As usual my ideas for the pop are snowballing..... so I'm after some input on the carb setup that I could use please. I picked up a fresh 2l pinto a while back, rebuilt up so far as the head-It has been rebored and has a new bottom end. The rebuild wasn't finished, so the head was a blank canvas. Originally I planned to keep it simple and run the engine pretty much as a stock 2l partly because I had a standard cam as part of the deal, and liked the idea of running a single DCOE45 carb, and have a manifold to suit. I have all of the carb settings to make that setup work here in a Weber book. Here's where it starts to snowball... :-) I have been thinking of trying to get a bit more out the engine by putting a livelier cam in it and maybe skimming the head (an injection model head) but once I move away from standard settings Im a bit lost in terms of working out the sidedraught carb setup. Is there a way of working out the settings roughly to begin with? I realise that there will be quite a bit of tweaking to get it running perfectly, but I need a place to start from and thought I'd pick you clever peoples brains :-)
I have a DCOE48 in my garage, and wondered if that could work? Also, are the parts in a 45 interchangeable with a 48?
Thanks in advance!
