MANIFOLD & CARB FOR FIAT 1200 SPIDER

Postby Lars » Sun Sep 21, 2014 7:46 pm

Hello!

I bought a 1961 Fiat Spider 1200 last year and have been working on it to improve it, as it is far from perfect.

It turns out that someone rep´laced the original Weber 36 DCD carb and its manifold with a single barrel tiny carb and manifold from the contemporary Fiat 1100 sedan!

I need to get hold of a good 36 DCD carb but most importantly the correct manifold for the 1200 Spider, as I cannot fit the correct carb on this one, obviuoulsy.

The present carb is also so tall I cannot close the hood if I oput the filter on! Other than this, I would like the car to perform and look as originally.
So can anybody help me locate one such manifold somewjhere? I am located in Valparaiso, Chile but willing to get it flown from Nepal if that proves necessary.

Locating a carb would be nice too but I see there a few options for locating the around.

As an alternative, I could think of installing some performance carb & manifold setup for the car, should such a thing be available.

Please give me a hand somebody!!!

Thanks!
Lars

Thanks for the advise, LANCIAHF.

I am restoring an Appia Terza Serie sedan, btw.

Sorry no pictures on the Appia yet as I just started restoration...

By the way, the suggestion to contact C Obert worked. I am buying a manifold and a carb from him!!

Thanks a lot!

Lars; I have quite a few parts from a second series Appia Sedan that I parted out many years ago, are you missing anything that I might be able to provide for you? Not a scam....

Hi Milt:

good to know, I'll keep it in mind.
I have no clue as to what I might need as yet.

Thanks,
Lars
