I'll begin by stating that I don't know the adapter is even British!
But the quality indicates it may be; the odd angle adds to that impression, for me.

Specifications are as follows:

LARGE PORT DIAMETER: ~45MM
STUD SIZE: 8MM
STUD SPACING: ~85 X ~52MM
MOUNT FACE: ~105 X ~70MM

SMALL PORT DIAMETER: ~30MM
BOLT HOLE SIZE: ~8MM (CLEAR)
BOLT SPACING: ~92MM
MOUNT FACE: ~110 X 47MM

INCLUDED ANGLE: ~20 DEGREES
WEIGHT AS SHOWN: ~588 GRAMS

Thanks for your interest and comments! Warren

Pretty near impossible without any markings unless someone has one. Looks like a two barrel single carb adaptor to, whatever. Definitely angle head, V or slant in line. ?? PJ

Looks like a VW air-cooled dual-port to Weber DCNF, or similar. Would need two to be of any use. No idea of make.

I would think a safe bet is it's for a VW. Two duel throat carbs were a popular conversion on hopped up VW engines. Here's another one from another manufacture. Naturally two are needed. From what I remember, most of that old after market VW stuff had no markings. Some even had angle adapters to level carbs. PJ
