I now have carburetor indicator adapter kits in stock. These adapt to SU HD8 carburetors (Shadow I's and derivatives) and allow dial indicators to be used for balancing the carb piston lift.
carb balancers
individual carb balancer
carb balancers in situ

The whole kit is $75 including adapters, indicators, locking screws and extensions.
USA shipping is $8.00 and shipping to Australia and Europe is $23.00.
PayPal is easiest but I'll work with whatever you got!
HIF7 adapters for Shadow II's to be added soon!

You can contact me at dooskoop@hotmail.com

one set for me please Kelly (after you add the adapters for the Shadow II).

Is it best to combine shipping with the Motalita boss?
Thanks
Omar

Does anyone know if Kelly's HD8 adaptors will fit an S.U. HD6 as found on a Cloud 1 and Cloud II?

David, Jon Waples site states that the HD8 and HD6 caps are the same. If you can provide a depth measurement from the top of the bowl with the cap removed to the bottom of the piston, I can provide the proper indicator extensions.

Hi Kelly, as soon as the car is back from the auto-trans guy I will be able to measure the critical dimension. I'll let you know then.
Regards,
David.

I also received my adapter set from Kelly today.
Beautifully made and a perfect fit.

The only downside is that Belgian customs took 8 days to proceed the package (longer than it had to travel from the US to Belgium) and then relieved me from 40,- VAT and import tax.

Egads, Benoit! That's outrageous.
I'll never understand how customs works. About 1 out of 5 times I order something from Flying Spares, I get hit with a $50 customs fee. Sometimes with a week delay in New York, sometimes not.
I wish I could offer estimates on customs fees in my shipping quotes but my best guess is that everything is random.

David B., and others, I've received the measurements needed to offer HD6 kits for Early Cloud 1's and Cloud II's - and anything else with HD6's. They are now in stock.
