Honda Express carburetor versions, showing things that are different.

Honda Express carburetor versions

Cable choke: This carburetor has a throttle cable and a choke cable coming straight up and looping around. It has no vent hoses, vacuum hoses, or oil lines going into it. The oil injection goes into the intake manifold. The float reservoir vent is just a small tube slanting downward.

As with most Honda carburetors, fuel is never allowed to spill onto the engine or anything else. Instead an overflow tube inside the float chamber allows any overflow fuel to flow out and down the drain hose and onto the ground below the engine.  

The 1977-79 Honda NC50 and NA50 each had two carburetor versions, PA08B-A and PA08B-B. Regardless of the year, or the VIN number, they could have either version. So the customer had to look at the model number stamped into the carburetor, and tell the Honda dealer that number, to get certain parts correct. 

Oil injection hose location: The 1977-79 Honda Express had the oil hose going into the intake manifold, not the carburetor. The 1980 and later models had the oil injection hose going into the carburetor at the throttle slide area. There must have been some benefit, like maybe throttle slide lubrication.

this jet is 0.78mm 0.0307″, cleaned with a #69 drill 0.0292″     

 

Main Jet: On PA08BB, EA, EB and DA versions the main jet is a tamper-proof tight press-fit type, in the center. The jet cannot be removed, and cannot be replaced. It is 0.78 mm – 0.0307″, and can be cleaned perfectly with a #69 drill 0.0292″.    

On a PA08BA the main jet presses or slides in and out, and is supported by a rubber disk. If the disk is missing, the jet can slide downward, allowing fuel to get past the jet o-ring, causing a rich fuel mixture.

Idle Hole Cleaning: Near the engine side of the carb body is a brass tube that dips down into the liquid gasoline. That tube, about 1.5 mm (0.060″) inner diameter and 20mm long, leads to the idle or pilot jet, which is about 0.30 mm (0.012″). The idle jet gets clogged from sitting, then the engine will run but won’t idle. Nothing but a very thin (0.010″) steel guitar string will clean it out. See below about jet drills and cleaning tiny jets. Ultrasonic parts cleaners, carb spray, carb dip, and compressed air are not usually effective. Another way to clean out the idle jet is to 1) place a drill bit that fills the hole (so it does not get crushed), 2) clamp it with a small vise grips, 3) rotate back and forth while pulling, 4) when it comes out, the actual hole is easy to see and clean, 5) press it back in the same way it came out.

Strong solvent is needed to dissolve varnish or tar residue left from years of sitting. Carburetor spray, parts dip, or acetone all help clean out the tar, sometimes with a lot of scraping, brushing or rubbing. Always remember to remove all rubber things first, to not let the rubber touch the solvent. Strong solvents will swell soft rubber, deforming it. Never soak the whole carburetor in strong solvent. In this way, Shaun (at Royal Cyclery and later at Myrons Mopeds) has successfully cleaned out over 100 Honda Express carburetors, without ever replacing any of the rubber gaskets. Part of the reason was they were only sold at Honda dealers, but nonetheless, they are not needed in a normal service or clean-out.

Keihin PA08C-A: This is approximately for a 1979-80 NC50, or maybe NA50. It is identical to a PA08B-B. It has the same white float, non-stirrup float needle, fixed jet, 18mm top threads, and same gaskets. The idle mixture screw type is unknown. No photo available.

Flange Mount: 38 mm hole spacing, 2 x 20 (24 od) o-ring on NC50, NA50 (PA15A-A, PA16A-A, PA13B-B)

Flange Mount: 36 mm hole spacing, 2 x 20 (24 od) o-ring on NC50I, (PA25A-A)

Vacuum-operated automatic choke: These carburetors feature a screw-in main jet, and a built-in vacuum-operated (not electric) automatic choke. When the temperature switch on the head is cold, it allows the engine vacuum to raise the choke plunger up, which opens a new fuel passage, to enrich the mixture during cold starting. As the engine warms up, it closes the vacuum, allowing the thin spring to pull it back down, for normal running. The more precise term for this is “automatic vacuum operated cold start fuel mixture enrichment device”. The 1981-83 automatic choke device itself is not replaceable.

The vacuum source hose has a check ball valve that only allows air flow into the carburetor venturi, and not back out. It needs this even though there is reed valve, because there is still some residual reverse flow caused by the forward and reverse motion of the piston.

The vacuum choke that came out in 1981 did not last long. After 1983, 50cc on-road Honda’s had electric chokes, because they were electric-start scooters with 12 volt batteries. 

