I'm planning to add taps to my 450 this spring, after a couple of timing modes.
I'm going to get these, in 6mm format. I'm more comfortable tapping the larger size - a little LokTite, Bob's yer' Uncle.
Just leave the rubber plugs on for riding, hoses fit right on the nipple, no adapters or screws required.

That was a really convenient place there on that 2-stroker carb !!!!!!
I'll be interested in how your Morgans work with the 2-stroke.
Those rubber blind plugs that block off the barb when not in use perish quickly and leak air. Best to remove the barb and fit a screw and washer.tbpmusic said:Just leave the rubber plugs on for riding, hoses fit right on the nipple, no adapters or screws required.

I can notice a difference on my 650, seem to smooth it out a little, best I can tell you is get a piece of hose and try it, the early 650's had port interconnects cast into the head and they made more hp than the later modelstbpmusic said:
It should. My '70 Norton 750 that I had waaaaaaayyyyyy back had the same tube interconnecting the intake manifolds. As Leethal mentioned, they used to crack and had to be replaced occassionally.tbpmusic said:
