    Do’es anybody happen to know the standard needle size on the 3 ltr H6 Carbs as I?m having my car tuned and it would help if I have a starting point? I know the needls are 100 but at what taper.

    Best wishes


    John Woodward has answered the above and needles are listed on burlen’s site as LB2

    Many thanks John.

    The identification on our needles is SV. (LB 290/1 motors.)
    I don’t know what Su parts are like to source in the UK, however we have an exellent fellow in Sydney, Bill Blessington of Midel Pty Ltd, with extensive stocks of new parts.

    Hi Mark. Many thanks for that I was trying to tease out of those that know if there is an alternative set of needles to make the carb richer or if needed poorer but after off line discussions it would seem the needle you suggested is the correct one for these carb and to have the carb rich or poor is set within the tuning procedure. Yes we have a company here in the UK for SU bits for you information I have enclosed a link to the site with drawings of the carbs and parts in question.
