I personally don't recommend the 009 in a dual carb engine. They are
very hard to get set up and running properly. They seem to have problems
with hesitation, as they don't match the power band/ torque curves of
our engines.
If you want a good distributor for your dual carb engine, find a FI
distributor. they have a very good advance curve, AND have a vac.
advance for economy on the highway.