Identical twins: The PA16A-A looks identical to the PA15A-A. It is on the 1981 Honda NA50 Express II, the final year of that USA-only model. They both have 38 mm flange hole spacing, #75 screw-in jet, 20 mm intake o-ring and the non-stirrup type B float needle. The only difference is the top cable curved pipe. On a PA15A-A it is permanently attached to the screw-on top cap with a swivel joint, while on a PA16A-A the curved cable pipe is detachable.

Intake studs: After 1981 these carbs had studs instead of threaded holes in the mounting flange, except for PA25A-A. PA13B-A and PA13E-A studs are spaced 32 mm with a 18mm intake o-ring. PA13B-B studs are spaced 38 mm, with a intake o-ring 20 mm. 

Iowa carb: The PA25A-A is like a PA13B-A, with M18-1.0 top cap threads, vacuum-operated automatic choke, choke jet in float bowl, tall 2.5 x 1.5 float bowl gasket, non-stirrup type float and float needle, screw-in main jet size 75. The only noticeable difference is the absence of studs.

Iowa cylinder: The exhaust port is restricted. Here left is 49-state, right is Iowa.

Float Valve Seat: On these carburetors the float seat (the cup that the float needle valve slides in) is carved into the actual carburetor body, and is not replaceable. Polish it with a spinning Q-tip and polish, such as Turtle Wax. 

Choke jet: On all of these NC50-type carbs, both shallow and deep-float-bowl versions, there is a choke jet, pressed into a corner of the float bowl. When it gets clogged the engine will only start easily when it is warm.

Verify all jets and fuel or air passageways are open, using wires and or visually with carb spray (wear goggles).

Cable Differences: You can tell what year range a Honda Express is from a distance. A 1977 to 1980 has two cables, a throttle and a choke cable coming straight up from the carburetor.  A 1981 has just a throttle cable coming straight up, but also a vacuum hose for the choke and a float vent hose.  A 1982 to 1983 has a black plastic curved elbow on top, that redirects the throttle cable forward and down, a vacuum hose for the choke, and a vent hose. A 1982-83 also has a different frame, a low headlight, and a two speed transmission.

The Honda Express throttle cable curves rearward and loops downward to get below the carburetor, and then goes forward into the frame tube. The loop design adds friction, but it makes a good clean step-thru frame without any cables or wires hanging out.

You can tell the difference between a carb with an idle air mixture screw, and a carb with an idle fuel mixture screw, by the shape of the casting at the top of the float chamber.

These are the baby Mikuni’s, the smallest of the small, 10 to 13mm for limited 50cc engines. See Info below.  


1. Mikuni VM12SC on Yamaha QT50 and PW50

This is a 12mm carburetor (12mm venturi diameter) with a 18mm clamp diameter.

It is not like any common Mikuni for a limited 50cc, like a moped or a kids off road. Apparently, Mikuni made carbs according to to each big manufacturer’s design. So Kawasaki KDX50, Suzuki JR50 have baby Mikuni carbs but with different designs than Yamaha PW50 and QT50. 

VM12SC versions: The first version was 3L5 on 1979-81 QT50. It had an idle air screw just to the left of the idle speed screw. After 1981, on versions 4L4, 4X4, 5PG the air screw was to the right of the idle speed screw. The off road 4X4 and 5PG versions were mostly the same except the cables exited at 90 degrees, with metal curved pipes, instead of straight up.

Indian Mikuni carb service

The idle hole is often blocked. There are three spray holes, the main and mid-range under the throttle slide, and the smaller idle hole downstream of the throttle slide. When the bike is idling the slide is down and only the idle hole is active. A small slit of air under the slide blows over it, creating the suction and breaking up the liquid gasoline into small droplets. The drill size is tiny, a #76 which is 0.020 inch. The drill is held in a pin vise. The pin vise goes into the drill chuck. After about 2mm of depth there is a empty chamber behind the hole. That chamber leads to the idle jet which is at the top of a vertical tunnel-tube made into the zinc casting. The idle jet can be cleaned separately from below. It is smaller, like maybe 0.010 inch. That is smaller than the smallest drill #80 in a numbered set.

Carb spray is used to tell if the idle hole or idle jet is clogged. When sprayed up from the vertical idle tunnel-tube, the spray should shoot out from the mid range hole and dribble out from the idle hole.

 


3. Mikuni VM10-24 on Angel (TYM) mopeds

This carb is on Taiwan-made Angel and Speed Bird mopeds. It is a 10mm carburetor with a 20mm clamp diameter.

It is a 1960’s to early 70’s design, like a 1965 Yamaha U5 Newport, or a 1970 Suzuki F50 Cutlass carburetor. It has a brass swinging twin-float and a replaceable float needle seat. It has nothing made of rubber in it, unlike more modern carburetors.

6. Info

These are the baby Mikuni’s, the smallest of the small, 10 to 13mm for limited 50cc engines. Unlimited 50cc like Kawasaki AR50 or Yamaha YSR50 have 18mm size carburetors. Those are bigger babies, but still “off the charts”.

