Hi

I m interested in the fitting of Keith's Hypo Jets etc to my standard big valve with DCOE 151's.
Is a kit available yet and from where.
Regards

His online shop is:

There is no kit you will need to pick out the bit you want, visit sidedraft central yahoo group if you need help. You'll need 4x Hypo jets, then 4x O6 tubes and selection of main jets and air corrector (available else ware). If you read the info on each idle jet it will tell you the equivalent standard jet size.

With rubbish US fuels I had to go up a size on the idle jets to remove a transition stumble. You may be able to get away in the UK as suspect the fuel is a bit better, and could probably be made up with adjusting the O6 tubes (I have the older nonadjustable style so couldn't try this.)

Keith Franck seems to be a really decent person. I expect if you join his group sidedraft central he will help you find the best solution.
