Anyone in Australia got a spare carb bowl?
« on: February 01, 2022, 04:18:45 PM »
If anybody has an old 32mm carb bowl in any condition (either left or right) I would be happy to buy it. I plan to make one with a level tube and perhaps clear windows for static checking of fuel level. Also to happy to lend it out once done. Just send a message (can we do that here?) Cheers

Clear float bowls are readily available on line for about $35US. I have one on the shelf to answer that  age old question,   
   "I wonder where my floats are set?"               

I'm sure you know that, but had to toss it out there just in case you were about to invest some serious time making one.

Ok, thanks. That's another option if I can't find one.
