Just fitted the twins on the Dirty D

On the first start up the single carb was way too small for the new engine combo, my intention was to run in on the single Stromberg but it's way too small for the task.
So the on goes the X2 inlet & twin
Strombergs & all of a sudden it's idling much smoother & just needs some fine tuning now.

Yes mate that's correct, 179 X2 = 2×149 carbys & 186 x2 = 2×161 carbys.
My setup has a pair of 186 carbys.

Thanks Doc, your posts give me great inspiration to get my car going sooner rather than later. We have had a few set backs but we're back on track. Keep up the good work. Love it.

Yeah I forgot to mention that I'm waiting for my cousin to 2k my air cleaner.
At the momoment she seems to a vacuum leak preventing the auto to shift into top gear but otherwise she takes off nicely.
