You don't say what series you have but can I assume from the mention about
the thermo carbs that you must have an early either BN7 or BT7 fitted with
the temp. sensor and thermo enriching carb system? I will assume same. See

> Also I have seen manifolds painted engine green is this correct?
Yes. They prepainted as much of the engine assembly as possible before it
went into the car.
> What color vacumme tubes for thermo carbs supposed to be?
Just black plastic....I think. They probably would have been installed when
carbs were bolted on.
> The capillary tube for temp sensor goes onto the heater return pipe clips.
> What to do with all the extra length on this?
An extra couple of turns of extra length about 2 1/2 " diameter was coiled
at the back of the manifold area just before it went through the firewall.
