Cool, looking forwards to seeing the prices & results mate. 

CAD file to follow, the unit price just for printing around a tenner each.

Went to put a new Weber twin choke on the Cav today, tried to remove the rocker cover to get at the last nut holding the carb on and someone has used a sealant instead of a gasket. Not only is it stuck firm but also will probably bend trying to get it free. Any ideas how to free it up?

hi ian

you should be able to get to the carb nuts with a smaller (or modified/sawn  spanner).they are a bit tight against the carb body.without taking rocker cover off.

the rocker cover has either been done like you say without a gasket but more likely just had a good coating of sealant on the gasket.the cork gaskets especially cheaper ones do seem to leak especially if the breathers are a bit blocked ! and need a smear of silicone generally.

id leave it for now unless you definately need it off.or if you fear bending it wait till you get a replacement.
