    I wonder what it would cost to have a run of new Peugeot manifolds made? Of course they would need to be footprinted to work with a 2150 carb as opposed to a dual Solex design.

    If I could do it and be assured of a three year break even, I would, but it would never happen.

    I'm out over $500.00 on these stupid manifolds and I've exhausted every one I could find in North America and Australia...

    Are all the Australian sources dried up at this point?

    Has anyone looked into our EU options? A while back I was in contact with a few folks from the Talbot Tagora community when I was looking for a dual 3 bbl Webber setup, but it sounds like all the Talbot Tagora SX parts cars are long gone.

    I suspect that there might be a few Renault 30's in European junk yards. Since the PRV mechanical pumps are available through Latvia, I suspect that some Peugeots and/or Renaults made their way to the former Eastern Bloc as well. Does anyone on here speak Latvian? :-)
