Installing dual carb manifolds

Post by videoguy009 » Tue Jan 20, 2015 7:49 am

I am trying to install 40mm dual carb manifolds with the engine in on my VW Thing that has plenty of room in the engine bay.The nuts In the rear are next to impossible to get on.I can barely reach my fingers around to touch the stud let alone to start the nut on the stud.The manifolds are the new empi beefy offsets that came with my deluxe hex bar linkage kit It seems to me these manifolds were made to install with the engine out like they show in the empi video.I had to push the engine tin in around the plugs because the back side of the manifolds were too thick and the manifold would not slide down over the studs.Would I be better off using the straight ones or some other type and still be able to use my hex bar linkage?I know it can be a PITA to get the rear nuts on but my situation is next to impossible.
