That said, maybe looking at how they mount the two barrel weber carbs to Harleys maybe be the path to follow.

Pict from Yahoo images, here's a weber on an Iron:

Yes you are correct on the Ironhead mounting.

Weber wold do nothing for my EFI project, its a carb.

Thanks again guys for the replies that were given, however as of yesterday I now have two XB9 TB's mounted on my Ironhead. One on the right and one on the left.
(yes I have provisions for Crank pos, TPS, Cam, MAF and Fuel PSI ect, and am considering traction control as well)

Now working on the twin cable apparatus.

Trying to get EVO/Buell dimensions to make the parts to adapt to early IH has proven to be the most difficult task, as I have no parts to reference.
