Good man Chew! It's so useful when people bother to tell others what the result has been after all that work. You may have to rejet the carb a little for the bigger B & Ps. I use 30 PICT - 2 carbs on 1600 sp engines with a 120 main and 55 pilot. Brosol H30/31 is a good replacement despite all the bowlocks you may read on the web - that's because people confuse these good Brosol carbs with the appalling Bocar carbs!
