208 Kinsler Fuel Injection, Inc, 1834 THUNDERBIRD TROY, MICHIGAN 48084 U.S.A. www.Kinsler.com Phone (248) 362-1145 Fax (248) 362-1032 LUCAS METERING Lucas fuel metering equipment was used on all F-1 cars from the mid 50’s to mid 70’s, and most top sports cars, including all of the Can-Am cars of the 60’s and 70’s. Jim Kinsler started KFI in 1967... built the Lucas systems for most of the Can-Am cars, including the factory McLaren cars made famous by the always-winning Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme. It is still very good for racing, as it has very precise fuel distribution at any RPM or throttle angle, and excellent vapor handling. Lucas only made metering pieces, not complete injection systems. To make a complete system you need a manifold, metering unit, pump, drive, fuel cam, filter, linkage, calibration, etc. We were the North American distributor for Lucas in the 70’s and 80’s. We still have much new old stock and used equipment for 4, 6, 8, and 12 cylinder engines. We offer a premium line of modified Lucas equipment. The parts for every metering unit, pump, and nozzle are qualified, then assembled, and flowtested. The quality of these “Premium Race Grade” pieces is unsurpassed. We service Lucas equipment for any application, including Ferrari, Maserati, Can-Am cars, F-1 cars, Triumph, offshore boats, etc. We rebuild worn and seized metering units, pumps, nozzles, etc. to new specs. © 2017 A.