USA motorcycle parts suppliers commonly have parts for 28 to 44mm Mikuni VM series (classic round slide) carburetors. They have 2.5 or 3.0mm jet needles, not 2.0 like the “babies” have. Their float needles are also bigger.

Yamaha, Suzuki, and Kawasaki supply some parts for the small Mikuni carburetors that are on their 50cc models.

 

Carb clips

 

Jet Needle Clips are tiny and get lost easily. The full name of that kind of clip is “metric side-mount external retaining ring (E-style)”. The clip size for moped carburetors is smaller than any motorcycle carburetor clip, because the jet needle and everything else in the carburetor is smaller. A 10mm Indian moped carb jet needle is 2.0mm thick with a 1.5 clip groove. Mikuni carbs 18mm and up have needles 2.5mm thick with a 1.9mm clip grooves, or bigger.

    E210-12-50 Tillotson carb comp.   none  has no float reservoir
These have an adapter “bell” for the air filter, to interchange with Keihin.
These did not work well when they were new with fresh rubber back in 1978.
Tillotson carbs were replaced by Keihin, only months after they came out.
40 years later in 2018 their rubber parts, especially the diaphragm, are all stiff.
This is the Tillotson carb kit for Indian, Rk-32Hk, available on Amazon.

Gurtner AR2 series moped carburetors have a large flange, like a wall. It is for an “air box”, a noise silencing, fuel mist recovering, and air filtering chamber. There are two (venturi) sizes, 10 or 12mm, and two styles, side or center mount. Center and side mount carbs look the same, but don’t interchange completely.

Side mount carburetors have threads for an air filter stud, side holes for a center mount air box clip, and clamp to a 19mm intake pipe. The side mount float top cover has a vertical fuel hose spigot.

A stripped bare side mount body, as is, will exactly replace a bare center mount body.

Center mount carburetors have no threads in the stud hole, side holes for a center mount air box clip, and have removable sleeves, black 16 x 19 (for AR210), and white 17 x 19mm (for AR212). The sleeves reduce the precision clamp size from 19mm to 16 or 17. The purpose is to be tamper resistant. The sleeves fit tight and are difficult to remove without damaging them. The center mount float top cover has a horizontal fuel hose spigot.

A stripped bare center mount body, after threads are cut in the air box post hole, will replace a bare side mount body.

Center mount early  Some pre-USA years 1960’s or early 1970’s had no fuel hose inlet in the float top cover. Instead it was in the carburetor body just below the float top. This type is in many Motobecane USA parts illustrations, but it was not used on any, or hardly any US models. In the illustration below it was edited out. Out of 47 original carbs, taken off once-living Motobecanes from around Southern California, none were this “center mount early” type with the fuel hose spigot in the carb body.

Center Mount Air Cover: The center mount type (short and deep) air box is too deep and sticks out too much as a side mount. The right side engine cover panel must be removed, and some kind of high-offset right pedal crank arm installed. Then maybe pedal threads are different.

Side Mount Air Cover: The side mount type (tall and flat) air box is too tall and hits the frame as a center mount. More importantly, they break, fall off, and get thrown away, in addition to getting lost. Because of that, they have become scarce and pricey. From 2000-2015 maybe 200 people have asked for this item, but only two were available and sold at MM.

The Motobecane piston-port two-stroke engine needs the air cover because the gasoline mist flows in and out in both directions. So there is a little cloud of fuel and oil mist out in front of the carburetor. Without the air cover, this fuel cloud gets wasted and blown away (or ends up on the riders right leg or shoe). Besides that, the air cover provides the correct amount of flow restriction, which is a good thing, up to a point. See below about running without an air cover (how it can damage the engine by over-heating from not enough fuel and oil).

Mount Type: All Motobecane carbs clamp to 19.0mm inlet pipes. But many of the pre-March 1978 carburetors were cracking at the edge of the clamp, or the base of the petals. So Gurtner beefed up the carb body with a reinforcing ring, made the clamp petals about 1mm thicker each, and changed the clamp to the bigger Peugeot double-wall type.

Air Filter Stud: When the mount was made stronger in 1978, the air filter post was also beefed up from 5mm to 6mm. This made the threads in the body more resistant to stripping. Another issue that was improved is when the air filter stud is over tightened, a bulge can form in the float chamber wall behind it. That bulge makes the float stick. See below.

Choke Slide: This is often mysteriously missing, but actually stuck in the lowest (normal) position, either by tar or corrosion. It can be unfroze with solvent and/or by removing the cable wire and pushing it up from the bottom by tapping with a small punch and hammer. When the choke slide is pulled up, the choke is “on” for cold starting, and an extra fuel path is exposed by the step in the choke slide. If the choke slide is actually missing, the choke would be “on” all the time, but some extra air gets in along with the extra fuel. So the net effect of running without a choke slide is minor.

