Thanks for the info, Jim.  Don't know if I ever
thanked you a few years back, but you diagnosed my
electrical problem when I was putting everything back
together after my rebuild.  I'm going to stop pricing
weber rebuild kits and start scouring the web for a
dual carb setup (the wiring is completely gutted for
FI).  Already have some leads on the SAMBA site. 
Thanks again.
