Dellorto Accelerator Pump Volume

PostPost by: jgrover » Mon Jul 06, 2020 8:16 am

I have been trying to re-set the squirt volume on my Sprint's Dellortos and have been reading through the various forums (fora?) and I am missing one piece of info. I note that it is 20 squirts and volume is either 7.5 or 8cc depending on vehicle, but is it 7.5/8cc per carb or per choke?

The specified output, such as 8cc in 20 full strokes, is per individual pump jet... ie, per throat. Twice that much per carb.