Top Pull or Bottom Pull Choke Cable:

1. On center mount carburetors, for variator models, the choke cable is “top pull”. The choke and throttle cables detach, allowing the carburetor to be serviced away from the bike.

2. On side mount carbs for non-variator (Dimoby) models, the choke cable is “top pull”, but has a elbow (curved tube), like the throttle cable. The choke and throttle cables detach, allowing the carburetor to be serviced away from the bike.

3. On side mount carbs for ’78-later 30mph variator models, the choke cable is “bottom pull”, where the choke wire runs through the carb body, trapping it on or near the bike. On those most service operations are done with cables attached, about one foot away from the bike. To remove the carb you have to pull the choke wire all the way out. Then it won’t usually go back because the braided end gets frayed. Then the choke wire has to be replaced. 

 

 

 Le Diffuseur: When you look down the “throat” or venturi of a Gurtner carburetor, with the throttle wide open (throttle slide up and out of the way of the air), the little brass tube that sticks up from the floor of the venturi is the diffuser. It sprays the gasoline mist sucked up by the moving air.

Left, top are the way more common type, the “slide fit” type diffusers. Can you see, besides the main large hole down the middle, that each diffuser has two small holes facing out of the page? Those are the idle holes. When they are blocked, the engine will run OK, but will not run slow or “idle”. On a 21002 diffuser the idle holes are 0.016″. That size hole is cleaned with a #78 drill, also 0.016″.

Left, bottom are the less common type, the “press fit” type diffusers. You can only see one idle hole on this kind, but there is another on the opposite side. These diffusers have a very small center hole, that serves has the limiting jet. They are installed by pressing in from above, instead of sliding in from below like the other kind. The purpose of this type is to be tamper resistant. There is no particular direction that they have to be aimed at, and no flat side in the carb body for that purpose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Additional Information:

Motobecane 20mph carb sliced in half

Slide Fit and Press Fit Diffusers: Some Motobecane carburetors have “press fit” diffusers, instead of the usual “slide fit”. This is one of those types (AR2-10-737 or AR2-10-991 or perhaps others) that has been sliced in half to expose it’s secrets.

While “slide fit” diffusers slide in and out from the bottom, this “press fit” diffuser 52560, and carburetor type, slides (presses actually) in or out from the top. Many of these get smashed on top by Motobecane mechanics trying to push the diffuser downwards, the normal way out.

Press-fit-diffuser carburetors cannot be made to accept slide fit diffusers. 

 

Motobecane Choke Circuit cut away

Choke (cold starting) system: Unlike the Peugeot Gurtner and most other moped carburetor chokes, the Motobecane Gurtner AR2 has an additional fuel path or tunnel. It’s “choke” is a fuel enrichment device rather than an air restricting device. The choke circuit is completely independent of the main fuel circuit. It has it’s own fuel tunnel out of the float bowl, that bypasses the throttle slide, diffuser, and jet. 

Original Equipment Carbs have Dates: This carburetor clearly shows it’s manufacture date of 5/77, below the model number. It could be from a late 1977 or a 1978 bike. The 39 used Gurtner AR2 carburetors in Myrons Mopeds inventory on Dec 2014 have dates ranging from 03/74 to 04/80. The majority are from 1977 and 1979. See above “Population Study of Gurtner AR1 and AR2 Carburetors in Southern California”.

1978-79 Motobecane 7

1978 Motobecane 7

In US mopeds, this carburetor was only on one model for one year. That lone French pony was the 1978 Motobecane Model 7. This carburetor was, no doubt, also used on many 1960’s or maybe 1950’s cyclomoteurs worldwide. But in the US it is uncommon (since mopeds weren’t “welcome” until the 1970’s). Only 2 or 3% of the Motobecanes sold in the US were Model 7.

Gurtner Floats: Of the three Gurtner floats, that look like they should interchange but do not, the AR2-type 14101 (Motobecane) Gurtner #4901 is the largest, followed by the AR1-type 14123 (for MB Model 7), and the smallest D-type 06437 (Peugeot) Gurtner #6437. Gurtner used to color code their new float containers green for Motobecane and red for Peugeot. Otherwise they are almost indistinguishable, unless together side by side. 

Float Service: On plastic types the needle is a press fit into the top and bottom holes in the bulb. The needle can simply need moving up or down. Or it could also need the tip straightened and/or sharpened/machined. Or the needle could need to be replaced, if it has become too short or too bent. Any piece of 1.5mm brass rod, cut to these lengths, and machined to a cone tip, would restore the float. In addition, a gasoline-proof sealant should be used to seal the press-fit holes, as a precaution, or if gasoline enters the bulb.

