    Default I am repowering a 1968 Luhrs

    I am repowering a 1968 Luhrs with twin Crusader 270's but I am switching them from conventional to V-Drive. My problem is the carbs are tilted in the wrong direction. Does anyone know where I can find a Tilt/Shim plate opposite of the ones I have?

    I dont want to have a float problem later on.

    Mike if using a v-drive the motor sits very close to level and will not need a wedge plate. I have a 1976 Luhrs set up this way and have had others in the past with same.
