XJ-6 carburetor decisions?

Started By: Richard LeBaron on 2013-09-09 02:43:26

I have an '76 XK6C that is just wanting to perform like it was designed. This is a US version with the Zenith Strombergs with ALL the emissions stuff. I have access to the European SU SIF-F carbs designed for EU spec XJs and I also am looking at a Weber direct conversion (sold on eBay).

For those performance affcionados out there, what say you?

thanks very much

I think SIF/HIF carbs are still only 1.75" aren't they? Go for 2" HS8 or HD8 and matching manifold. Contact me off list if you want a set cheap before I put them on eBay.

The SIF-7 carbs are 1.875, go figure. What do you have in terms HD8s and manifold? A D-type, Really?

61 M2 3.4, 61 M2 3.8, 63 XKE OTC, 76 XJ6C, 89 XJS

Not sure if commerce is allowed on here? Probably better to contact me off-list so I can send photos etc.
