Using Weber Carbs on Spridgets
Created: February 11, 2014
Carburation and Interchanges , What is the correct carburation that you should use on a Mini? Many options can be used, from SU, single, duel, and Weber.
FUEL - Leaded/unleaded fuel and the alternatives.
Created: September 29, 2000
The fuel situation seems to be worsening at a great pace these days. And as is exhibited by the questions that appear on the message board many folk are confused by what they can and can’t do, and what is best to do as far as race engines go. Many have posted (particularly from the States) that nothing need be done - just run on unleaded.
SU CARBS - Dashpot oil.
Created: September 29, 2000
This subject is a regular message-board poser. Many of us have touted our preferences and discoveries whilst playing about over the years. One problem with trying to deal with it on the message board is the sheer volume of information offered and available against the time available to post it.
SU Carbs - Quick reference needle selection
Created: September 08, 2000
Being an oft-voiced question on the message board, I thought I'd share it with you. Since there is already a very good source of starting points/applications for fixed needle carbs, this is for those floundering about in the wilderness that is the biased (swinging) needle example of the breed.
SU Carbs - HIF, a more finely honed instrument.

The basic SU design has maintained the same basic format since it's inception. But modern technology continually sweeps its ever-growing arm across all manufactured products and the SU was no exception.
SU CARBURETTORS - How SU Carburetors Work
Created: September 01, 2000
Even though the SU carburetter (carb) is a very basic yet precise instrument, some fundamental understanding on just how it works is needed to be able to deal with common problems and tuning. Following is as basic a description of what's going on that I can manage!
A Basic Guide to Electronic Fuel Injection for Minis
Created: February 16, 2000
If done properly, converting your Mini to EFI can have many benefits. The EFI Engine Control Unit (ECU) can control all aspects of the combustion of the air/fuel ratio under all conditions. For each and every load point throughout the rev range that the engine may experience, the EFI ECU can calculate the optimum timing and delivery of fuel as well as precisely when ignition will take place by supplying spark at exactly the right time in order to maximise power and torque.
Weber & SU Inlet Manifolds
Created: January 30, 2000
Weber and SU Intake manifolds are explained. Recent development has recently encompassed a detailed look at the manifolds available for side draught carbs. The steel inlet manifolds available have long been acclaimed the very best, out-performing all the alloy types by far.
Weber carb information and part no.
Created: January 30, 2000
One of the common problems where sidedraft carbs are involved is the choice of carb size in the first place and choke size in the second. The trick with carb sizing and choke selection is basically one of choosing a size which provides the engine with the airflow it needs without going over the top.
