Main jet 400, throttle slide 3, pilot jet 30, needle .106 at centre slot. I have recently bought a new 389 for my '59 Model 31 and due to it running too rich (today's crap fuel they call petrol!) have reduced the Pilot to 20 and increased to slide to 3.5 which I think now is too much, Surrey Cycles suggested trying dropping the needle to slot 2 instead.

Hello Laurence,
join the club to have full access at this forum, and to get all kinds of parts from AMOC Parts. For instance, AMAL carbs are cheaper from AMOC than elsewhere...
Kind regards.

I would also renew the petrol pipes. Ethanol in petrol can cause them to swell and restrict fuel flow. The club sell ethanol proof petrol pipe.
