Re: Dellorto jet sizes

If the bus is bogging as you describe, then it could be that one or more of the idle jets is blocked. First renew all fuel lines as blocking is usually caused by ethanol in fuel rotting the lining of traditional Chinese fuel hose (often says R9 on the side but is fake). Check your tank and in line ...

Re: Dellorto jet sizes

OK thanks. The backfiring only occurred when I put in 98 petrol. It hadn't happened before and happened less and less as I diluted the mix back to 95. Hasn't happened since. Exhaust nuts weren't really loose but I was able to tighten most of them a little. I couldn't see signs of blowing. Having sai...

Re: Dellorto jet sizes

So....DRLA 40s. Centuries are 30s. I've put back the 122 mains as I found some loose nuts on exhaust....not very loose though but Ive nipped them all up now.

According to charts I've found DRLA 40s should have 34 venturis and bigger main jets.....

Re: Dellorto jet sizes

You need to know what size Venturis you've got to determine what size jets are needed. If you can see what size vents (not easy when carbs are fitted in a bus)then if you tell me the engine spec I'll let you know what size idles and mains are needed. Nige OK thanks Nige. I now worked out what the v...

Re: Dellorto jet sizes

Bus ran really well all week and we're home now. Engine starting to loosen up a bit I feel. I'd expect it to slow up the long French (or English) hills on the motorways. So the issue is......when I suddenly turn a corner on a small French road through a lovely vineyard area and am suddenly confronte...

Dellorto jet sizes

Hi Guys. In France...... Bus goes great on motorways towing Puck but slows uphill. On little roads if I encounter a really steep hill, with or without caravan, bus struggles to get up it. I think it's a fuel issue. Yesterday I tried 98 octane but that resulted in lots of backfiring on overrun, when ...

You never know!

It must be a fault/design flaw with the rear rubbers I think

Looks good Steve. Is it just fitted on the left edge of the quarter light ? Yes, just trailing edge. The rubbers didn't make much contact with the glass. I put some 2" masking tape over to try to ascertain what the cause was and that worked but looked ugly, obviously :lol: This doesn't notice as al...

Re: Dormobile style curved front roof rack ***SOLD ***

Yes. I've got a couple of early ones available cheap and I make my current "curvy" design to order. I have a few folks waiting at the moment and its not a very quick process as I make them as and when I have time and when the mood takes me :) There's another thread with more photos https://www.ssvc....
