I obtained twin SU's Carburettors from Ruairdh when the engine was being rebuilt I already had the fuel filter and all I need to do now is connect up the cables and pipework.

Bracket to support cable controls

Choke mechanism and throttle connected

Initially the carburettors leaked quite badly, the float needles one of which was quite badly worn, gaskets were missing at the tops of the float chambers and the main jets leaked fuel. A call to Burlen fuel systems resulted in all the parts being still available and shipped promptly. I also obtained a pair of fuel filters of Austin Healey air filters from another source which makes a tidy job of the installation.

Here is an Index page for the build
