What "new" Tomos ?
The only Tomos with a sidemount carb is the Revival, and ain't no way no how are you EVER going to rig that setup to work on a Targa, not to mention that I cannot name one single forum member who owns a Revival.
New Targas ? hell no, they do not have the sidemount carb.
And that was the model in question we're discussing, he said "new ones", which, to me - means new model Targas.
As for "no droppin the engine" - lets see, on either side, with the engine bolted up you have a maximum clearance of about 3/4 the size of the carb body, which happens to be in a recessed well in the top of the transmission casing.
I suppose if you wanted to muscle a few parts and do some prying and yanking, you might be able to get it out the front or at an angle - but do you really wanna be telling a newcomer to try such a thing and risk busting something ?
As I recall you could pull some of the old Encarwi carbs that way, the DelLorto is shaped different, and it don't work so well....tho it might work,sure...I'd stick with what the manual calls for.
When I am tryin to assist someone who's skill level I don't know, I do try to give detailed directions that work with a bare minimum of skill, outlined in such a way as to cause a minimum of confusion, and using the safest possible route, both for the user, and the vehicle.
So dude, chill your jets and either offer useful advice, or shut the hell up, cause jumpin my case isn't gonna get ya anywhere, and is about as useful as a bicycle built for fish.
