Carb rebuild - ball bearing weight

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Hope somebody can help...

I'm just finishing off a carb rebuild on my Turbo Esprit, fully stripped down and everything has gone together quite nicely, no parts left over at the end etc etc :) ...

However! I forgot to note which way round the pump jet weight fits onto the ball bearing. Which way round is it, picture 1 or picture 2?

Thanks in advance!!!

100% sure the springs belong there, they are connected to the weights, same on all 4 that came out ... but all the pictures I can find on the net (including the Dellorto parts diagram) show a solid bar with no spring. My car is an '84 and it's running the original DHLA40 carbs. I found an old thread of an '81 carb rebuild but that had the solid bars.

Cheers

Clicking on "part 50" on the dellorto website parts diagram it shows 3 different weights, 2 of which are discontinued. Mine appears to be one of those, the spring is also still available to buy, but nowhere does it tell in which order they are assembled! D'oh!   :(

Thanks chaps, my gut feel is the setup in picture 2, but I'll give Dellorto/Eurocarb a call tomorrow and see if they can clarify for sure. I'll let you know for future reference. Cheers

Just to update and hopefully help someone in the future... I spoke with Eurocarb this morning, and they very kindly sent me a diagram of the revised DHLA40 carbs which are in the Turbo Esprit's after ~1981(ish). This clearly shows the spring and weight config (parts labelled 42,43,44) hope that helps.
