wheels and carb needles

Postby redracerray » Sun Jul 29, 2018 7:21 pm

Does anyone know what year BMC changed from riveted to welded wheels? I'm rebuilding my SU H-1 (1 1/8) carbs. The kit came with standard (GG) needles. Rich
(EB) needles are available. Will the EB needles increase performance? Thanks

Unless you have worked on the intake or exhaust to increase the airflow then adding rich needles will not do anything.
Same airflow but more fuel will not make more power
