Dear Neil,

Here in the ole US of A, my B came with 7/16" BSF (SAE fine) threaded
holes for the air injectors into the head. I just got some short bolts of
the proper thread and took the old injectors off and put the bolts in.

BTW, my '70 is not subject to smog inspections anymore- and it passed
without an operating smog pump last time anyway!
