Carburetter

Post  andy-s on Mon Feb 16, 2015 9:27 pm

Hello all, I need to get a new s25 carburetter body to replace a very corroded one. i see VS are selling Amal 626 carbs saying they will fit an 8e. Has anyone tried this? and if so 1, is it a straight swap or an easy modification?
2, what air filter is used?
3, is it worth doing on a road going Falcon? or should i just try and find another s25

Andy , stick with the S25, to use the Amal you will need another manifold, filter, cables etc, for a road bike there is nothing wrong with the original set-up

Hello
what is corroded is it the slide bore? I don't know nothing about this carb if it is you could re-sleeve it if you have a lathe or get some body to do this.I did this on my amal carb fitted to my matchless which as a pre-monoblock carb as as been fine for over 7000 mls.

Nametab engineering 01527 522266 are able to sleeve the S25 carburettor for you, they machine out the body and fit a new oversize brass slide , may even have them in stock on an exchange basis

Hi , its the underside of the carb body itself thats badly corroded , the metal is very badly pitted and the check where the cup joint washer sits is gone for about 1/3 of the way around .Its impossible to seal the joint between the body and cup, so fuel constantly weeps out.The bike was a bit of a basket case when i got it and must have had fuel or water & stuff sitting in the carb cup for a long time.Having said that i did fire up after a quick clean!
