I just helped a local owner of a new-old J-H install Lotus Spec-5 DHLA 45's  with 36mm chokes on his 907.   The only not-spec setting is bumping-up the idle jets from 50 to 55.    I think he'll tell you that the car runs great and is very driveable on the street.

I am the guy who was fortunate enough to have Tim bring 1111-18309 back to life after sitting in Phoenix for 15 years. I have put almost 1,000 miles on it in the past two weeks. No back fires and it pulls strong into high rpms. Tim is a genius with these engines IMHO. He had mine running smooth within minuets after first firing it up! Lots of prep before we turned the key though. We are very fortunate to have this forum. My car would not be running without the input from this forum and Tim's hands on knowledge and unselfish time spent in my garage. Safe and reliable travels to all. John FYI I've attached a current jpeg of the engine.
