syncronizing dellorto carbs S2.2

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


After doing some tests with ignition timing and finding out that a bit more advance (12° at idle and about 32° at 3000rpm) gave the car far better torque figures in the lower revs, I decided today to check the carbs syncronisation .


Some time ago I posted my homebuilt very cheap but very precise and sensitive 4 column manometer.

For those interested, I made a  phone video, just to show you how it is working.


In the beginning of the video , I already synced the dellorto carbs, wich is a matter of minutes to do , if everything on the engine is OK. ( carbs ok, no vacuumleaks etc....)

After that you can see what happens , when turning  very little at the carbs syncronising screws.


Sorry for the bad quality, but filming with a phone , while doing other stuff is a bit difficult
