When I was on military assignment in the UK, there was a place in Salisbury, Burlen Fuel Systems, that had Weber conversion systems for BMW's. Mayber they can help, used to advertise in Classic & Sportcars magazine. Burlen Fuel Systems Ltd, Spitfire House, Castle Road, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP1 3SB
