Title: A10 Carb
Post by: JOHNSTONE on 13 October, 2017, 19:42:48
I have just taken the carb off my 1958 A10 Gold Flash  to do a refurb and its stamped 376/15 which I believe is the wrong carb. I understand it should be a 376/17. Can anybody please tell me what effect the 376/15 will have on the way the Bike runs if I put it back on.
Thanks in anticipation.

The stamp these days means nothing - the carb will most probably have been rebuilt several times using any serviceable body. How it works is the important bit.

correct bore size might help for a start.  ;)

Draganfly's website has an article on these carbs in their A7 A10 Part Section and Hitchcock motorcycles have a few experts on Amals at their base.

Amal will provide you with a catalogue of all carb specifications 1940 onwards;

Will cost you the postage.
