Posting here prior to ebay just in case they are of interest to anyone,

Pair of 48DCOE weber carbs in excellent condition. Came off a 2litre Pinto engine.

Ideal for someone running a big bore Twincam

?480 ono.

Lotus used 45mm throats with 37mm chokes on the stock 2.2 Litre 912HC (Dellorto DHLA, but very similar to Weber DCOE). I have a pair of DHLA 45s on a hotrod, 2.2-converted 907, and it will pull hard to 8000 rpm. I suspect it would take a pretty healthy big-bore Twin Cam running flat out to make good use of a pair of 48s. No data, just my humble opinion.
