Hi Guys !
         The 30U I had ! Was running a 8v battery  and I had no issues with it ! I also bought a 8v Alternater from the states and left original wiring to be able to put back 6v generator if needed, also bought 8v quartz halogen globes to fit directly into original headlight sockets ,, all can be put back to original specs .

Thanks Chet sounds like topic that will cause stirr !
I am on holidays right now ,I don't have any programs with me to reduce the resolution of pics , perhaps when I get back after 7th Jan :)

On some carburetor 's. the screw is there to bypass air in chamber or throught of Carby don't think it's from outside as dust can be drawn in . Best to ask a Carby rebuilder to be sure
