Amal on 10E Engine

Post  A10 JWO on Tue Aug 25, 2015 4:47 pm

Just curious. Which Amal will fit the 10 E engine as a replacement. I see that Amal recomend a lightweight concentric for Villiers on their website, these have the fuel connection at the bottom of the float bowl ? Obviously most of the Villiers float bowl is buried in the top of the crankcase and the fuel connection is above that.

Amal carb

Post  piston 197 on Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:09 pm

You will also need a swan neck manifold as used on 32A/37A to lift up the carb and an adaptor as sold by "cotton Villiers spares" to covert from clip fit to 2 bolt flange fit, Problem is on a road going FB Falcon , it is going to foul the bodywork in the area of the horn. There is little advantage in swapping your S25 "concentric" carburettor for an Amal "concentric " carb

Amac missed a trick and made a mistake back in 1927 when they bought out Binks,and brown and Barlow to form Amal ( amalgamated carburettors ). Villiers bought out the Mills patent concentric carburettor company and the patents for concentric design which they held up to the 1960's. When the patent lapsed Amal jumped on the band wagon and offered a concentric carb, thus admitting the error of their ways
Amal did initially make a concentric carb circa 1927, but had to stop as they were infringing the Mills patent held by Villiers.
