I think you will be close with Lotus (emission) Spec 9 to get it running and can tweak from there. I would probably start with a 7850.2 idle jet holder and a 58 or 60 idle jet. You won't have any problem with fuel atomization in 38mm chokes at high RPM.

From the Dave Andrews website: http://members.aol.com/dvandrews/dellorto.htm the Main Emulsion tube should be a 7772.5. This should keep you in the main jet circuit while your on the track.

Adjust main jets maybe up to 180?? for your preferred CO level probably around 4 to 5%. A onboard CO meter would be an immense help in tuning so you can check while on the power at speed.

good luck, Kurt
