The Alfa Romeo specialist whom I did engines with swore on Dell'ortos, cheaper
and better he used to say. Weber is just THE brand.B Dr. Gernot VonhoegenB

Dellorto is a good as a Weber in my view.B Did a bit more googling, I think an
IDF will be a better bet as it has more progression circuits and therefore
should be possible to set up to run not on WOT.B Suspect a 44IDF may be a
better bet and keep the style points? Otherwise it'll be torque tube to no
I do love the way the Van snorts on the pair of 40IDF's it's running. Not the
easiest thing from cold with no chokes but you can prime and start using the
pump jet circuit.B

I like the idea of having the problem of the carb air filter sticking out of
the bonnet.....
Has anyone fitted a 48IDF dellorto or "lookie-likee" instead of a 48IDA weber

Do they use similar jets to the IDA with respect to setting it up on day 1?B 
I know this is probably way way over carbed for a 100bhp engine BUT you know
me and my ideas!
