the basic CD carbs are the same with cable controls being introduced later 

rough clues about the evolution ..........

CD has what i call the thames barrier choke where a ramp rises to block the throat and raise the air piston for enrichment + jet adj from underside

CDS has a enrichment valve on the front carb with a tube connecting the valve to the rear carb. jet adj from underside

CDSE   has twiddle proofed adjustment using a long hex key down the dashpot can also have temperature compensators on the side to weak idle when hot

CDSEV  has more emission controls added

i fitted CDS on my 1600  with a small linkage mod to operate from the rod set up connected to the rear carb spindle 

in fact i had two choke starters  one on each , worked fine  and fitted rams inside the air filters with a bit of careful cut and chop

Martyn,

My GT6 had a bracket on the chassis, just two twisted wire hoops and a fixing loop. Original, but looked like it it had been made from a wire coat hanger. The pipes now fit into  two holes in the radiator cowl.

later modified to remove any spiral wound stuff    to use cheap plastic waste pipe

slightly bigger diameter and less turbulence  and dont need any support  

flared the ends with hot air gun over a socket 

just used plastic pipe weld glue for the joints
