How To Select An Amal Concentric Carburetor

How To Select An Amal Concentric Carburetor

Choosing a new carburetor for your vintage British motorcycle can be challenging and confusing as parts over the years often get changed

Although all Amal Concentric (MK1) carbs look the same, internally they are not 

Understanding the challenges one may face, I was motivated to compile a simple yet effective chart below that will aide you when purchasing a new Amal Concentric carburetor from Classic British Spares or perhaps selecting an original carburetor for your application 

We understand that this topic could be discussed in great lengths, however we will keep it short and to the point which will help “most” folks make the proper choice when seeking a new Amal Concentric carburetor 

Before we go over our chart, we hope that you check your parts book, workshop manual and your manifold to help you identify what carb you may need

Workshop manuals and parts books

Workshop Manuals & Parts Books

Did you know that a factory workshop manual and a factory parts book will list the proper carburetor that was fitted to a specific machine?

When in doubt, grab a workshop manual or a parts book for your year, make and model and find the carb size that was originally fitted to your machine

Manifolds

Measuring Inlet Port BSA C15

Should you have the proper manifold on your motorcycle, it is important to measure the inside diameter to obtain a reading either in metric (for Amal Concentric carbs) or imperial / inch (for Amal Monobloc carbs)

Using the measurement from your manifold, it will aide you in finding the proper carb - please keep in mind that some manifolds taper and some manifolds may have a different bore size than the carb that would normally be fitted

Those that do not have an external or "bolt on" manifold, you can measure the opening of the inlet port (shown above)

Cylinder head casting numbers

Triumph Cylinder Head Casting Number

Often times hidden and hard to find, a casting number can provide you with much information in regards to the identity of the given head and also the port size

Always check your casting number first to find the original origins of your cylinder

Your specific application

 

Dual Carb Triumph Race Engine

Having good judgment also helps when making a carb selection

Knowing your engine specs and overall condition (stock, modified, cams, pistons, etc) may give you a good idea as to what can be fitted to your engine

    @Laurent – I do not have any specs on the Vincent models – I do not have the answer of why the cut-out is provided. Perhaps someone with more info can shed some light on that subject.
