Brian Muir's Humpy at Lakeside International, 1962, what make of carbs does it have ? Are they dual throat downdraught Webers ? Is this the same car later raced by Spencer Martin ? I had an idea Spencer's car had 3 SU's.
Ray assures me he changed the carbies as soon as he started preparing the car for Muiro, Dick...
But you and I both know that can't be right. I'm sure I saw either current pics of those carbies (which means it had to be December 1961 or later) or saw them in the metal (had to be October '62 or later) in Muir's car.
Anyway, he doesn't know what Webers they were, but they were Webers. Possibly off some Fiat? The engine was originally built for Ian Geoghegan, by the way.
Ray fitted triple SUs, 1½" SUs. They would still have been there when Max got it. The S4 had triple DCOEs, of course.
