    Can anyone please confirm what the float level is for a 250SWB, the carbs fitted are a standard 40 DCL6, my thinking is 3mm - but not sure.

    Thanks

    Ok, I went to work especially for you Malcolm.....nah not really, had to go in for something else, but I looked it up for you anyway.

    It's 3 - 3.25 mm, but no mention of gasket, so assume without.

    While you're in there, if engine is standard the other specs are.....

    Chokes 27mm
    Mains 150
    Idles 60
    Pumps 60
    Pump stroke 3mm
    Centres 250
    Air corrector 180
    Needle 175
    Starter 140
    Emulsion F8 (20 holes)

    The 40 DCL's are made from smelted ash trays, and are really susceptible to over tightening of the base...so check the base is flat and that the gaskets are good.......

    Also ignition is 10-12 deg static and 40-42 at 3300 max advance. Points 15-17 thou

    Valve clearances cold

    6 thou inlet (on valve not cam)
    8 thou ex

    Cam timing.....

    IO 27 BTDC
    IC 65 ABDC

    EO 74 BBDC
    EC 16 ATDC

    Regards

    Phil
