    Default another identify these carbs for me please thread

    hey guys i was given these carbs when i bought my 240K. The K originally had a single carb on it.




    Just wondering what my options are. im gathering their of a Z? are they worthy of putting on?

    i want to get them restored and a kit through them. has anyone got theirs restored so that their back to that golden shiny colour? do they dip them to do that?

    cheers

    If I were to hazard a guess, I would say those are the flat tops that the markets outside of the US received.

    By the way, the US flat tops don't seem to be that problematic to me, and the ones outside the US were even better.
