Anybody running dual carbs on a Shovel? What kind, what size and as always, pics are much appreciated.
my next door neighbors shovel has a weber off an old vw and i believe its a 40 or 42mm and looks bitchin
it's a weber DCOE i guess..
i have one on my ironhead, the carb used to be on a stroked shovel before.
if you don't know what you are doing they are a pain in the ass to dail in, due to the many jets and air correctors. and more adjusting shit..
but if you know how to handle theese puppy's you have a easy starting high torque monster! the webber does have a tendensy to be on the rich side in the high rpm's but a shovel does not make high rpm's..
need a jet??X2
Thanks so far but actually looking for dual (two seperate ) carbs. Not dual throat. Man, that Weber is a big sum-bitch!I had a couple of down drafts on a Volkswagon once.

I have put duel Amals on one manifold . And My old shovel I ran two front heads with a specail ground cam with two amals on the right side .
OK. I get running dual carbs where one carb feeds an individual cylinder. you can individually tune the carb to it's dedicated combustion chamber. But what is the point of dual carbs running into a single intake manifold shared by the two cylinders?
Arby have you checked out Cyclexchange?

How did you run duals with a stock manifold??? Any pics?
Hey met a guy runnin' 2/32mm Keihin Flatslide PWK Carbs... Got 'em from Mikes XS. Course it's on an ironhead. Let me see if I can't track him down and see if I can't get some pics this weekend.
I am running the cycle x dual carb setup on my rubber mount sporty, I did have to use a yost 1" spacer to get the manifold to clear the cylinders (which means I'm having serious leg clearing issues, and I'm not going to mid controls). Actually thinkin about selling the setup and going back to the CV, although, your going to need a different manifold for that shovel.