Before 1960, all (or almost all?) Mobylettes had 10mm carburetors (or 8.7). So the speed and power were limited to be under about 25mph

After 1959, some had 10mm carbs and went 25mph, and some had 13mm carbs and went 30-35mph.

Population Study of Gurtner AR1 and AR2 Carburetors in Southern California

These 47 Motobecane carburetors all came from whole bikes that were stripped out for parts. The Motobecane population in the greater Los Angeles area is roughly represented by this large subset. Out of 47 carbs there were only two AR1 types, from Model 7. All of the 45 others were from Models 40 and 50.

These are the surviving Motobecane carburetors that lasted longer than the rest of the bike. If there were times when the metal was weak, those months or batches would be missing from this collection, pretty much, because the ones that tended to break already broke and were thrown away. It seems like 1978 is missing some survivors, mysteriously. Perhaps they were used as upgrades/replacements for 1976-77 thin-mount ones that broke. You can see from this sub-population that early carburetors were center mount, and late ones were side mount, and in between was both.

 

 

 


Dellorto SHA

December 24, 2014

 

Dellorto SHA is a family of Italian moped or mini-bike carburetors. SHA’s have flat throttle slides and no jet needles. They all have the same outer size and main body appearance, with a 59mm round flange for an air filter. They have been produced for in Italy from the 1960’s to the 2000’s. In particular the Dellorto SHA 14/12 and 14/9 carburetors were on tens of thousands of US mopeds from 1976 to 1985.

Arbeo-Dellorto SHA carbs were made in Spain under license for the Spanish moped Derbi. They were more goldish colored, and tended to leak fuel past the float seat.

Generic SHA: Since the 2000’s there are China made remakes. Most have different screw threads, not Italian-metric. Many have M5-0.80 jet threads, different from Dellorto M5-0.75. The Runtong remake carb has M5-0.75 jet threads. So it can take any Dellorto M5 jet, but many other generics cannot.

Carburetor Size: The venturi is where the air mixes with gasoline. It is also where the air passage gets narrower, to cause a higher air speed in order to atomize or break up the liquid fuel into smaller droplets. With Dellorto SHA carburetors, two numbers are used to describe the size of the venturi. The first number is the venturi exit, and the second number is the venturi entrance. So looking at an SHA 14/12 from the front you see a 12mm hole, and from the back (engine side) you see a 14mm hole.

Choke Type: The choke is a lever you push or pull, “on” for cold starting, or “off” for normal running. There are three types used on Dellorto SHA carburetors:

A  direct lever  push down lever on carb to put choke “on”, give full throttle to release it “off”
B  linkage lever  same operation as direct lever
C  cable choke  cable goes to a handlebar thumb lever, pull to put choke “on”, let go for “off”    

Cable choke is needed when the carburetor choke lever cannot be reached by hand.

Clamp size: These new replacement carburetors only clamp tight when the intake pipe is exactly the right size. Many intakes are made slightly smaller or become smaller from wear. When the clamp screw is tightened fully, the carburetor can still move, and eventually slip off. For a 18 sleeve, a 18.00 to 18.10 pipe would clamp tight, but 17.95 or less pipe would not clamp tight. That is not very much forgiveness.

Cut up a can: A strip cut out from an aluminum can, with scissors, can be placed under the sleeve. Thickness is 0.1mm. Either a 1/3 circle or a full circle can be used, as needed. A full circle adds 0.2 to the clamp diameter, for a 17.80 to become 18.00. A 1/3 circle adds 0.1 mm, for a 17.90 to become 18.00. A thin aluminum baking pan is thinner than a can. A thinner full circle is better for when only a little is needed.

Most brand new original Garelli, Minarelli, and Tomos intake manifolds (pipes) are 18.00. But some are 17.95, and actually need a 1/3 strip of aluminum can inserted in order to clamp tight and proper, with new original carburetors.

Cable pipes are for redirecting the throttle cable. Pipe thread is M6-0.75. Adjuster thread is M5-0.75. A throttle cable end can pass through, except 2d. Bikes with front carburetors don’t need them, because the cable goes straight up. Others have gas tanks or floor boards that the cable must go under or around.

Encarwi Tomos Carbs

Left, 1974-83 Tomos carb, Encarwi A83, bare.
The jet and jet holder unscrew from the side hole.
The jet can be cleaned out easy, on the roadside.
Right, 84-86 Tomos, Encarwi 88A85/103, complete.
The side hole is blocked. Jet access is from bottom.
The engine must be lowered to access the jet.
Jetting/servicing is ten times more difficult.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Encarwi 88A85/103

At right is a 88A85/103 with the non-removeable jet-holder-spray-tube removed. The jet is a 4mm thread, not 3.5 like all the other Encarwi jets. This one was not a tight fit and needed epoxy to hold it. When the jet was unscrewed the whole brass tube turned.

