Are you referring to the MCH(?) Weber's? The single bbl side drafts? They were originally designed for big V-twin motorcycles. Evidently the choke mechanism and the mixture controls can be very far off out of the box and a little tricky to get right. Otherwise... I think it's too early to know just how reliable they are on a year to year basis. They should be fine though once the set up pains are weathered.

As for weak spark... need more info. What year is your TR6. Your starter spinning quickly should not draw power from the spark side of the coil. It could either be your coil, or if yours is a later TR6 with a ballast resistor in the ignition system, with a fault, it could be causing a weak spark. Also, is the starter spinning quickly a new development? Why? New starter? If not, the starter spinning quicker and easier could also be a loss of compression which would also cause a starting problem.
