Gluehand, yes the needle does seem to close properly.

brokenenglish, I didn't understand what you meant about angled fuel nipple until I just saw pictures in a 1962 engine test. My spraybar is straight, so maybe its not the correct one. The needle looks correct. The spray holes are aligned as you suggested but there are no fibre washers, so maybe there is an air leak. It certainly does not draw fuel well when choking. I have to keep the tank elevated to keep the air out of the fuel line. Maybe I'll make some thin washers from rubber. If its too thick the spray holes will not be central in the venturi.
