    I'm tinkering w/carb . It's a early style SU, was this a kit? or some wierd option? Has trouble w/ accelerating, so fattened up,nknow it loads up at idle. Got air/fuel down to 12.5. Can ideas? or carbs that work better? thanks

    If it is an SU carb, then it is something that was added as aftermarket.

    The stock turbo Corvairs used a Carter YH sidedraft carb.
