Probably too far for you - my go to guy is Stef at http://www.macvw.co.uk/  Its really worth finding someone who knows there stuff as it will save you an age - plus someone that has a rolling road.  Stef actually taught me how to set my carbs up.   I also found getting a good book also helped me - I have Dells so used the Superperformance book.   Took a while to get my head around some of the explanations but worth doing as it all seemed to suddenly become clear and understandable.   It is an art stetting them properly so finding someone good was the best thing I ever did

with an airflow meter to balance the flow you can get them running evenly and use the mixture screw position as a tell tale on jetting. were the carbs off a vw or are the new.

have a read on weber pages about the basic settings and fine tuning of them.

Hi Snoopy

Hope you and yours are well?

I believe they were new when the engine was rebuilt, yes I have read the Weber page and I have to say seems pretty straight forward and I have a Air Flow Meter ordered.

Was just putting a request out there case anybody in the know wanted some beer money?

Hopefully see you at the MBC soon as we can have get together's?

Dave

The pub will reopen in the not to distant future hopefully or it will be a social distancing meet in the car park.
