Re: Slipper pads or not?

I tend to put a tiny bit of copper slip on them.

Re: Slipper pads or not?

You are correct. The slipper pads are missing and should be there.

The strombergs do work OK but I have to admit to preferring SUs myself. I fitted a pair of HS6s to my 1971 2000 and after some messing with needle choice, I did get it running well.

Cheers,
Mike.

What needles did you use? Trying the same set up on another 1971 2000. BCY perhaps?
Thanks

Re: Recommissioning of BEL

I think the manifold is correct for the HS4 carbs. The longer tract manifold is for the HS6s and have a different stud configuration. It will be worth looking at the book to identify how the cable is supposed to fit on HS4s.

Re: Gearbox differences

I think that the gearbox is the same, but the A type OD has different springs, (either number or strength or both). The OD can of course be moved from one to the other unless the OD is the problem with your existing 'box.
