Bigger hole for DVDA, smaller hole for SVDA and 009, the retarded timing requires more idle flow.

Wondering about this. The bigger hole lets more air thru but not really much more fuel, so with ...

Yes, I was (incorrectly) thinking of US cars when I wrote that. Do you have the full specs for that 1975 T2 carb? Would you mind posting it? I would like to refer to it before I modify this Bocar.

I've wondered how close WW LD43 is to the original LD43. On my car, my gearshift - repainted in WW LD43 looks more gray than the original glovebox and instrument panel mesh.

Any thoughts on this?
