AZMP-DFV-12004
Inlet manifold set for 1:12 Ford DFV engines

Retail price will be $55.00 for the complete set. Also check out the Video's on Mac's Modeling face-book page, just added today 3/28/14


Each set will include a Left hand and Right hand bank, comprising of:
Lower manifold
Upper manifold
Throttle slide
Velocity stack washer (Simulated clamp)
PE lower manifold template for drilling mounting holes in the manifold and DFV engine.
Springs and wire for the back of the manifolds, plus the small PE brackets to attach to the manifold. (Against popular belief, these are not return springs)

You will need to drill out the holes to suit the size of detail cap screws you want to use:
RB Motion cap screws #1709, you will need 4 packets. Hole size required 0.33MM Diameter (0.013" Dia.)
Tuner Model Manufacturer cap screws # T2M1021, again you will need 4 packets. Hole size required 0.3mm Dia. (0.012" Dia)

The first two images are "Rendered" from the 3D software. First image is without the velocity stack washers, the second has them. Click on the thumbnail views for a full size image.
I have not shown the throttle slide end folded over as it will have to be to trap the wire than will run through the two springs

Pictures 6 and 7 are of the first test parts in white metal blanks. Some machining operations were required as can be seen in the images below to allow the throttle plate to slide.

Although it is fairly self explanetary, this exploded view shows how the manifold should be assembled.

80 of RB motion #1709 cap screws, with blackened heads.

The tools used to make the heads look black. First rinse the cap screw in Isopropal Alcohol, or something similar to get rid of any oils etc.