4.  ENCARWI  JETS

 

Encarwi Jets: Most Encarwi carburetors use standard Bing 3.5mm jets. Those jets have a “short” head that is only 3mm long. To use a short jet, the jet holder must be for a short jet. But some Encarwi carburetors have longer 3.5mm jets with 8mm “medium” or 12mm “long” heads.

5. Encarwi Info

1971-1977 Tomos Automatic N had a Laura M48 engine with an Encarwi carb

Before 1973, Tomos had Puch and Laura engines. The 1971 Tomos Automatic N had a Laura M48 engine with Encarwi carburetor. Tomos continued to use Encarwi on their A3 engine, until 1983.

1977 Flandria Bermuda with Encarwi

1977 Flandria Bermuda
Encarwi A-type carb

Welcome. Encarwi (made in Holland, now the Netherlands) was a division of Bing (Germany). On US models, Bing-Encarwi carburetors were used on mopeds by Batavus and Badger, with Laura (Holland) engines, Flandria (Belguim), and pre-1986 Tomos (Yugoslavia).

Encarwi “A” series carbs had an “automatic” choke, controlled by a special twist throttle with thumb button. The choke button lets the throttle twist opposite, below “zero”. This exposes a hole in the slide valve, in front of the fuel nozzle. After starting, twist throttle and choke clicks off automatically.

88A85/103 (Ø12, Ø14 slide 426, jet 4mm #50, no jet access from side) for Tomos A3 1983-85
All of these jets have 3.5mm threads except for the 88A85/103 which has 4mm threads.
 
Encarwi “S” series carburetors had a “standard” choke, controlled by a small lever on the handlebar via a cable.

Encarwi carbs and slides

Top, Encarwi carburetors, engine view, with slides slightly open, showing the idle air channels or slots or holes.
Bottom, the corresponding throttle slides, all 14mm diameter, bottom view. The pair of large holes is for the cable.
Substitutions or conversions: Any S-type slide can be drilled and machined to be made for an A83 or H12 carb.
The S-type slides (190, 405, 188, 167, 2) all interchange, but have different idle mixture idling behaviors.
The Tomos A3 slide 426 fits a Trac M56 with H12 carb, with only minor widening (drilling) of the sprayer hole.

 

 

Encarwi Slides

The amazing Encarwi 426 auto-choke throttle slide (Tomos A3) is explained in four steps:
1. Full power   – throttle cable is pulled all the way. The slide does not have to be there. Main jet controls the mixture.
2. Partial power -throttle cable is pulled part way. The slide limits the amount of air. The main jet controls the mixture.
3. No power (idle) -throttle cable is pulled slightly. The slide blocks most of the air. Idle slot size controls the mixture. 
4. Cold start  – throttle cable is not pulled at all. The choke jet hole and choke air hole in slide 426 control the mixture.
Substitutions or conversions: The S25 and A83 Ø12 carbs are the same, except for the throttle slide and idle screw.
The Ø14 throttle slides 167 and 426 are nearly the same, except the Auto type 426 has extra choke holes and cut outs.

You can see that these early Encarwi carbs have many things in common with the later ones. The most obvious thing is the angle of the throttle slide with the venturi. Most carburetors have the slide valve 90 degrees to the air flow, but Encarwi carbs are more like 60 degrees. The other thing unique to Encarwi is the “automatic” choke, indicated by the absence of an idle speed adjustment screw, the choke holes and cut-away in the slide, and an extra thumb button on the throttle control that lets the throttle cable go completely slack, below normal idle or “zero”.  

 

 


Bing Jets

October 26, 2011

Bing jets are in Bing and some Encarwi carburetors.

3.5 mm thread (M3.5-0.60) Bing jets are on Puch-Bing, Solo-Bing, Kreidler-Bing, and Encarwi.

4.0 mm thread (M4.0-0.70) Bing jets are on Sachs-Bing, late 80’s AD-Bing and 90’s Korado-Bing.

Myrons Mopeds Bing Jet Sizes Chart

These jets are on other 1970’s – 80’s small engines with Bing carburetors. 

The Bing 3.5 main jets are also idle jets on some bigger Keihin carbs.

The Bing 4.0 main jets are also idle jets on some bigger Dellorto carbs

Original Bing jets are numbered wrong, in a sense. The jet number is not the millimeter size. An original Bing 54 is actually 0.51 mm, not 0.54. This was discovered this in the early 2000’s when aftermarket Bing jets came out. 200 jets were carefully measured with precise wire guages, and then plotted on the graph at right. The original jets (and the first A&R generics) form one line. All other generic jets form a different line.

