I was surfing around and ran into this

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MG-MGB-62-69-Carburetor-Setup-With-Manifolds-/322556295617?hash=item4b19da79c1:g:VHEAAOSw0j9ZOsgo&vxp=mtr


Seems like a great deal since ALL the parts are there for a conversion. I few bucks to rebuild the carbs, gaskets, etc, and you late model guys would have a big jump in performance.

Rarely does one find all that is needed for a reasonable price thumbs up

Someone needs to score this.

Thanks for the heads up. I took a chance and ordered it. My 79B needs this conversion.

That was a really good deal, even with rebuilding the carbs and sourcing the few missing pieces that is still a steal.

I am hoping so since it seemed complete, with intake and exhaust manifold, carbs, linkages and even the air cleaners (Which won't fit my 79) and even included the shipping in the $225.

I had looked at a couple of other ways to get all the parts but most required me to order carbs form one source, exhaust from another, or maybe end up with duplicate parts, for more outlay.

I'll report back after parts received and then try to document the conversion here.

Good deal Peter, been out of town for a few days, glad a fellow Tar Heel is going for the conversion.thumbs up

Blast the manifold and replace the studs, polish the intake and generally restore the bits and it's a great package. Keep up posted along with your seat of the pants evaluation of performance increase!

Steve, this will be a winter project. I'll rebuild the carbs and clean up all the parts. Maybe out high temp silver paint on the exhaust manifold. I'll need to think about what additional parts will be needed. Next section of exhaust downpipe. Maybe as simple as item 21 here?

Next I will need to figure the emissions and vacuum routing. This is an early intake manifold with PCV. Do I keep that or delete? And the evaporative loss system - how to tie it all in.

Anyway thanks for the alert. Parts should arrive Friday.

Glad you got it, saving me the trouble of buying then installing on mine. Greatly looking forward to hearing how this improves performance on what I assume is your OE ZS.

Gary,

There is a set of carbs with intake and heat shield on eBay now that looks even cleaner than the kit I bought. Does not have the exhaust manifold. I think the same vendor.

Anyway plenty of choices out there.

eBay wins out over the BST forum so often these days. Why? I have no idea, at least one has a pretty good chance of knowing what is on offer with the BST.

When I converted mine I did pick up (used) item 21.

Depending on if you've changed the exhaust from stock whatever. I measured 2X & 3X on where to cut the late model down pipe and graft the 21 section in. Definitely in the bottom horizontal section.

I then took the cut pieces to my local Midas - The guy welded it for free! I ended up giving the guy a $20 tip.

I got my HIF setup from Anthony for about that price and he sent all of the little bits and pieces that I needed for a pretty much complete conversion at if I recall correctly $300USD. For me that small purchase snowballed into a full rebuild on the engine, damned project creep. Rather than scab a new downpipe into my existing exhaust system I went with a new TT Sport exhaust from Moss, I figured 'what's another $300' after I all of the love that I gave the engine and driveline.
