good article on SU's


Recommended Posts


just finnished converting my 260 to round tops, still need some stuff, but I found this which gives a real good feel for the carb, maybe should go in tech articles. Not sure if its already here, but thought it might help anyone messing with the carbs.

On the unleaded fuel issue, I have the feeling that the author doesn't live in North America.

The cars that were sold in the U.S., (and I think Canada...) after 1975 came from the factory with a catalitic converter, and thus had the hardened intake seats installed. (Leaded gas plugs converters in only a few thousand miles of operation.)

Leaded gasoline has not been legal for street use in the U.S. for nearly 20 years.

glad yas liked the article. I finnished the carb conversion on the cali car and had a drive of her today. Much much better than the flat tops, in terms of driveability, performance marginal, hopefully some tuning she'll get better. Also with the oil issue, I heard that auto trans fluid, will work good too.
