Hi,
     Firstly, carbs are 274's (not 254). The original main jets would have been 80's, but with modern fuel, 85's would be better. The needle jets are .106 (mixture adjustment can be made by lifting or dropping the needles).

  Regards,
               Eddie.

opps , typo on the274, keyboard has a mind of its own .. thanks eddie wasn't 100% sure on what jets to order to start with , decided to try and get these carbs in order before trying more modern carbs , have picked up a set of cb175 carbs which might do the job but as said will try to get these 274 ones sorted first