Generic Bing jets are numbered correctly. The size they say is the millimeters they are. So a generic Bing 54 is actually 0.54 mm.

Encarwi Carburetor Service

May 4, 2008

Encarwi A83 carburetor on Tomos A3 engine

Encarwi Carb Service for Tomos A3 1974-83

This very simple, early Tomos carb is designed to be serviced without removal. After 1985, Tomos A3 & A35 models came with Dellorto SHA14/12 carburetors. The Tomos A3 carburetor is in a confined area above the engine and below the sheet metal gas tank/frame. It is difficult to remove.

 Two super usfeul and easy checks:

1) Check the jet. With a large flat head screwdriver or a 9mm wrench, remove the jet holder #2. Remove the jet #2 with a medium-thin flat head screwdriver. Hold the jet up to a light source, such as a sunny white wall. Look through the tiny hole to see if light gets through. If it’s pitch black it’s completely blocked. If it’s not circular then it’s partially blocked, like by a fiber.

2) Check everything else. When the jet holder is removed, and the gas valve is turned on, gasoline should flow out of the gas tank, through the banjo bolt #16 at the float top #12, and then dribble out the hole where the jet holder was. This is a way to quickly test the fuel system, tank, valve, line, filter, and float, all at once.

If gas does not spill out with the jet holder removed, then gas is not getting to the jet. Check if gas comes out of the tank. If gas is getting to the carburetor, but not getting to the jet, then either the inlet banjo #14 or banjo bolt #16 is clogged, or the float top #12 is clogged, or the float #11 is in upside down, or the float is stuck in the up position. Several things can cause this kind of float to stay up and not drop down and let gas come into the float bowl reservoir: being installed upside down (pointy end goes up), rust powder filling up the guide hole at the bottom of the float chamber, the float bulb being pushed too far down the rod, the wrong float, or a dented float chamber wall.

Servicing

The jet holder #2 unscrews from the left side. It holds the jet #1, Bing 3.5mm size 46.

To remove an old, hard, shrunken and very stuck on, fuel hose, be careful not to break off the “neck of the banjo”. That means you only pull straight out and rotate, never pull or twist sideways. If that fails, a diagonal pliers aka dikes aka wire cutters, can be used to cut the old fuel line, parallel to the hose, without cutting the banjo underneath. The cut does not need to go all the way through the old fuel hose, but far enough to weaken it.   

To service the float, loosen the clamp screw #20 and rotate the carb so it is tipped to the right. Remove the 11mm hex head banjo bolt. Remove the two slot head screws #18. Lift off the float top. Lift out the float with your fingers. It should lift out freely and not feel stuck.

Things that cause not enough gas:

Rust powder filling up the guide hole at the bottom of the float chamber. Remedy is twisting a correct size drill bit with your fingers, to pull the powder up and out of the hole. With the jet holder removed and the gas valve turned on, gasoline should flow out of the tank, through the float valve, and spill out the jet holder hole. The amount should be enough to fill the float reservoir in a few seconds, which is roughly a spoonful every 4 seconds.

The bulb being pushed too far down the rod. Remedy is to push it back up. See the above photo with measurements.

Dented float chamber wall. Remedy is to grind or sand down the high spot.

Blocked float reservoir air vent. Gasoline cannot come in unless air can get out. Remedy is to find where it is blocked at, and remove the blockage. The vent follows a channel in the back mounting surface. An empty float reservoir should fill up in a few seconds after the gas valve is turned on. To test for a blocked air vent, first empty the reservoir, then turn the gas valve on for 8 seconds and then off. Then remove the jet holder, allowing gas to dribble out, to see how much gasoline there was in the reservoir.

Blocked gas tank air vent. Gasoline cannot leave the gas tank unless air comes in. So there is a pin hole in the gas cap. When the tank is full, and the vent hole is blocked, the bike will seem to run out of gas. To test for a blocked gas cap vent hole, first fill the gas tank, then close the gas valve, then remove the fuel hose. Place a clean container under it (to check for purity and to put the gas back in the tank). Turn on the gas and observe the flow. It will flow normal at first. But in a few seconds, as negative pressure builds up, the flow will slow down and stop, if the vent is blocked. If the flow continues for 20-30 seconds (or indefinitely) then the gas tank is vented.

Things that cause too much gas:

Worn float needle tip. Remedy is to sharpen it. Examine the tip with a magnifier. Spin the float with a drill while pressing the tip gently against a sheet of emery cloth or very fine sandpaper, at the same angle, and move it slowly around to fresh parts of the sandpaper. The needle rod must be straight first. Examine the tip with a magnifier. There should be, everywhere on the cone tip, circular sanding marks, and no more circular “potholes”.

