    Default WTD - Carburettor for 2 litre 504 3 x roundport engine

    I need a new carburettor for the 504 2 litre engine I've installed in Binky (my 404).

    The engine is one of the ones with the three round port inlets. Does anyone have a good working carb with a manual choke for this engine? ...or maybe even able to tell me how, where, what I need to do the Weber conversion, if it really is worthwhile?

    Weber conversions are always worthwhile.

    If you get a Falcon XD/XE Weber it will an electric choke. These are very reliable and OK. Make sure the primary choke is in same position as the Solex primary.

    I believe the Falcon Weber will bolt straight on. If you get the balljoint plus an inch of cable off the falcon, you can join the existing Pug throttle cable to the stub and you are in business.

    I used an electrical "acorn" connector with the plastic cover removed. Adjust the cable by threading the cables through and clamping when l it's right. Then solder the join and connector.

    I have some info. If send an email with your email address I'll email to you.

    The 100 k limit makes it impractical to post.

    Yep winrar and a visit to one of the "shareware" sites

    Looks almost indentical to Winzip

    I believe pkunzip in it's latest version works as well.
