Chrome Plated Dellorto DHLA40 Carburetor with Dellorto Vacuum Fuel Pump and Rare Individual Runner Intake Manifold

These parts were purchased from a private party for former HTT member Xanadu who never had the chance to use them.   As many of you know, Xanadu was severely injured in a motorcycle accident and was in a coma for a number of weeks......he almost didnít make it.  It was by the grace of G-d he survived, but he is no longer able to ride.

Everything in the photograph is included.  $1500. 

I run the same components on my 97" Softail (110 tq, 93 hp) and like them a lot.  They make excellent torque over a broad rpm band, plus they look bad.  They perform best when used with the fuel pump.  The intake is a rare Performance Plus manifold with separate runners, which allow each cylinder to be tuned individually.

Please send PM for detailed photographs.

Been looking for a air cleaner like the one on the carb.

ecir50,
That's a Performance Plus unit.......solid aluminum billet with a K&N aircleaner.  They're the same people that made the individual runner intake manifold that's on the carb.  Unfortunately the owner/inventor has passed, and they've been out of business for years.

New Price  $1400

Here (I hope) are a couple of short videos showing how smoothly the engine can be tuned with the individual runner manifold.  Notice the water bottle.

New price $1200.

That's a lot of performance potential for the money.
