What did you do about your heater core outlets, did you remove the heater for now?

That's a nice looking motor mount you made, simple. the best way.

It looks like you are using a remote power brake booster, does it work on both the front and back circuits, or just one circuit?

What is the part number for that remote booster?

I was just thinking that it would be nice to have the fenders fixed around where the fender mirrors attach, as it is right in your face there, the rest don't look that bad.

It's good that it is RHD, the SUs would be a problem if it was LHD. :)

Did you put PS fluid in the tops?

You can also use automatic trans. fluid.

While it is running, look down the throats of both of them, are the pistons lifting the same height, if not adjust them to where they both look the same.

Also make sure you have no vacuum leaks.

These are the screws you adjust the air flow with, it's best if you have a flow meter, but you can get them close enough by eye to sort things out, they both need to look the same at an idle.

See the piston in the throat, they both need to look the same while idling, this is mine shut off, it will be just slightly higher when idling.

These are the fuel mixture screws on the bottom, I would just turn them both out two and a half to three turns to start, the small upper screw is the idle screw once everything it set properly, at least it is on my SUs.

Don't give up on your SUs, they are way better than a Weber if adjusted properly, I can describe how to adjust them in detail, but it would be better done via email in real time, I tell you how to do something, and you do it and tell me what happened, if we set up a time I could be in front of the keyboard, email me, the address is below.

wired up enough to get started today yaay :thumbup:  runs like shit haha bit of tuning to do maybe switch from the su's to a 32/36
