Get 'er Done
Most carburetor adapters allow you to bolt on a carburetor that wasn't designed to fit a particular manifold. They rarely take into account air and fuel distribution problems. Wilson Manifolds has changed all that with its low-profile lightweight carb adapters. These adapters provide an efficient transition from carb to manifold to optimize flow and distribution while minimizing fuel separation. All Wilson carb adapters are 1-1/2 inches tall or less, are CNC-machined from aluminum billet, and are anodized to resist corrosion.
