Bentley manual does not cover carbs?

Post by sima112 » 15th August 2017 - 8:41pm

Hi guys,

I've just bought Bentley manual and with disappointment found out that it does include fuel section for carbs and manual fuel pump.
Does anyone owns a different edition of the manual or some which cover fuel section for double carb (mine is squareback 1971),
and be so kind to copy this chapter for me?
I'm not keen enough to order another manual, because Im located in Colombia and the postage is same as the value of the book.

Many Thanks Sima

If it's any consolation, We're all jealous of Your proximity to Klassic Fab !

The Bentley Manual was for the US Market, Hence no coverage of Carbs
Haynes covers them quite well- I'll see what I can do re scanning it for You

Thank you very much purplepeter,

This will be definitely helpful. I'd also kindly ask for the fuel pump section as Bentley again has only electric pump covered, not mechanical.
If possible.

Thank you Sima
