Despite its age, the Ford ‘Essex’ 3-litre V6 is still a popular and potent engine for classic Fords, kitcars and rods alike.

Unfortunately, age also brings with it the problem of OEM parts becoming NLA; one such part is the carburettor ‘W’ plate which is essential to ensure the fuel/air mixture is evenly distributed to all six cylinders.

For quite some time owners have had little option but to source second-hand ‘W’ plates. However, Webcon has now come to the rescue with a faithful reproduction of the original part.

The Webcon ‘W’ plate has the benefit of being made from modern materials which ensure far superior heat insulation and there is the additional advantage of having been manufactured to Webcon’s legendary quality standards.

The Webcon ‘W’ plate is available as part number 9990388200 and retails at £113.18 inc VAT.
