Fish carburettors, can they replace Strombergs?

Hi all
I was surfing various things and came across the Fish carb.

I remember this from when I worked on cars in the 60s and 70s.

I saw a few on grass track Minis but I did not work on them much.

Has anyone thought to try them in place of Strombergs?

I know I am weary of the over complication of Webbers, I would love a simple life.

Jon .....the webber carb is fool proof IF when set you leave them alone . People jump at the carbs when the points close up. Changing the timing or the valves needs adjusting or plugs are used up or 8) any thing changes in the engine .I set the carbs on my Super 7 4 years ago and they are fine . Look else where for performance loss .......webber is French for leave it alone ......and the fish carb was named after the people who sent money to buy them ....Ed
