I tossed all my Magazines and now I don't have ad with the Phone number to the SU carb guy. Would someone please look it up for me?

The EBay lists sets of carbs for about $3300 including manifold linkage etc. No singles. Same with British EBay.

You just need one?

What measurements or pictures would verify that this is the right critter for your needs?

Since I will be modifying all 4 to work with my application the exact model doesn't matter.  As long as it's a HD8 like yours appears to be I can use it.  Visually the HD6 appears the same but it's opening is 1&3/4 not 2 inches.

Would appear this is the droid you're looking for:

The throttle linkage and choke (??) seem to move fine.

The metering piston is smooth too.

That's all I know.  I never used it.  Just came off my TVR.

The PO made this little angle adaptor too.  I'm guessing you'll want to do your own thing.

Ya want it???
