Re: Repairing stripped Amal carb threads

Sorry slight exaggeration just went out to the shed and had a look, there are enough inserts to repair 12 carbs. If your going to search for it on ebay the brand is Zuess Industrial Tools - Thread repair kit

Re: Repairing stripped Amal carb threads

Hi, after some research it appears (through visual images on the internet) the Amal single jet carb in question on the AD 102 is a #316 (thanks Keith P) and it is originally from a (BSA Bantam D1) motorbike manufactured from 1948.

The carb slide has a diameter of 19 mm. Length at highest point 23 mm lowest point (angle) 14.3mm. Hope you have been ...
