Does the fuel pipe that runs between your 2 carbs loop down and rest on the inlet manifold ? If it does it will be heating the fuel in there and will give the symptoms you describe. The answer is to slacken the unions and loop the pipe forward away from the heat.
You could also put a thermal...
Of the two companies that you have highlighted one will provide you with excellent service and advice, and the other will just take your money.
One will maybe go the extra mile and help you out if you are looking for a rare part.
One will maybe have more to chose from, but may be a bit more...
I fitted big air filters a couple of weeks ago and have had to custom grind needles to suit. I have gained a ton of 'seat of the pants horsepower', I cant believe the difference.
Beware fitting big filters will make the motor run very lean !

Good call Jim

You may not be out of the woods yet.
Gates Ethanol safe rubber hose is two layered, only the inner is E safe. The hose you used to extend your sender might be the same. I would put a sample in a jar of fuel and see if the outer layer breaks down. If it does the extension piece will fill your...

There are two small dents on the sharp front edge and pitting to the top surface, the...
