    Carburettor replacement (Weber + adapter plates)

    Hi all!!
    remembering the past difficulties in reassembling the airlog after disassembling the carburettors I thought I had a brilliant idea creating a template.
    I measured all the holes in the air log and made a template that helped me mount the carburetors at the right distance so that the air log could be easily assembled.
    I made the template with 6.2 mm holes and I tested it with the airlog, verifying that it was perfect, the holes of the template and those of the air-log match perfectly. And now comes the surprise .. I reassembled the carburetors but I discovered that I can't mount the template..
    It's as if the two carburettors can't be put at the right distance so that the air-log can be mounted. Probably the idea of ​​making 6.2 mm holes on the template is not a good idea (too much precision).. maybe it's better than 7mm or even 8mm (on the air-log the holes are 8).
    Today my ego has been hit hard.
    where could my mistake be? What is the wheelbase of the two carburettors and the difference in height between the two?
    Thanks to all!!

    Re: Carburettors and AIR-LOG don't fit

    Hallo!!
    The pain continues .. despite the template I can't fit the air-log.
    I checked everything .. the intake pipes, re-measured the carburettors and checked the adapter plates.
    Everything would seem correct.
    But checking the air-log I noticed that on it is stamped the code 121 094 04 08.
    In the tech info it seems that the correct code was 121 090 04 29.
    Could it be that my air-log is not the correct model?
    This would explain so many things ...
    Can anyone tell me if my air-log is the correct one?
    Thanks!!!
