Hello chaps.

My cob has refurbed carbs on a brand new rover v8 engine, and they need to be set up on a rolling road. Where's the best place to go to get this done?

I am in hampshire, in the newbury/basingstoke/reading triangle, so anywhere semi-close would be great, but I dont mind travelling for the best work.

Many thanks,
a

I took mine to Southern Carburrettors in South Wimbledon as it is nice and local to me and they did a brilliant job without using rolling road (though they have one if you want to book it) for 125. They have a website.

It will have SU's on it, I know nowt about them but they are OK and can be tuned by changing the needles.

Des Hammills book has several pages on setting them up.

Alex if you want to know how to set up twin or tripple SU's yourself just ask :) There is not many on this site who would know.
