i will be using twin 40 dcnf's on my 2 ltr type 4 (dare to be different..)
how did you get round the fuel surge and starve problem on corners or are they from gene berg???

if so can you send me a more detailed picture...

my mate has a set on his beach buggy (1641 type 1) and they run great but splutter a little in tight bends
(cheaper than idf's to buy in the uk as are off a late MG and everyone is scared about there cornering problem :p )

I ran nearly stock 40DCNF's and stock 42DCNF's with no problems in the turns...I now have GBE 42 specials, but have yet to use them.

I cannot remember what trick parts were in the otherwise stockers...I'll have to pick my Dad's brain.

Alright...it's been way too long. Sorry. The 40DCNF's had GBE ball float-valves.

Got the new front suspension under my project `69:


Avis adjustable powdercoated beam
CB drop spindles and disc brakes
Stock height KYB GR2's
2-1/2" wider than stock CCC early style(`66/`67-down) fenders
Rossi headlights
8mm spacers
modified dust caps
modified speedometer cable
16x6" ET50 wheels with 205/55's

Only substancial difference is in the picture it's got 15x5.5" ET40 rims with 195/60's - which actually have 3.65mm more frontspace than the 16x6's.
