side valve carb needle

Looking to refurb my carb, just looked at my carb needle and it has GG stamped on it, the only one sold for the sidevalve is an EK The GG would appear to be for an 803cc OHV. Are the needle sizes set in stone, or are they dependant on using the one that gets the car driving most efficiently

tappet spanner

Does anyone know what size spanner for sidevalve tappet adjustment, in the workshop manual the top spanner has 1/4 stamped on it. Do you need slim ones as specified in the workshop manual, if so how slim.
