    As I indicated earlier, I took my carbs off and have been going through the linkage bits to ensure everything is working properly. Besides discovering that my carb heat tube was completely plugged I...

    Not sure how one would bond a weight to the plastic float in that environment, but its worth thinking about.

    I like the redrilling idea, but I don't think the "towers" would need trimming down...

    Yeah perhaps, but the new valves behave just like the old ones I took out. I couldn't get the long legged cap dialed in with the old tall valve body either.

    I just find it interesting that to get...

    Well, I'm back at setting the floats and have fitted them with some new valves I ordered. I'm still using the glass jar setup, but I've eliminated the water pump arrangement and have a small funnel...

    I agree with you that it does get worse with worn or dry bushings (I think I said that), but I'm guessing many folks here also set their idle RPM higher than they did at the factory. If you're...

    I still believe the problem is that the manifold vacuum is helping hold the butterflies closed at idle, its just the nature of the design. The carbs have a mechanical advantage over your foot so it...

    I was thinking lower than that, more in the 500 - 600 rpm range. Not sure what the manual says is correct but I don't think there's any harm from idling "too" low.

    So I created this apparatus to help set the floats accurately and now I have even more questions.

    To achieve a gas (water) height 23mm from the inside of the lid the float is nearly contacting...

    Yeah I had read that one, that's where I got the idea for the clear bottle, which I think is a genius idea BTW!

    Thanks for ferreting out those numbers, until I hear otherwise I'm using them for my...

    I have a 72 with 3 screw SU's and they have the long and short arms in the float bowl lids. Long in front carb, short in rear.

    I intend to set the floats on my bench top by setting the lid with...

    It's understood that the mechanical linkage isn't ideal, but I can't believe they would have sold the cars new with the linkage as jerk inducing as I've experienced or a lot of people wouldn't have...

    It held up really well in my Jag and it appears to really bond well in the Datsun too. I thin it with a little water so it's not too thick and that allows the grain of the vinyl to show through. Its...

    I removed the booster pipe and plugged the intake port and it ran better, but the brakes were harder to use. I'm guessing it has a small leak in the diaphragm.
