I know you can do the intake first, do all your plumbing underneath and then put the air flow meter and CIS distributor on later. Not sure if the hole thing can be done as an assembly.Well, I thought I took enough pictures during disassembly to make reassembly a bit easier... I was wrong!
Although I have more than enough pictures they tell me nothing about the order of reassembly. I'm in the process of finalizing the intake to the head and I'm wondering if I should leave the air intake assembly off until after I route all the air tubes and perhaps even the injectors.
It looks like I can get to the two little nipples on the throttle and I could probably even tighten the strap that holds the boot on the throttle after I install the air intake assembly. Is it ok to leave the installation of the air intake assembly to after I install all the stuff that routs underneath it? Yes/No?

Thank you for those pictures... they were just what I needed to verify my thoughts on where the tube connects.hi,
don’t know if this helps , my UK 380sl
i have attached a couple of pics of my dirty engine!! I’m no computer whizz so no red arrows for me but blue screwdrivers
The hose halfway down the manifold as shown in your picture top arrow goes to the bottom of the 3 connections from what I’m looking at, there are 2 smaller bore hoses above and this one goes underneath
hope it helps... sorry it’s grubby my resto starts when we move!!!
Not sure whats wrong but it doesn't look right. I think tightening should be clockwise and there should not be a large bump digging in to the boot. Also the bent tab at the end should not be there or possibly be facing into the outer band.
Yes, I wish I saw it before I connected it wrong... but it did work.
I plated them last year and the bushings were removable... not so with the rubber in this years crop of brackets, so I'll need to dunk them rubber and all.I saw you already plated the throttle brackets at the back of the engine, it seems like the plastic bushes made it through the process.
