02 May, 2018
Evidently written by an authority on the subject, it deals with just about every aspect of tuning these carburettors for performance and/or economy. Written in everyday terminology an amateur mechanic can follow it. I found it more than coped with my lack of expertise. I have two vehicles that are fitted with the early model SU and it was a real help in setting them up. Not light reading but well worth making the effort to understand it.
