    Hi All, I've got a Dellorto DLRA40 carb for sale from a Formula Vee. I'd bought it as I'd heard it might help my Vee go faster than a Weber, but I've sold the car before having a chance to try it. I'm not 100% sure on the exact spec of the carb, I'll upload some pics later. I paid £150 for...

    Guys, Ok - installed a pair of Dellorto 40 DRLA carbs with one side manifold bossed. Got the thing idling well (after a rough "by ear" balance) with good response when booting the pedal stationary. However, big performance issue when driving it - seems ok in 1st if i'm not too heavy on the...

    Hi people :) I've just found a original italy made DHLA 48 carb that we have had for ages, it seems good (moves freely etc) so wondering how much would these roughly sell for? Also if they are any good for a turbo set up? Any other information about this type of carb would be of help seeing as...

    What I cant understand with this carb deal is why you can run a single port 40mm weber carb without a choke and yet if you run two 40mm twin chokes you need to go right down to have chokes of 28mm . Additional a weber guide suggests the same size. When I spoke to Dellorto they insisted a 28mm...

    Hi all, I need a tune up so would like to find a VW Aircooled friendly rolling road in or around Hertfordshire. I also wondered if it is worth having a sticky list of counties/areas and VW friendly rolling roads? TIA

    Hi guys, I have a twin choke DRLA on my 1641cc twin-port and have been advised to change over to twin carb's by my mechanic as he thinks it's a better setup. WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS? Some say my carb is better suited to to a bigger motor. It's grunty as fook, but pulling off in 1st does feel...
