Just received the repro NH Carburator bowl. It looks to be well made and painted. I'm thinking its painted with some type of black spray paint to keep it from rusting till its used.
Its not a big deal buthas anybody used a repro bowl from the vendors? I'll get a little gas or thinner and put some of it on the bowl to probably remove it. Its coated pretty heavy on the inside and wouldn't think it has some type of gas resistant paint on it. If I paint the carb is there some type of spray paint I can use that's solvent resistant? Thanks

No need to go high dollar on this. I use rattle can Rustoleum satin black, and it's fine. Don't paint the inside.

Thanks for the tip. The NH center drain bowl is a good repo part that's reasonably priced by the way.
8 dollars I believe. I'll get some Rustoleum at the local Wal-Mart. I've seen it there before.

I can't believe anyone would reproduce that item! There are originals everywhere! Originally I believe they were raven finished.

Its cheap for me since I don't have to drive here and there to find one using a tank or two of gas or more which isn't cheap. I'm glad they are being reproduced.

The NH Edge Drain carburetor bowl is not as easy to find and not reproduced.

Probably because it might be more difficult to reproduce because of the offset hole along with the center hole. And it wouldn't be around $8 dollars as the center drain bowl is.

I've bought a few of these bowls, they are well made, fit correctly and don't leak.

That's a lot more than can be said for the NH needle and seats sets that continue to be sold that leak, leak, leak because the tips are not made correctly. Must be cheap to have them made so they are too rough to seal instead of so they work right out of the package.

I'm happy somebody tooled up to make the bowls. My time is worth more money that spending two hours trying to dig a usable NH bowl out of a parts pile, clean it up, get the dents out and get it to quit leaking because the bottom sealing area is all rusted and pitted.

Stan, I had a pretty good bowl until I started to clean it up and discovered a pin hole in it. I started to use some JB Weld on it but decided to get the NH repo bowl. In your experience with carbs have you had any luck trying to use some type of gas resistant epoxy or just soldering up a small hole? I do have to say the repo bowl is well made and like you said it does fit well.

Typing on my tablet, mistakes and spell check ahead. I don't use j b weld on anything. Solder is good if you have old 60 40 kester acid core.bead blast, heat, soldering paste, wipe hot ,apply solder,last forever.
