Just a warning from the previous comment

You can't just put another SU carb on it - not if you don't want to burn a piston or waste a lot of gas

You need to set the carb up to your engine on a rolling road
SU carbs use a superb metering system using a tapered needle in a jet - there are about a thousand different shaped needles,

On my 1430 mini I changed the intake manifold - just the intake manifold - that made enough difference to melt a hole in a piston

Any carb fitted to a non standard engine will need to be properly set up on a rolling road
