L&L Manufacturing S1 carb on 102

Post by pdb » Mon Sep 14, 2020 1:04 am

I recently got an 1958-59 102 which was fitted with what looked to be a Villers carb. However, on closer inspection, I discovered it was a very similar looking carb made by L&L Manufacturing of Indianapolis, IN. In fact is an L&L S-1 carb which as fitted on Harley Hummers of the same vintage.

Does anyone known if Seagull supplied these or if its a garage mechanic’s later substitution. The carb is now worth more than the engine and I will probably throw on an Amal twin jet 46N.

All 102's were fitted with an Amal 46 twin jet carb, heaps of pics on here.

Except a few very late models (post late 80's)that were fitted with an Amal 416 concentric float carb & CDI ignition.

Thanks to all.

I have a serviceable Amal that I will be installing as soon as I can verify that my coil is good. (Stranger things have happened...I can only hope.)
