those are for the single sidedraft weber or Mikunis carbs.
However some people do not like them cause the inner cylinders will be richer than the outers.
I dont know this for sure cause i havent tried it.
But Lynx manifolds has a similer one that is a X over type which gives the correct mixture to all cylinder.
webercarbsdirect has these on there site and I think they explain it but was like 300$(not sure). These are the ones to get if possible.
The Cannon are more common and I wouldnt pay more than 20-50$ myself.
I persoanlly have 3 new sets of sidedrafts/ manifolds in my house. I wait for baby forces sell/wife makes them get ride of 510 and then parts are cheap. Let them that the HIT on new prices.

If you can get it cheap and have onesidedraft around I would try it.Maybe someone on here has tried it and can tell you was it worth it. Say compared to a downdraft Weber DGV.
