Well, I've got the pipe work on etc and new filter kit.
There's no choke assembly on it
There are apparently 2 screws down on the bottom near the manifold that are the idle ones. I'm presuming 1 for each side of the carb?
These don't do much at all until it's already running but turning off and restarting it still won't idle.
There are also 2 screws right up just under the filter plate which I can't tell what they do but undoing them a little gets it to fire up.
There is a pip that comes out of the bottom at the engines front end of the carb that I think goes into the bottom of the filter. It sucks like a tornado!
So I'm a bit confused on which screws should be the ones I'm adjusting and now I've tinkered with all on something that was running on another kit car with just wire mesh as the filter and no bonnet clearance.
If I cover the end of this air sucking pipe the engine dies immediately.
Cheers

Don't think so as that one comes from the manifold and not the base of the carb - I think anyway.
It sucks too much and if it's blocked with my finger the thing stalls immediately.

On the biter side, it's finally finished enough to take to mot it once it runs better.
Just the side windows and a soft top to do and some tidying up
So happy. All this bad weather and no garage big enough has cost me over 7 months delay
