Hi Peter

I'm having HD car trouble myself so have been studying every manual I can get my hands on.  Even so, not sure if I can help. 

One question. When you say fuel is leaking from the choke, is that from the jet on the inside of the carb at the throat, or from the bottom of the carb body itself?

I'm thinking of the HD's without the external automatic enrichment device.

> Anyone familiar with SU HD carbs? I'm using a HD6 (one of a spare pair form my Daimler 2.5 litre V8) on my Shorrock supercharged MG TC motor. I have put a  new kit, including jet/diaphragm in it. I now have the motor running, but I have fuel dripping out of the carb choke when it's not running. The float level is OK and the needle valve is operating. I'm familiar with H type carbs, but not these. Any ideas?
