I am getting ready to have my Dellorto carbs rebuilt for my 2054cc enigine. I just want to make sure I am using the correct size for this engine. I bought these carbs used and they were set up for a 1915cc engine. Please let me know what would be the best!
Thanks,

Jeff

if I am using Dell 40's and my venturi is 34mm, should my main jet be 150? Or is that going to be to small?

150 main should get you in the ballpark.

Needle and seat should be at least a 200.
