I am in the middle of a Comet rebuild, and have a few questions regarding carburation. My present unit has an AMAL Concentric MK2 28mm. I was hoping to install an AMAL 10TT9 1/16 but was wondering if I might be starving it with the slight reduction in volume? Also, I am not sure the TT will fit under the tank, anyone with experience mounting the 10TT9 with 7 degree bowl on the front pot of a Vincent?

Lastly, if anyone has a AMAL 229 in decent condition for sale, I would be apt to return to the original set-up.
Any advise is greatly appreciated.

The original inlet port was 1/8" and the AMAL I am thinking of using is 1/16". I am not sure of what the adverse affects may be, but I also do not want to reduce my power if I am reducing fuel flow?
