Got this one done today, thought it turned out pretty well considering what it looked like when I started.
Inside surfaces machined so the cap fits tight and doesn't leak.
The boss for the float valve is usually bad and won't seal unless it is resurfaced. Hard to see in this pic.
This is another one with a black iron bowl. Got it almost done, it still needs the throttle and choke shaft.
Most time consuming part of this is getting everything cleaned up and spiffy, especially the brass bowls. They all have dents and marks on them and I wanted these two to look a little better since they are gifts and are going to Argentina. Should be done tomorrow. Next one is waiting. 1 am, bed time today.
That's a mighty pretty G. Any suggestion on how to fix a broken (cast iron) G throttle lever, or should I just find another?
Just find another one. The cast iron G's are not too plentiful and there isn't much demand for them. The two arm choke lever in cast is hard to find and harder to find that isn't cracked or broken.
Stan & Steve,
I think these are for the 'G'. Let me know if they will work.
P.S. - Stan - That 'G' for Argentina is the original carb that came with my '16 Touring.
The three throttle levers in front are steel - the rest are bronze.
I have a few choke levers too - I believe most of these are NOS.
Cool! Bob, I was going to come see you when I was in Tacoma for Christmas but ended up wasting the day going to look at some carbs in Shelton that were supposedly for sale. Didn't know you had all this stuff, would have been more better than where we went. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what you want for the parts.
Actually it is these two that are going now. Got the other one done last night.
Twin carbs of different Mothers .
