Hi Steve , if they look like the pics attached they are SU HS8, but you could have HD8 or I have heard speak of some possibly having Zenith Stromberg(not sure about that for certain). Can you post a picture of the carbys so someone can identify them.
If they are HS8 the link below is worth reading.

They look like HS8 to me too.But Ii am a novis.
But that oil filter part number is very interesting,It is a Ryco filter?(Z13...5 I think,please confirm)
As I can not find a Ryco listed filter to fit my S1 and had to get one on bay.

Maybe Grant Francis will jump into help here ,identifying your carbs. I am sure they are HS8 as HD's have the mixture adjustment screw at the bottom of the carby. The HS8 has a jet tube from the bottom of the fuel bowl to the jet. It is a rubber fuel hose with a spring on the outside. An HD8 has a solid alloy moulding for this.
