Old school tuning which means crappy old school grp A carbs. I have heard of some bad dealings from mates who have been into 5's for years.

Nick

The carb already has a enlarged venturi, I never checked the jets but it was spot on when I put it on the rollers. might be worth having a look first so you know what you've got.

there maybe someone local with experience and the kit need to set these up and would save you alot of money

sounds like you just need a afr and det check and maybe tweak a jet or 2 and the timing if needed

best bet is to buy a decent afr kit and start from there, as mark says go back to standard venturi then back to standard main jet then work your way through the carb eg 2nd stage,air corrector and if needed a bigger needle valve.

its all trial and error fella i will be the first to say that i knew nothing about these cars a couple of years ago but it comes with time and help from fellow members like mark above is priceless :)
