I would be weary of buying this way though as i have been duped before on pistonheads.
At least with Ebay you can look at the sellers history and feedback whereas pistonheads doesnt offer this.
I once bought some bargain header pipes for a Subaru on there and i never received them. The seller dissappeared almost instantly! :(

I agree totally but pick them up in person.
I was lucky with my Dellorto's as they were nearly new jetted for the sprint and consecutive number tags on them.

No is the short answer. I have a list of what I have on my Sprint, which would be a decent starting place, but you really need to get it on the rollers.

My little girl Rebecca had an AX GT and would not listen when she asked if I thought it was a good idea to fit a pair of Webers as I said NO leave it alone, but she did fit them and entered a world of grief as several so called tuning firms had a go at them :cry: at one time the car reeked of fuel and was very difficult to drive.
I am so glad she does not have a poxy little French car now :D

You clearly have not had to work on one yet :wary: they are the work of the Devil, but drive okay.
Who but the French use 7 mm bolts ?
who but the French would bolt a seat in with long bolts that stick out underneath the car and go rusty so that they break when you try to remove them?
Who but the French would have the fuel pump earth wired in to the back lights?
Who but the French have brake bleed nipples 6mm diameter that ALWAYS break and ruin the caliper?
Working on a Triumph after a Peugeot is bliss.
However once you drive a Pug 205 GTI in anger, all is forgiven 8)

A little outfit known as Ford. Apparently they used them in various locations around something called an "Escort". No, I'd never heard of them either... :mrgreen:

Hey Mart,

I might shamelessly plagiarise this list, have just tried 50F9 idle jets and found them too rich...

Cheers,

Could someone running twin Dellorto 45s mind telling me what the jetting is on their car, for comparison, please? I'm running the following at the moment:

60 idle jets
7850.1 idle jet holders
7772.5 emulsion tubes
160 main jets
180 air correctors
42 pump jets
36mm chokes

TIming now set at 16 degrees BTDC.


Thanks in advance.

Andrew
