SU Linkage Parts
« on: February 14, 2020, 03:13:48 PM »
I am doing a bare metal up restoration of a 1980 MGB Roadster, converting it to chrome and installing an SD1 3500 V8, five speed box and a V8 back axle.  I have a modified SD1 plenum and a matching fabricated inlet adaptor to mount the two SD1 HIF6 carbs, See the photos.

What I am missing at this time is the original factory V8 linkages between the carburetors as these are no longer available.  I see on eBay some linkage bits which I may be able to adapt to suit the twin HIF6 set-up.

Do you know of any source in the USA of SU linkage pieces which I could buy to recreate the original factory V8 set up on the MGB GT V8 with the cast aluminium adaptor, part BHH988?

That body shell is looking VERY nice!

The only two people in the USA that come to mind are:

Joe Curto who is the SU king in the country: and

Paul Dierschow of Sportscar Craftsmen in Denver, Colorado:  CPaul has SO MANY used parts.

Maybe one of these guys has a clue or can point you to someone who can assist.
