Looking For Carb' Help In South London...

PostPost by: davidcroft » Wed Mar 31, 2004 3:41 pm

Does anyone know somewhere / how i can get the webbers tuned on my plus 2?

The car has been serviced recently by the guys at Morland Jones, and they are happy to have a look at the carbs again (usually they get it running really sweet), but it's an absolute nightmare getting the car to and from them.

I live in Dulwich, SE London, so is there somewhere/someone nearer that can twiddle my screws for me, or am I doomed to the 90 minute crosstown slog (which usually fouls the plugs by the time I get home anyway)

Do not know of anywhere my self as I do not live round those parts. I would suggest you buy a copy of Retro Car and flick through the adds in the back, there are usually a number of rolling road / carb centres in there.

How about Southern Carburettors in Wimbledon.
Not used them except for parts (for which they are v good)
But they definitely have a rolling road and know their onions.

I'm based in Oval, South London and have a +2 as well. I also make the familiar slog over or occasional breakdown recovery to Morland Jones and return on the tube. My car's in at the moment for a rather expensive sounding engine failure

Southern Carbs have an excellent reputation.
You might try www.sanspeed.co.uk.
They're based in Bexleyheath and a little cheaper than Southern Carbs. I've never used them personally though.
