but the throat diameter is smaller than the sleeve on the intake. It appears that whoever had them before was in process of switching to the slide carbs instead of the butterfly carbs that were on it new. Trouble is the carbs do not have the linkage attached and I don't have a clue of what I need to hook them up. I also need to hook up the oil injection. I have the throttle and choke cables still there. I just need to attach them to the carb
Do I need some sort of adapter to mount the carbs to the intake? Or should I try to find a carb with a different throat diameter? The carbs I have are Mikuni.
If someone has pictures of how these carbs are attached that would be great. Or if anyone has the linkage especially the oil injection from the carb for sale that would be great.
I just saw a carb on eBay for an 80 but it is a butterfly carb, and from what I have read they POS.
