Project C10 – For the love of Amal


I’m not a fan of working on carburettors. My biggest problem is with the fiddly little pieces, which I am pretty sure are designed to shoot out on disassembly and disappear into the ether. Amal carbs got it right though, long long ago. A flathead screwdriver and spanner, and the whole things comes apart quite easily. Can see why riders used to be more likely to do any carburettor work themselves. Remove two bolts and a fuel line, then you can take it off and strip it down. Simplicity itself, a ten minute job to pull it down and put it back together, with a minimum of moving parts that could go wrong.

Definitely my type of automotive component design.
