Gl1100 Carb help!!!

Postby foxhound0511 » Sun Apr 21, 2013 12:30 pm



Hello,
I finally fixed my engine problem (had some bent valves). I was rebuilding the carbs and on cyl#2 the previous owner snapped off the float bowl pin mount and JB welded it back on.. no wonder it never ran right... the jb weld looks like jellow now. But its a model vb48c does anyone know if I can just get this carb body separate and cheap?? I checked ebay there was one but it was the VB48A model. Whats the diffrence?

Somewhere on this site I saw a post for a float pin repair/replacement kit.
