BSA C15 Carb
« on: 23 May, 2017, 23:46:45 »
Hi Folks,

I have an BSA SS80 1964 with a 376/281 Monobloc carb, I have stripped the carb to recondition it and whilst looking at carb diagrams I have noticed that mine has no air valve or associated operating gear. Although there does appear to be a hole in the carb cap for an air valve control cable. Do you know if the air valves were fitted to all the carbs in this series? I am also not sure how the the air valve is operated, I think there is meant to be a valve leaver on the handle bar, but looking at poor quality photos on the internet of SS80's i'm not sure I can see one of these.

Can anyone shed any light on my missing air valve?

Thanks

JulianS

Check the Amal carb website - below is link which takes you to the 376 choke parts;

http://amalcarb.co.uk/monobloc-series/376-series/other-kits/376-choke-kit.html

You will need a handlebar lever which goes on the right bar next to front brake and a choke cable. Your favourite dealer should be able to supply the lever and cable  - I use C and D Autos (01564 795000) for parts they have been in business since 1946 and are very helpful.
