btw, those carbs are not the "lifting diaphragm" type as suggested by several posts above: simply cracking the throttle lifts the round slides and allows in plenty of air for compression testing.... one CAN over-analyze all this stuff! Take care of slingers, ride her and enjoy the sweet harmonies of low compression engine, shaft drive and a genteel twin exhaust... 'tis mesmerizing!
Thanks for the encouraging words and sorry you don't have yours any longer. I guess I was lucky to happen on this one and now get that. I've always loved older machinery that's why I drive my Mk1 Cortina GT when not in my modern work truck. Whenever I need to go fast I'll jump on my r1100rsl to enjoy speed.
