Depending if the carburettor is going on a Escort or a Fiesta you will need the accelerator
bracket of the respective car.
Carburettor to Manifold gaskets.
To fit a DFT carburettor to a 1400 you will need to change the manifold, The reason for this is
that the 1600 manifold has larger ports. Pic 1 shows
one port from each manifold. The port size for the 1400 is 31mm high and 28mm
wide, the port size for the 1600 is 35mm high and 30mm wide. If you were to use
the wrong manifold there would be air resistance created, causing a reduction in
The holes where the carburettor attaches to the manifold (Pic 2) are to small
on the 1400 manifold, these will need to be machined out to 35mm Ø a good
engine company should be able to this for about £20.
Test fit all the components, you might find that the accelerator assemble is
not horizontal, to correct this use gaskets. (Pic 3)
