Clip on the damper in an HIF carburettor
Keith Belcher with MGBGTV8 (Damask 1949) posted a note on the V8BB saying "two different mechanics have told me recently that these retaining clips are more trouble than they are worth." He sought fellow members' views. (Jun 18)

Nic Houslip contacted Burlen (who took over the SU carburettor activities some years ago) with the aim of getting some authoritative information on the "floral clip" so that is clear an illustrated V8NOTE could be produced to explain the matter with Burlen's information. 180605
