I'm looking for a carb to run my standard Rover V8- A Holley 390 or something like that. Also an inlet manifold for the Rover V8, a suitable electric fuel pump and (not so urgently) a bug catcher too.

I know, I know, but does anyone have a 'spare' extractor system or headers and J tubes for a Beetle please???
MUST be cheap, they are for Dales VolksRod, I don't want him to run it with what he has at the moment...
