Hello Michael


The carburettors originally installed to the 100 four-cylinder engines fitted with the Le Mans kit were H6, not HS6 and according to my SU book the needles are OA6 for rich, OA7 for standard and OA8 for weak.


The piston spring should be red in colour.

I have been experiencing less than stellar performance with my 100 Lemans and need to go back to basics.


What is the wisdom (I don't ask for consensus!) on appropriate needles for the carbs (HS6) and what spark plugs are folks favoring these days? 


Also what tappets clearances are folks used for a DW AL head in the "fast road" or stage 2 tune with DW tubular headers?  If it matters I have installed a Mallory MagLite distributor.


Best--Michael Oritt
