Wales 2014 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 SW Corris Grey

Sorry but to far away to help. Woreked on SU cards for may years on my Triumphs - 2500tc, spitfires, Dolomite Sprint & 1850, Minis.
Check for induction leak to the butterfly the pivot point which can wear
Ethanol in hippy compliant petrol can cause havoc with the jets and needles make sure they not gummed up and stated to wear
Ethanol fuel also eats away at old fuel line - any fule lines before approx 1999 ish would be an issue

SU carbs otherwise should not give any issues - I assume you know that engine oil should be used in the plunger (sorry to ask this one)

What sort of problems are you experiencing? It is not a Defender, it is a One_Ten
