I finally decided to get my Dellorto carbs sorted out. Attached are the before and after views.

Work carried out by Paul Hollidge at http://www.weber-carbs.co.uk

Click on photo to enlarge. Can you tell which one is the before shot? :shock:

There probably grimey but Pete's camera skills just made them look like that!

There is something nice or more like art about some of the bits like carbs etc

When I did some photo-work for Sounds magazine, back in the 70's, a drummer gave me some pills because I was complaining of a headache. They tell me that the photos were superb but I remember nothing and had to take a week off from my day job to recover. I have been somewhat reluctant to take non-prescription medication since then. :roll:
