I picked up a few aftermarket carbs a while back. One is a marvel and it looks like I could bolt it on a go. Two are Simmons carbs and I'm pretty familiar with them. The last one is a Harrington and I think it looks pretty cool. But, after inspecting it a bit, I can see that there is something missing. There is a hole in the body with a hollow plug in it and there is a broken and missing arm on the throttle lever. What is missing? Is it repairable? Any help would be appreciated. On to the Marvel; does anybody run one of these? How do they compare to a Simmons or NH?
Herrington and D&B Harrington carbs run great when rebuilt properly. They have a sort of variable venture that works in conjunction with the throttle arm. Here's one of mine:
Okay, it looks like the Harrington is going to need some not so easy to fabricate parts before it's a runner. I'll keep an eye out.
How about the Marvel? Is anybody running one of those?
I ran one of the Marvel carbs on my '15 one year with no issues. Great idle quality and easy crank starting. I quit using it because the cork float scares me.
Forgot the picture of it on the '15:
