C15 carburettor

(1/2) > >>

TIGERJ:
Some of you will remember all the "FUN" I had getting my bike roadworthy.
Looking again at the carburettor I have no insulating block fitted between carb. and head.
I suspect this results in carb. Overheating causing running problems.
However there is no space to fit any block.
I am wondering whether my carb. body is too long?
Anyone know what the dimension should be ?
Regards
           Tim

IanP:
just a thought are your studs too short ? as opposed to your carb body too long

JulianS:
All the monobloc dimensions on the photo.

The insulating washers do not have to be very thick.

TIGERJ:
Many thanks for the reply.
Julian what thickness of insulating washer do you recommend?
Space is short between carb. air intake and metal air filter housing.
Regards
           Tim

JulianS:
Try the thinest you can get, as space limited -about 1/16 inch. You can always try a thicker one if that does not help.

But it may not solve your carb problem.

Not got a C15 but use a 1/8 inch one on my A10.
