Are there any tips or links on the best way to tune a Weber Carburetor?

Ignore the purists who demand that you put SUs on your car. They think the HS4 was designed for the MGB, actually, its design goes back to 1904.

Also, be aware that any carb can develop air leaks due to worn parts. HS4s are just as bad for air leaks and worn parts as any other carb.

A well tuned Weber DGE 32/36 carb in good condition is very economical and will give you an extra jump when you want it due to its 2-stage design. I drove mine years getting a consistent 27 mpg.
