Thanks, can’t see / detect any sign of an air leak and mounts are in reasonable condition.
Decided to investigate further so took the dashpots off both carbs. The springs are yellow which seems correct but the needles are both BAW. Only reference I can see on other threads is to BBT or BDQ. No idea what the difference is? I had a surprise when I looked at the jets as they are at very different heights, the front is just below the level, yet the front is quite above. Both holes seemed oval as opposed to round with the greatest dimension side to side.
I think the carbs came off VA9803/9980HE but can’t be sure. Even if they were, that car had covered almost 200,000km so they may have been changed along the way. Certainly would explain the wear on the jets. I can’t find any ID on the carbs that corresponds with any of the part numbers in the parts catalogue (or Rimmers website), so unsure as to what parts to order. The carb casing has AUD9 on the side and AUD2874 (rear) on top of the body with AUD2875 on the front one.
Can anyone assist in identifying these and recommending best needle / jet combination? Anything else recommended to change at the same time?
Also where else can I get these from, bearing in mind they need to send these to NZ.
Appreciate someone’s help!
EDIT: Just managed to get onto SUcarb.co.uk and found all these types. They also list a BCM needle used between BBT and BDQ
