1978 900ss carbs?

Post by gregwgsxr »

Ok so the original carbs off the 900ss got a little hot!
Well a little! they were partially melted as the original bike had been in a fire and the carbs were BER! FUBAR!
I did manage to save the ali tops, float bowls, and jets (more to see what it was originally running).
Now the question/dilemma should i look for some original 40mm dellortos? that have been around for a long time and are potential knackerd? Or go for some new ones?

Or someone have some good ones they want to sell me? :)

I think those are still available , except for the alu tops : keep them.
Carefully change (if needed) the injector plastics.

Only you can decide what you want to do about your carb purchase.

I keep brand new PHM40AS/AD carbs on the shelf for sale.

https://store.bevelheaven.com/Dellorto/ ... -Set-pair/

I also have a set of the same carbs with old style new old stock float bowls, the deep bowl nuts, aluminum fuel banjos etc already installed for sale.

You can of course, install your original aluminum top caps on these without a hitch.

I also stock these deep float bowl nuts, plus whatever else you could possibly need to rebuild / restore your original carbs. Click either link above, then choose CARB & FUEL RELATED form the category list on the left, and you will see a dozen or so sub categories for just carb parts. I may have a set of rebuildable PHM40AS/AD carbs that I have already cleaned up and blasted if you need to go that route. I can sell just the bodies or put them back together like I always do then sell them to you complete. eMail me directly so we can work out what you need offline.