The needle is bent. Remedy is to straighten it. Normally the bend is just above the top of the bulb. It is done with just fingers and eyes. Rotate to see which way it needs to go. Bend a little. Repeat. 

The bulb being pushed too far up the rod. Remedy is to push it back down. See the above photo with measurements.

Worn float seat hole. The float valve seat is part of the float top. It is the tiny hole at the bottom of the small hole. Examine the hole with a magnifier. It should be perfectly circular and free of nicks and scratches. Polish it with a spinning tooth pick, or the stalk of a Q-tip. 

Float bulb has gasoline inside it. If the float too heavy, it won’t have enough buoyancy to stop the gasoline from getting in. Remedy is to evacuate the fuel with compressed air, locate the leak hole, and apply a minimal amount of fuel tank sealant. 

 

Servicing the M56 engine’s H12 or H8 Carburetor:

One problem unique to this carb is warping of the engine side surface. This is caused by over tightening the two mount bolts, and maybe also because the heat block behind it is semi-soft. The back side must seal not just air, for good idling, but also there is a fuel passage that can leak because of a warped carburetor body. The remedy is to grind the back side flat again, without taking too much off. In the body, there is a narrow fuel hole at the bottom of another hole, that is impossible to see directly. That hole must be checked and cleaned with carb spray and compressed air. 

The float is the same as the other carbs. The float top is the same except it has no air vent pin hole. The idea was to not let gas spill out the vent hole. Instead the vent goes to the mounting gasket, where there is a small opening to the atmosphere, higher up.

Welcome to Myrons Bing Carburetor Service. 

Sachs Bings can have long or short cable elbows.

Puch Bings can have long or short cable elbows.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sachs Bing Cable Elbows: Left photo above, left is the long carb elbow, used on KTM Foxi, Sparta Buddy, and most Sparta Foxi models. Right, is the short carb elbow used on other Sachs engine models. The Sachs elbows are 7mm, not 6mm threads like Puch ones. The bigger elbow allows the throttle cable small end to pass through the 6mm adjuster. So Sachs double-ended throttle cables do not come with adjusters. The adjuster stays with the elbow. Puch Bings have 6mm elbow threads, and 5mm adjuster threads, too small for the cable end to pass through. So Puch double ended throttle cables have the 5mm adjuster trapped in them.    

Puch Bing Cable Elbows: Right photo above, left is the long carb elbow, used on Maxi models, also with the black choke extension. Right, is the short carb elbow used on Magnum type models. The current aftermarket “Puch” throttle cables are made for the short carb elbow. They idle way fast if used with the long elbow, because the slide is not allowed to go fully down to idle. Myrons sells a long elbow throttle cable, for Puch Maxi, made from a modified “Puch” throttle cable. The wire needs to be about 12mm longer. The long elbow comes on Maxi type sheet metal frame models. The short elbow comes on Magnum type tube frames, such as Sears Free Spirit or JC Penney Pinto. The short elbow is so your foot does not hit it when you get on and off the bike. See the exploded view diagram below. Other Bing moped (under 15mm venturi) carburetors are the Sachs Bing, Kreidler Bing, Solo Bing, Tomos Encarwi, Batavus Encarwi, Trac Encarwi. Much bigger Bing carburetors are also on BMW, KTM, Penton, Sachs, Maico, DKW motorcycles, all made in or near Germany.

2. Carburetor Service Info Sheet

Below, the choke slide and throttle slide must be installed simultaneously. It is difficult. The throttle slide has a slot that must line up with a prong in the carb body. The top of the choke slide slides onto a deep wide notch at the bottom of the choke rod, so moving the choke rod moves the choke slide. It often gets left out or disconnected. When the choke slide is disconnected from the choke rod, the choke will be “on”, blocking off the air supply, whenever the throttle slide is down or closed. Normally when a Puch is given full throttle, the choke slide and rod are lifted all the way up until it clicks. The click is the choke rod clip #24 settling into the clip groove near the middle of the choke rod #23. When the throttle cable is not adjusted tight enough, the choke is not lifted all the way off, and it does not click until you manually reach down and pull up on the choke rod. When the throttle cable is adjusted too tight, the engine races and does not idle slow, even with the idle screw loosened all the way. See also General Carburetor Service and Jetting for how to clean and adjust carbs in general. 

 

White Flakes

These white flakes were the cause of a customer’s Puch not running. By chance a tiny spec broke off and lodged in the main jet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Bing Float Needles 

All “Bing Puch Carbs” have the slotted float type float needle with a rubber cone tip, except for some of the Sears Free Spirit 1/14/163  and 1/14/164 carbs, which have a Sachs Bing type float needle that does not lock into a slot in the float and has a metal cone tip.
