Re: Carb for FVP

Now I have the correct original carb and the curled fuelline but I thought they would send it complete.
It misses the bowl for the airintake and the fuelconnector.
So, searching again for that.

Re: Carb for FVP

Thanks to John from SOS I could buy the original carb V508 and the fuel line from Villiersparts.
So, the restoration can start when the post has delivered and I have been to Jan to get the other stuff.
Thanks to all.

Re: Carb for FVP

But does anyone know the type number of this carb?
That makes searching a little easier.

Re: Carb for FVP

Could this be the correct carb? The same as a LLS carb?
If so then I have at least a typenr. V508C

Re: Carb for FVP

And then of course boating on an old classic boat with a Seagull in Amsterdam or another old city, producing a nice blue walm.
Drinking dutch beer and singing some sailorsongs.
I think you will be surprised of the attention you will get, right Jan?

Re: Carb for FVP

Charles, Thanks a lot for your description. Had a bit trouble translating this technical English but I think I understand it. I am sure we can manage to make that. But given the message of Jan it may not be necessary anymore. Jan, Do you mean that I can buy from you that uppercase from the crankcase...

Re: Carb for FVP

Goodmorning Jon,

As I understood the carb on the SJM should fit too, so of course I will try that one.
I will adjust it as you suggest.
But still I will keep looking for the original.

Thanks

Re: Carb for FVP

Yes, you are right with this scheme. This is the way we (my son in law, picture) want to try to fix it. We will tap a screw-thread (is that English??) for a bolt of 8-10 mm. Not deeper then 10 mm. De rest according your scheme. Thanks for that nice piece of drawingwork. I hope it will work. I intend...

Re: Carb for FVP

So, beyond repairing the tillerstub I will have to search for the original carb.
I hope it is in the store of SOS.
And I will search the web.

As I need more spares like a propellor for a 1960 SJM and several parts for my FV I have quite a job to do.

Re: Carb for FVP

Thanks, now I see it. We need to mount a stub on it. My son in law is mechanicien and thinks he can fix it. He wants to tap a thread in it and screw a stub on it with a bolt. Then it should be possible to put a tiller in it with a pin. I hope it works and will let you know via this forum. But now th...

Re: Carb for FVP

Thans for all your advices and offers to help me. I appreciate that very much. I will first try to fix it as original as possible. Comparing several pictures it seems to me that the stub is not broken or sawed, but just filled with malleable steel. I found this picture and this gives me the idea tha...

Re: Carb for FVP

Friends, yesterday I was happy to get the FVP in my shed. It looks very good, not too rusty, just dusty. Tank is a bit dented. It has good spark, so ignition works. First things to do and ask you all are: 1. bringing back the tiller to the original one we plan to make a stub by tapping a thread in t...

Re: Carb for FVP

Keith, a very nice website you have.
I am looking for a wartime 102 too.
It is for sure waiting for me in some shed, somewhere in the Netherlands
