No luck in the archives [probably not using the right search parameters].
Not sure if the carbs on the car are Midel carbs but the car only came with the carbs on the car so hopefully I can make some adjustments and get it running like a top.

You may recall I could not get the jet to come up to the level of the cab bridge – it seemed to hang up 1.6mm low. Yesterday I discovered the problem – the lever that has the jet fork on one end and the mixture screw on the other is too thick. Being too thick it hits the mixture screw lobe piece, not allowing the forks to rise, which holds the jets 1.6mm-1.5mm low.
