Carter 539s bowl

Post by Eddie Holland » Mon Oct 19, 2020 11:17 am

Anyone have a good Carter 539s bowl. I sent 3 to be rebuilt and it appears none of the 3 were useable.

I have discovered a company that makes reproduction ones that I might order from. I am going to see if I can get the jet out first when it is shipped back. It was just an individual I see on Facebook that rebuilds several of the old carbs.

You can send them to me. A good rebuilder would not have problems getting stuck jets out of a carb. I can do the proper rebuilt for you when needed

He said someone had tried to get the jets out and nothing was left to get hold of to get them out. He said another was stripped..

I'd be happy to take a look at them. No charge.

Did not use proper tools or drills then. Don’t scrap them yet as some things can get repaired or reversed. But you just have to know what you do. As Scoutpilot doesn’t charge the inspection I have to offer for it I guess But think he also can help you better then the guy you sended it to is doing now.

I sent to him also and he could not fix. I guess I will buy a new reproduction.
