Dellorto Service/Rebuild - NV Size?

Just sent a pair of Dellorto's off to get vapor blasted and now I'm preparing to service and rebuild them when I get them back so went to order a Service kit from palmside and realised I have no idea what size needle valves to get.

They're going on a 1600 Kent (Escort 1600 sport), I think it may have a mildly worked cam as it definitely sounds a bit lumpy but not sure for certain. Never done this before so not really sure what I should be aware of in order to get the correct NV size, any help and/or advice would be just swell.

I would expect Palmside to be pretty knowledgable on which bits to go for. They are pretty into Escorts.

Not saying don't ask here, but more so that when i've been in there they have been helpful. Wasn't for jets, but still.

For anyone that might come across this thread in future searching for an answer, I called Palmside and they said either 150 or 170 would be fine, the guy I spoke to said he would go 170.

it is all relative to what the tune is, and where you want the power to be.
there is a good tech article floating around by Dave Vizard? that explians how and where changes are made. he did have a tuning programm that one could change parameters , and give baseline jetting for varous tunes
