Inlet manifold (throttle bodies) for a Weslake cast iron 8 port head running TJ fuel injection to buy or loan to make pattern to cast new manifold - SORRY it is manifold for LUCAS injection for the 8 port on this racer restoration not TJ

Hi Julian
I think I have 4 different types: 2 x Steel fabricated and 2 x aluminium.
I think I also have a spare alloy one somewhere but it's originally from an Arden head but could easily be modified to fit.
I will try to post some pictures here soon.
FYI I believe that the throttle body spacing is the same as or similar to a Weber DCOE

Email sent direct
There will be questions I am sure
Fire away
Steel manifolds are mainly home made and I'm sure you are capable of doing that so no point in sending pictures.
KDK and HDK have Vita's special Gp5 extra short Throttle bodies which mount directly to the Weslake Head

Contact Simon Young at British Sporting Cars in Australia.
He has had the inlet manifolds and sliding throttle body assemblies re manufactured.
