Default Mochi carb ID

Not seen one of these before. Can anyone confirm that it's made in Argentinia and is for a model B. Has anyone stripped down and restored one of these? Any help appreciated.

Wouldn't think it was for a B with the side fuel inlet.

Yes, Good point. Here's some more pics.... idle passage goes up through body, venturi different .... Is it based on one of the cast iron Tillotsons? Any body know a source of gaskets for it?

Sorry, You're right Purdy. I was thinking of the round bowl Tilly like this pic. On examining it this Mochi 3 puzzler is completely different

Mr. Buckley, thanks for your reply . I wasn't thinking that you were wrong about a cast iron Tillotson , I am always ready to learn if there actually was one .

Thanks Joop, looks similar to the Mochi 3 that started this thread, other than end entry for fuel inlet
