View Full Version : Carb linkage

My carb is missing the linkage piece the arrow is pointing to. Does anyone happen to have a spare?
Option B: If someone isn't flying yet could I borrow your linkage piece while I'm searching for one so I can be functional for my upcoming flying lessons?

I left mine off when I reassembled my carb Tim.
It's the linkage to the accelerator pump.
I use the accelerator pump as a primer when I first start it up.

It doesn't need it during regular oreration? I was using it to prime also but then I saw a photo in another thread where it was connected.

I left it off when I first rebuilt the carb several years ago, and it runs just fine.
Even with an abrupt throttle opening, it never misses a beat.
Some folks leave 'em on, some don't.

Sorry I didn't post last week but I was rushed trying to leave for Bensen Days. I found a linkage piece from a carb guy on ebay. Thanks Chuck.
