    Daimler 250 V8 bits

    Does anybody know if I can get bits for my little Hemi? Ideally I’d like an I take manifold to take an Edelbrock carb or something similar.
    Some dress up bits would be good too and maybe tubular exhaust manifolds.

    Edelbrock / Holley are way too big for a daimler . Best conversion is to a 38 DGAS Weber

    Thanks for the info Kev. Finding a manifold will be harder than the carb.

    Not spoken in ages.....how are you? And I still owe you a coffee/beer.

    seen a few with the top machined off the standard manifold and fitted with a weber, not hard to get inlets for conversion
    at least dick turpin had the decency to wear a mask!

    Last time I did a conversion I used the very top part as a high rise manifold rather than cut down and have it low .

    I do have an idea for twin single choke webers using the existing manifold with adapters so you can run side by side twins . I've already proved they work by converting an SU to single choke weber with a rise adapter.

    I might actually get out and about this year to collect that coffee

    agreed, not quite 'machined' but i've cut the top off of a couple of rover v8 inlets with a disc cutter to fit 38dgas webers to in the past. i make an adapter to go on top of the carb that takes a 4 barrel type 14" air filter too.
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    I have modified a few rover manifolds to take both webber carbs and Holleys with good results, the Daimler manifold is similar in design to the rover (twin SU carbs) so shouldn't be too hard to do, hardest bit is ensuring the carb sits level when the engine is fitted.

    Many years ago we cut the top off a Daimler manifold and welded on a Holley adapter plate for a mate's T-bucket. He ran a 390 vac.sec. I think and the only problem I remember was the carb icing up once at the top of a hill on the way to Shakey on a fresh morning. Oh, and the hole in one of the pistons caused by the nitrous shot
