I just happen to have my factory Austin Marina USA version parts catalog
in front of me! It takes the same exact manifold that a B takes.
CAM1313. Intake/Exhaust all together. They are fully interchangeable on
a B. Some cars were fitted with the same Zenith Stromberg carb from a B.
Some were fitted with H1F6 type carb. The bolt up to the manifold was
the same. I am sure the jetting on the zenith was the same as the B or
at the least the center jet could be traded out for the B specd version.
