Not sure what motor your using but with Nova based motors it's very little work - start by rotating the link connection to about the 9:30 position (look directly at it and imagine the hour hand of a clock) - take .5 to .75mm off the end of the set screw boss - drop the motor into place with carb slightly loose - pull carb to open position and leave .5 to .75mm clearance to the tank - push carb down into the block to make sure the o-ring seal is compressed and tighten the pinch bolt.

I had that problem with my Sirio. Just put a oring between carb and motor block so the carb is a bit higher.

Not advisable to put any extra o-ring, we have mounted Sirio, RB, Picco, Nova Rossi and most known On road engines without a problem. I'm telling you Bobby just send me the car, I'll hook you up!

Bobby, I have RB, Nova new/old style carby and OS engine installed to my 966 no problem at all. Just make sure you use battery is thinner then 17mm(I am still using Nimh, no need to add weight), rotate the carby so that is not hitting the tank when slide bar is full extend also bend the linkage about 30degree, I will take a picture post it up later.

Well, if you can lower the tank as much as possible it shouldn't need any spacing below the carb. I need the oring because my battery pack doesn't let me lower the tank fully.

Hi,

a lot of drivers are using the orange alu sway bar mount for the 966.
I think it was available on the wc 2011.
Is there an online shop, where I can buy it?

Thanks
Olli
