Just for a change of scene in the weekend I decided to look at the carb situation.
I cleaned the up the HS6 carb and got half way through cleaning up the HS4 carb - both were completely caked in all manner of grime and oil - so they are both now clean enough to work on.
(my carb collection now includes 5 Imp Solex carbs, a pair of stromberg 125s and two SU carbs - I might set up my own carb museum!)
Unfortunately the standard plastic aircleaner is broken so I either need to find another one or use an aftermarket arrangement - any ideas on what to use as far as other aircleaners are best? From my Imp experience Ive been told the factory aircleaner is often the best to use
So as far as the carb itself are concerned the plan is to use the HS6 carb, it looks like from what I can see a straight swap - what will I need to do to run this carb instead of the HS4. Will it need a different needle/jet etc? Is there some way of calculating which jet etc should be used? Or is it best left till I can get the car on a rolling road and set up properly.
Ill have a look around on you tube and see if I can find some instruction on cleaning etc of these carbs
Given that I am using the air cleaner that was specific to the late-model Triumph Dolomite 13/1500 with single SU carburettor & dual-circuit brake master cylinder, my original air cleaner for the Triumph Toledo 13/1500 with single SU carburettor & single-circuit brake master cylinder is surplus to my needs.
