I covered the Lee machine conversion of the Evolution 36 to make it a conventional layout with the needle valve assembly in the 'proper' position. I had a chance to get one of Jim's alternative conversions for the engine which basically makes up for the oversized venturis and the remote needle valve location while keeping the original layout of the engine.
This set up is very good on profile set ups and I have something similar on my Oriental. This comes complete with NVA for a reasonable $25.00 and is well worth the funds. Jim as always has a nice product at reasonable prices. If you use an evolution 60 he also makes nice Delran type with a slightly smaller opening if you need to improve fuel draw.

It would be nice if you'd put up contact info for Lee Machine. It's a resource some of our guys may want to take advantage of.
That's a very clean set up on the Evo.
