Kinsler Fuel Injection, Inc, 1834 THUNDERBIRD TROY, MICHIGAN 48084 U.S.A. Phone (248) 362-1145 Fax (248) 362-1032 23 VINTAGE KINSLER SMALL BLOCK CHEVROLET V8 This was widely used from 1967 till 1986, when we introduced our first three piece manifold. Still available for the person who needs the “vintage” look. Constant Flow or Lucas available. For Dirt Track, with constant flow. Straight up ramtubes to use K&N air filters that cover two tubes each; gives 1/4 the air flow restriction as running one air cleaner on each tube. The bells are retained inside the air cleaners for best air flow. Low nozzles for best throttle response Standard canted aluminum ramtubes. Vertical Lucas, horizontal ign. Optional stainless braid teflon lines • 2 1/4” (2.250”) and 2 7/16” (2.437”) throttle sizes. • Aluminum base plate; seals hot engine oil from backside of runners (cooler incoming air charge gives more horsepower). • Bronze throttle shaft bushings and our spring-screw universal throttle shaft linkage. • Standard Chevrolet type water crossover with thermostat housing; gives maximum water flow for excellent cooling. • Extra rib of material around the throttle bore area helps prevent distortion that causes throttle sticking on other brands. • Aluminum or magnesium runners. Standard Features These manifolds were built on a GM Rochester FI baseplate, with metal added to the port (see arrow) for use on later Chev heads.... This will also adapt Rochester FI to later heads. These are available, also the runners, etc. Excellent for road and oval track racing... you now need larger throttles for drag racing. Some brands of manifolds don’t have a good flowing runner, so they use a very large throttle to get good top end power, but then the runner is so big that it has little low end torque, thus poor performance out of the turns. The runner in this manifold flows efficiently, allowing a medium size throttle to give excellent top end power while maintaining superior low end torque. For Can-Am, with optional steel ramtubes. High placed nozzles for best top end power. Horizontal Lucas with vertical Vertex. Horizontal Vertex optional.
