Re: Amal carb oval bore

So the carb is definately a 276C/1B this is stamped in and it measures a perfect 1" bore except from at the end which is clearly distorted, i am going to attempt to ream this to a better shape. Unsure why it has velo mac wrote on it though

Re: Amal carb oval bore

OK, I wouldn't worry too much about the oval bore at the flange end. The bore in the cylinder barrel is usually bigger anyway as the same barrel is used for an M21 which has an 1 1/16" carb.

Most important is to get the flange flat if it's been distorted, by taping a sheet of W&D paper to a surface plate or piece of plate glass. With water, circling motions and some patience it's soon done.
