Trying out an AMAL Premier Carburetter, in real life.
"It appears that one of the most problematic things about keeping Brit Bikes running properly is the carburetors. The old Amals are prone to warpage and wear, not to mention fuel leakage, etc. Well, help is on the way! No, not from Mikuni or some other make, which will introduce problems of their own.

The Stayup floats are suitable for use with the CD Stromberg carburetters that used different floats to the usual CD design. These were used mostly by Triumph on the TR4 and 4A in the mid 60’s and also the early CD 150 on Triumph Vitesse and 2000 in the mid 60’s – early 70’s.
