    Default Tillotson Carb Spares Needed!

    Does anyone have or know where I can get a Tillotson carb inlet pipe/cover from please?



    Its a round piece of plastic that fits on the carb where the fuel supply line connects to it. I discovered they can be a bit fragile and shear off fairly easilly!



    Thanks in advance for any help!



    [color = red]Finally found the broken one to get a pic of it! It is about 35mm diameter[/COLOR]

    Hi David



    Local garden machinery suppliers or Karting spares are probably the best bet, found one here:

    Not sure if they are universal size.



    Unfortunately I threw a complete one away a couple of months ago, sorry! Kept it for nearly 20 years just in case. Just shows you should never throw anything away!!!



    Hope this helps

    Hi,



    http://www.askec.net/forums/viewforum.php



    have loads of info and suppliers (mostly USA) for Tillotsons.



    http://www.tillotson.ie is the manfacturers website with more info plus parts but they tend to only have newish spares.



    If, like mine, your carb is an old one then they've redesigned it and parts like the gasket/seal sets don't fit now.



    I changed my carb to one off a Lambretta...I just had to make a new manifold for it.



    Regards

    Peter

    David, have you more details on the carb? whats it fitted to? how old? I'll call to the Tillotson plant and check it out if you can get me more details. Philip

    Hi Philip,



    I don't have access to the craft and/or carb at the moment, all I know is it's a Weslake lift engine.



    Having looked at the part again, a quick repair as suggested above will suffice until I come across a new one.



    I tried the karting place as mentioned above but there isn't enough info to be sure its the right part, plus there will be more postage than the part costs itself!



    The Tillotson website is quite useful but I need to get more info about the carb before finding the right part.



    Thank you to those who have offered help or ideas.
