Re: Twin DRLA 36 carb problem ,guru help please

Stock dizzys work fine with twin carbs if you have the SVDA type and an anti pulse valve. Much nicer driveability and better fuel economy. Are all 4 pump jets squirting when you pump the throttles?

Forum update

I have updated the forum software - the forum may be a little slow whilst it rebuilds some indexes.

Please let me know if you have any troubles - screenshots would be handy.

Re: Tool Deals Thread

Screwfix have reduced a lot of their forge steel brand tools. Not the best quality but some things are really cheap

Re: Upgraded Fuel Tank

Early bay tanks aren't the right shape, as you can see from the photo above they have a lump there.

The correct one is approx 72 that fits perfectly and uses a longer 6 bolt fuel level sensor which is compatible with the gauge

Re: 21 WINDOW VS 15 WINDOW BUS

If you go for the 15 make sure it is really a 63 not a later Brazilian pretending to be an earlier bus (there are quite a few that are missing registered)
