Setting up SU HIF 44 carb

Post by Spickb » Sat Jul 25, 2020 10:11 pm

Wonder if anyone can help with this one. I have a 1973 ex California mk3 1275 midget. All the emission bits have been removed. I have fitted an extractor exhaust manifold and a HIF 44 carb. The problem is getting the engine to run - it will start but runs very rough and not idle. The carb is clean and looks to be in good condition. It is 2nd hand And I don’t know what engine it came from.
I’m pretty sure there is no air leak at the manifold.
Any idea why it won’t run - does the carb needle need changing perhaps.
Any thoughts welcome. Thank you
