moke carbs
« on: February 20, 2020, 10:06:51 PM »
Hi all,
Im new to your forum, all the way from uk!
I am having problems fitting larger carbs to my moke engine, the moke is 1972, ex australian.
I have been informed by a well known moke man, that the australian moke bulkhead is different than the english one, in that there is a large dish in the bulkhead below the speedo , is this correct, as my moke has no dish, as I want to fit a 138o cc engine, it looks like I may have to alter the bulkhead to allow a bigger carb, does any one have a pic of the bulkhead with the dish shown?
Any usefull help will be much appreciated!
cheers,Mick

Hi Mick,
Welcome aboard.
Not sure I understand what what you meen by "Larger Carbs", is it a Webber or Twin SU's or going to an 1 3/4 " SU?

Here is a pic from my '81 Moke before paint.


And this is my '66 Moke.


I am not sure when the bulkhead was changed, but I thought it was around '68 when the Big wheel started.

Hi,

The first time the bulkhead changed to accept the larger carby was on the 1971-73 Export Mokes bodies(1275 with 1.5" SU) only and then it reappeared 75-76'ish for all bodies from then on.

Where is the Carby fouling on the body/bulkhead? If you have some pictures of the carby and manifold you are using we might be able to provide more useful advice.

In Pavel's picture(of a Mini) that allows for OEM manifolds and carbies to be used where as what HP and I where referring too was the depression in the firewall to handle the larger donut air cleaner that was used in Australia on the standard 1.5" SU carby.

Hi Half pint, I have finally started to fit a metro 1300 engine to my moke. I can see by all the helpfull pics you guys have posted, that I will have to modify my bulkhead, so that the HF 44 I would like to fit, will go into the bulkhead space. We now have the blasted corona virus, that is confining us to our homes, so it may be a while before my moke hits the road again, stay safe and keep on moking. Mick
