Carburetter Identification

Back | Next >>

To overcome any confusion in identifying carburetters on multiple installations, particularly transverse or Vee engine configurations, three alternative methods of identifying such carburetters can be used as follows:

1: The specification number which appears on a metal tag attached to the carburetter by one of the float chamber or suction chamber screws.

2: The position in relation to the driver. The following diagrams show the identification system used.

3: By the interconnection between the throttle and the starting enrichment system on the carburetter. Carburetters of a given specification are also described as having 'left hand' or 'right hand' interconnections. A left hand interconnection carburetter has the interconnection between the throttle and choke mechanism on the left hand side when a carburetter is viewed from the air intake. A right hand interconnection carburetter has the interconnection on the right hand side.
