Default Re: Identifying carburetors

Mart, you have mentioned a serious problem for us old timers, but might not have noted why. You are UK. You are metric. We are not.

The rest of the world, all 6 billion of them, are metric. We, all 300 million or so, who have cars built to the imperial system, are not. Guess where that puts us? On the back end.

When we buy parts for our old clunkers that are manufactured elsewhere, (and many, many of the local folks are metric), they try to accommodate, but standards and other stuff gets in the way and they don't fit quite right. Because they are using metric tooling to get close to inch series parts.
