I have this 4 to 1 Carb. Conversion kit but it has
an Autolite 7014 Carburetor on her. This carb. was
used on early Ford trucks. I have her stripped from the
gas tank back right now as I'm replacing the rusted gas
tank with a like new one. Just replaced rear tire with new
Tread.Replacing rear brake line with steel braided line..
Also will rebuild Carb. while accessable. My 1982 Gl1100 Aspencade
is pretty minty and in great condition. Had to put my 1986 SEI Goldwing
Project on hold as I need to get this one in Top shape as she's a beauty.
Rode this Wing home 40 miles and she cruised at 85 mph with no
Sweat. She seemed to just purrrr down the highway. I've heard of the
Volkswagen conversion but in my opinion I feel the Autolite 7014 is
a better route to Go!!!. Have heard good and bad on these Conversions
but am pleased with my set-up. Hope this sheds some light for you....
