Wow that was quick! Any observations on the internal slide clearance or any concerns ?

The only thing I found was the slide has nominal wear on the diameter but of no concern as this will not upset the jetting in any way or the carbs overall performance. I have won races with a very badly worn ss in the past, they are quite forgiving. The corresponding slide bore has no wear at all. The needle has normal wear on the upper part where it bares inside the slide, this is completely normal and has no bearing on performance. The body of the carb and the float chamber have been vapour blasted and then painted with the correct shade of silver that was used in the day. the paint is as petrol proof as it can be. i have meticulously cleaned every part and very carefully cleaned and stoned all sealing faces. for your reference all external brass fittings and steal screws would have originally been dull zinc plated if you wanted it to be concourse. i dont know if you have adjustable float chamber mounts, the reason why i mention this is because float chamber height is fairly fussy. dimensions can be found on the web, there is lots of info. I have set the needle position in the position that it was given to me and set the air screw 2 and 3/4 out.

More than helpful and concise in your analysis. I will check on the web for float height information and once again, many thanks for your work.
