I don't know if this is usefull or not.
I contacted Eurocarb Ltd to find out if my carbs were correct for the 2.2 and received the following.
 
R5326 carbs. had the following jetting originally:
 
36mm chokes
158 mains
58 idles
60 pumps
7772.8 emulsions
230 airs
7850.9 idle emulsions
They were O.E. on Lotus Talbot 2.2 engines.
 
The E signifies that it has 6 progression holes, exclusive to Lotus.
 
eurocarb ltd.
 
However now there seems to be a little trouble with the engine running to lean.  The solution seems to be at the fuel tank where when you plug off the excess return everything seems to straighten itself out.
I am using the stock origional pump and 45's.
Anybody have any comments about this.
Thanks a bunch,
