Hi David,

If you are ordering new needles with your kits, be sure to give Joe  
the number on your existing needles (You'll need a magnifying glass).  
The needles he recommended for my 71 3500s were too lean (fat), so I  
kept the old ones in until I can get new ones that match, or a  
thinner set. I have three sets of needles from three different sets  
of SU carbs, two 1970 and one 1971, and all of them were different  
sizes. After rebuilding mine, I still have some hesitation starting  
off, which is cured by choking slightly (dropping the needle down in  
the jet, enriching the mixture) so I'm planning on trying a thinner  
needle next.
