Carburettor work

Carburettor work

Postby jota6297 » Sun Mar 13, 2016 9:02 am

I believe my 79 Jota is running rich. It fouled B8ES plugs going to Phillip Island and got approx 27 mpg. Apart from, I think, running rich it also has a problem with at least 2 out of 3 floats sticking occasionally. I want to take the carbs off and get them all set correctly, float heights etc then send the bike to be tuned. I have never done this before so the instructions need to be ignorance proof and must suit the set-up for a Stanco Jota not a Slater Jota. Where can I get a decent set of really simple instructions, let's assume the technician in this case is the same :D

Dellorto PHF tuneup guides are available on the web, but they will probably confuse you more than assist. The Laverda Twin & Triple Repair and Tune-up Guide (Tim Parker) has a more Laverda centric view of how to setup the PHF 32mm Dellorto's.

The Carbs if they are old will probably need a good clean up and refurbishment (usually the pumper jets need replacing). Your in Victoria so I would suggest talking to Greg Parish at The Dam Laverda Parts see link


Greg can provide all the parts you need to re-kit the carbs and if you need assistance to get the jetting right or indeed a full carbie rebuild these services are also available.

Cheers Crispin

PS. out of curiosity do you know what size main jets are in the Dells
