    Hi,

    I am considering building up a 1976 Lemans 850 to run Land Speed Racing. The class will be Production. This means everything about the bike has to be "stock" looking.
    The carbs I would like to use are the PHM40 Dell'Orto.
    These were available, I understand, in the racing kit... at the time. Since the kit was available from Guzzi, and the kit was installed by Guzzi (I believe), the carbs can be used in my Production class... if there is authoritive documentation.
    Now the problem...
    Pictures of the PHM40's installed in a 850 Lemans are needed. I have found written info in Falloon's Bible explaining the kit etc but no pics.

    Does anyone know where I can find photographic "proof" of the PHM40 install? Anyone have pictures of a 850 Lemans with PHM40's?

    This should be fun...

    Thanx,

    Alex

    Hmmmm cool article. I like the way the carbs are mounted but it isn't exactly what I was looking for.
    Thanks tho.
    Looking for a Guzzi article or advertising showing the PHM40's.
    I wonder if Guzzi ever advertised the racing kit.

    I'm a little confused. You asked for pictures of a Lemans 850with 40mm carbs installed. The article I linked to is a factory Guzzi 850 production racer with 40mm carbs (also identifiable by the lack of chokes).

    Your original post asked for photographic proof. Now you're asking for Guzzi advertising.

    Maybe you could be clearer so people don't waste their time helping you......

    Hey Chris,
    I have that manual and have gone through it but on re-reading it Ithink I could use the manual as "proof" to the inspectors.
    Also, I like the section on balancing the crank.
    Thanx for the post,

    Alex
