Identifying Ram pipes

I've had two of these little guys since the year dot; I found them in a drawer this morning and decided to determine which car they came from. I'm pretty certain it's from an SU-fitted engine, but they don't line up with my spare SU carbs at all (although I do have gaskets that match the mounting holes.)

If I've measured the dimensions correctly (and I hate mixing metric and Imperial, but needs must in this case) then the hole through the middle is 1 5/8 inches, and the mounting holes are 6.5cm centre to centre. Any idea of what they're off, or how I can find out through application charts or measurements?

Probably... just thinking out loud before bracing the weather towards the garage... bucketing down here as usual. I do have gaskets that match them, but so far not carbs, so it must be something related to a car I've owned before - I suspect the gaskets are left over from a complete engine set.

Not far off, Pete - same shape of mounting. I don't seem to have a carb that fits, though, despite having quite a few SUs in the garage - I'm going to start another thread to help identify those too, just to pass the time on a rainy day during Lockdown.
