Dual 34mm Weber ICT Carburetors

I was just at a VW junkyard and was lucky enough to acquire a 110hp w/ PG drivetrain that was on a trike. The PO had installed a set of Weber 34 ICT carbs.
Anyone with experience, good or bad, with this setup?
(I plan to put the whole drivetrain in a shortened corvair frame for autocrossing.)

Finally got around to attempt a bench test of the engine this weekend. Even with plugs out rotating by hand seems extremely 'tight'. We decided to put the block on the shelf for a later time. We pulled all the chrome cowling, acessories, etc. and of course the carbs. Installed the whole weber setup on my '65 Monza daily driver. (4spd, slight cam w/ ultimate headers, elec. fuel pump) WOW! What a performance improvement. VERY noticeable difference in throttle response all through the gears. Cruising at 70MPH, 3K RPM, Mash the 'go' pedal and she pullls strong all the way to 85 and 4.5K. Started right up 1st time at 40degrees outside temp this morning, I drove to work (65 miles) and used 1/8th of a tank. I'm going to fill up on my way home and do an economy run through the week.
So far I am duly impressed and pleased with my "Baby Webers"!

If you don't post pictures of this set-up, it's not really on there. Love to see it!

Here is a link to SEP 82 Popular Mechanics article on Weber 34 ICT

In the discussion above , re: ICT 34mm baby webers, there is mention of the Baby Dells (Dellorto FRD's aka Baby Dells or sometimes known as "Freds") The Baby Dells have not been produced since at least the late 1980's, but are very much like the Baby Webers. The Baby Dells were known to be somewhat superior to the Baby Webers in providing larger power boost in VW applications and were more popular at one point in time, 30+ yrs ago.

On the way home this afternoon, my temporary 'testing only' fuel line system developed a (thankfully) small leak. But here are the promised pictures:
The weber to corvair intake adaptors are attached by allen heads thru the shouldered aluminum plate. The webers fit well with no obstructions across the accelerator linkage. original accelerator rod was shortened by PO and bolted right up.

I'm kinda proud of myself with my 'VW junkyard' find:
Set of weber carbs, adaptor plates, chrome filter covers, and all linkage.
Chrome top shroud.
Chrome valve covers.
OTTO deep finned oil pan.
Chrome "Buggy" Headers.
Complete EM rear suspension.
Set of 2 EM 4 bolt chrome wheels.
RH code engine that turns by hand (albeit "TIGHT").
Working EM PG and 3:55 diff.

And to answer j3m's "Ten Million Dollar" question:
Because it had been well covered on a pallet for two years, and who wants just a bunch of old corvair parts anyway.winking smiley
