No, I had used them for about 7 years. I might sell them to Jerry Costanzo, though.Ken Freese65 BJ8

Ouch!  New SUs ain't cheap, did you get a refund?

 Hello All

 Thanks to all who provided me with their thoughts on the problems
 getting my engine to run properly.  It has been really great to be
 able to get some thoughtful feedback on my trials and

 I have found one item with the carbs that I thought I should pass
 along should anyone else have the issue.  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.

 These carbs are not original carbs and obviously casting for the
 fork/screw lever too thick.  Going to do some filing on the piece
 this afternoon (or maybe take a dremel to it if laziness sets in).

 Still not confident this will help too much on the rich mixture or
 30 degree timing sweet spot, but we shall see – it certainly wont
