thanks Brett - I haven't got to the point of tuning them yet...just want to get it running first. You know I spoke to a guy at Delta and he told me that the dellortos need to have a little "give" in them when reattached, ie not to overtighten them so as to squash the large o rings. Well mine is super tight so i bought some new o rings and will install this weekend. Is this right though regarding a little give? He said that you should be able to hold the carbs from ubnderneath and there should be a little play ?

Also Dell's most often do not use a distributor that has a working vacuum advance, if yours does I'd plug that off as well.

Wasn't sure what you meant about this bit...still learning...i have the standard Lucas distributor
