+AD4-I was reading in Vizard's book on the weekend that one of the cheapest, and
+AD4-most beneficial mods you can do to the A-series engine is to REDUCE the
+AD4-size of the SU's shafts. He actually recommends reducing the width by
+AD4-about half, and even filing off the ends of the screws that hold the
+AD4-butterflys on (though you need to Loctitie them in place). He describes a
+AD4-few other changes too. Like rounding off the piston edge, and puting a
+AD4-knife edge on the butterfly.
+AD4-Now this is all from memory, I haven't got the book here, and I haven't
+AD4-tried it. I seem to recall him saying these mods were the equivalent of
+AD4-going up to the next size carb - not bad for a couple of hours with a
+AD4-I'd be interested to hear if anyone has tried this out, any problems they
+AD4-experienced, and whether they noticed a change in performance.

+AD4APg-What are the pros and cons of reaming the body and installing bigger
+AD4APg-shafts vs. rebushing the body and installing stock shafts?
