    I've used mecrcury sticks, a TwinMax, and now use a Morgan Carbtune:

    http://www.carbtune.com/

    Stainless steel rods in the tubes (no liquids), and no pressure-to electronic reading conversion. At least as accurate as my now-dead Twin-Max, and in some ways easier to interpret when you can see the individual rods oscillating in the tubes. Fast shipping from the UK; obviously I'm a very satisfied customer.

    Well, at least I got mine, Harmonizer that is. Love it. I got rid of my Twin-MAX in favor of the Harmonizer.

    For what it's worth, that "4-6week availability" notice was post 06/27/2011 ... but apparently they're still not in production a year later. It's lookin' like another small American business bites the dust.. .. .

    You are being confused by the way the forum software handles dates with edits to posts. The original post was the 2011 date. The text in that original post was modified by a subsequent edit. The last edit was May 1 2012. As the contents of the post mention orders up to 4/30/2012 and say they'll be shipped by 5/2/2012 I'd guess that the 4-6 week availability started on the date of the last edit, 5/1/21012. It's been about 7 weeks, not a year.

    That said, there still isn't any news on a start of production date. The vendor posted today that he might be interesting in selling or licensing the design [link].

    Glad I've got mine.

    I am also in the market for a carb sync tool, otherwise known as a manometer. I did a Google search for a manometer, and u-tube manometer, dual input manometer. Might broaden the availability of products.

    Check below:

    Having used three types of carburetor balancing tools, hands down the best of the lot was the Harmonizer.

    I'll be watching for when it returns to the market or with a little luck I will find a used one.

    First mention I've seen of a Unisyn in almost 20 years! Left mine at the bottom of the drawer after selling my early 70s Z that had a pair of vacuum Hitachis (imitation SUs with no accelerator pumps).

    Harmonizer is the the way to go- better than my Twin Max. A 4 cyl version may appear eventually...

    Grok (on ADVrider) mentioned that he may be prepared to sell the design or license it at this point. I've got enough connections to be able to manufacture/distribute this product if we can resurrect it. I've sent Grok my contact info...

    Thanks Theo! Hopefully this product will make a comeback! Seems like a fair amount of interest over at advrider.

    I emailed him a couple of months ago and now own one.
    Email him and see what he says.

    My tool of choice..........works fine and has served me from airheads to camheads. No mercury, liquids, batteries or electronic wizardry.

    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
