I want to adapt my Silver Shadow to use an American carburetor and, if I can use the manifold from a Silver Spur on my Silver Shadow, that would make the process so much easier.

Has anyone done this before? Are the intakes compatible?

It seems that intakes DO cross over from year to year; so, in theory, I could get an '80s unit and put it on my car with a new Edelbrock carburetor if I can't get a decent set of original carbs for a fair price.

some time late 70 s early 80 s RR or Bentley used 4 barrel carb
You're thinking of the Solex carb which was, if memory serves, used only on the Turbo R in a few specific delivery markets.

This particular carb has a reputation as being hellishly difficult to deal with.
