Vespa grande parts

Please excuse my noobish lack of knowledge.

Where can i get parts for my 79 vespa grande?

I see people naming intakes and carbs and stuff but dont know how to tell which ones will fit and which ones wont.

Also. . . What do the numbers mean when talking about carbs? 12/10? 13/13? Is it like port size? Mm?

Lastly: i want to be able to go up hills. Other than losing weight(my waist is slowly shrinking) any ideas?

you can only have one intake on the grande unless you go with a reed intake. The intake can, however, be bored out to 13mm, so that you can run the 13.13 carb on it (13mm opening). Logically, that is the biggest carb you can run with the stock cases. You won't have problems going uphill if it's variated, which it should be. You can do a bunch of small modifications to the engine and the variator to get more out of it. Read the wiki for more info and use the search function!
