Manifold locating ring

Post by tweedy998 »

Hi all,

Anyone know where I can source a manifold locating ring which goes between the 12G295 head and the 12A661 inlet manifold?

Currently out of stock at Mini Spares, so drawing a blank.

I'm also after some half nuts for attaching the carbs to said manifold, I've rooted out two in my boxes/jars/tins of spares, but would be nice to have a couple more, again, I'm drawing a blank sourcing these...

Cheers! Ed.

And confirm the price is the same (or different :roll: ) to that shown on their website.

I've got some new locating rings if you can't get hold of any. Where in Yorkshire are you?

Namricks are 15 mins from where I work. Great shop to pop into to stock up on fixings.
