That's right, the shape of the head on the intake side is different, water jacket won't seal.

I got it to work. I removed material on the cylinder head (boss on the intake side that interferes with the intake manifold). I then matched the ports between the head & manifold. Works well. -John

Thanks for the responses, guys. I think that, while it can be done, the mods needed are beyond what I'm comfortable with.
Looks like I'm in the market for an S2 head.

When Jim Steck built my head he used a 2L Bosch head and a Euro 1600 carb manifold. He did a lot of machining and the motor made 192 HP.

Weber Intake Manifold for a Bosch head

I bought it when offered, but I have several common Euro versions
so I will sell it if you want it. The nice thing about it is the ports align with the Bosch head`s ports where the early Euro versions require port matching to the later (Bosch) head port positions.

Just send me a PM.

But it`s easy to machine off the offending bulge to use the common Euro manifold. BUT you will have to use the correct gasket for the head.

Manifold

It does not have the mounting flange for the Early weber pivot arm to bolt too.

If your car uses the Spica cable pull fixtures I can fabricate a bracket and cable locking fitting for a "Down pulling" cable linkage.

The manifold I have has a middle Carb mount and the steel plate on it ties the two carbs together for syncronization so a outer plate isn`t needed. The Mounts are in perfect condition and shorter than the Nord versions.

If you want pics let me know.
