1933 RR Phantom II - Gurney Nutting Faux Cabriolet
Engine

The engine has a semi-expanding type carburetor which uses a large air cleaner. It's very different than the Pocher carb.

Building a carburetor of that type is described in my Semi-Expanding Carburetor Build Note. Click here to download details:

The engine also incorporates changes and additions outlined in my RR Detail Notes - Vol. 1. Click here to download details:

One other detail. Unlike Pocher kits, there is no accelerator pedal mounted off the gearbox. Rolls-Royce mounted the accelerator pedal on the chassis rail.
