My 2 Litres Speed Model is fitted with 2x Zenith 36 UH carburetors since new.
Present I?ve got a jet?s setup of:
– Main : 90
– Compensator : 125
– Slow running : 55
Currently I?m running Newman?s cam?s.
I?m not very happy with setup mainly for two reasons:
– Running to reach during the summertime (hot air)
– At high revs, above 4000 rpm?s the car have some hesitation doing quickly more (I would like to reach 4500 rpm?s without hesitation)
Does anyone know or has a better experience than my ?
Does anyone know the setup of the former Lagonda 2 Litres Works cars using twin Zenith ?
Any advice or experience is highly appreciated.
Thank you very much

Unless you have modern type steel connecting rods at least and prefferably a modern counterweighted steel crank also, then you would be EXTREMELY ill advised to go more than 3750 rpm on a regular basis!!
Your standard rods have a thickness smaller than your little finger at the small end and this added to a “mean” piston speed of over 3500 feet per minute, and a peak of over 5800!!, you are asking for your engine to do a very good impersonation of a hand grenade!
I hope this elevates the need to re-jet your carburettors which must be working well for you to be able to get to 4000+ in the first place!
