Carb intermediate flange removal 2e2

Post by njl1968 » Sun Mar 06, 2022 1:33 pm

Hi,
I have been doing some work on my 2e2 carb, and thought it a good idea to replace the intermediate flange onto the the inlet manifold, it being 32 years old. Thought it was just 4 bolts but there is a metal retaining bracket that stops removing the bolts , does this mean there are nuts under the manifold retaining it and are not accessible without removing the manifold. Am I correct or missing something obvious? Any suggestions welcome.

Cheers

Neil

fold the tabs down on the retaining bracket then you can undo the bolts to the manifold
