I do have a pair of these, but they are the type that require that you redrill the holes in the air cleaner for the mounting studs and that relocate the air cleaner about an inch to the rear. I'd like to find a pair that mount the original air cleaner without redrilling. They will look like this picture I stole from MatthewCervi...

I don't think such an adapter exists, everyone I've seen requires new holes.
Here are the ones I have...

Note that the stud is behind the venturis while in the first pic the stud is centered on the venturis. I don't believe the ones with the stud centered on the venturis require a redrill of the air cleaner.

JAM Engineering was the "go to" company back in the day, when people were regularly converting Zeniths to Webers. The JAM air filter adapter is the one pictured in Dick's post #4 above - you can see the "JAM" cast into it.. Unfortunately, it was designed with the stud coming directly out of the adapter behind the chokes, necessitating that the air cleaner be shifted rearward.

So the question is who makes the adapter with the stud mounted on a hoop, allowing the air cleaner to remain in its original position, and eliminating the need to drill additional holes?

Dick: Have you tried asking Matthew Cervi where he got those adapters?

A little searching on ebay located the adapter Dick wants, distributed by Redline:


Unfortunately, I only saw it as a part of a complete conversion kit and didn't see just the adapter available separately on the Redline site - suggest you contact Redline.

====================

And here's a third style of Zenith --> Weber adapter sold through ebay, though it looks like this one still shifts the air cleaner rearward:

Jay,
The one you linked to in the kit is the one I'm looking for. I do not see Redline offering it separately, however. I'll email them.

Sure thing! Please let us know what you find out. I have those JAM adapters on my coupe and it annoys me that my air filter interferes with the light on the underside of the hood. So I too would like to swap over to this style of adapter (which I wasn't aware of until you pointed them out).

It also makes it tough to use the stock hot air tube to the air cleaner.
