    I have one from my VW days and it is very good. I.ll see if it covers the DHLA too.

    Russ, it's not specific to Veedub set ups but is more of a "How to" as far as Dell'orto products are concerned.
    Quad carbed V8 would be the same principles as I described above...just may take longer to do! ;-)

    Just checked with Dellorto and they confirmed that the base setting is 2.5 turns out.
    Better wind mine back in then... curse that interweb.
    You were of course - right as usual Kev.

    Hi german8rcoupe,

    The priciples may be the same, but unless you are an octopus i guess trying to blip 4 carbs with one hand and adjust the mixture and idle screws with the other may prove a bit difficult.

    Seriously i was just curious as to how in depth the book went. Pesonally i have found a carb balancer and a colour tune have been the best way forward for me, just a bit long winded.

    Keep toying with the idea of changing them over for a 390 Holley to make life simpler and better fuel consuption.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    As I said at the time I thought it was unusual ..I do my best to be accurate ( sometimes described as pedantic or .... anal ) ,

    Carb balancer is a good idea, and you want more than one colour tune! The more the better really, one per choke is ideal. They turn up really cheap at autojumbles/bootfairs/ebay etc, so it's no necessarily costly.

    as for simpler, once they're set up, with a decent throttle linkage, you shouldn't need to mess about with them. I found when running DCOEs that the best money I ever spent was on the genuine weber linkage; it looks crap, but I never needed to touch the carbs again.

    Your right Avenger , I always hear people moaning about their carbs going out of tune , it's more likley to be slack linkages or electrical problems . If you use electronic ignition that halves the possible problems straightaway.
