With the carb kits, are the NOS ones any good? I mean, I got one (NOS military issue) and the carb is having problems after only one year. The diaphram on the accelerator pump is dry rotted. I am looking for a new kit too, it seems like the guy in Canada has fresh kits and standard shipping. Is the Memphis Equipment one comparative or is it just NOS too?

Along the same lines, I wonder if they're not using materials in the NOS stuff that are adversely affected by modern fuels, eh?

It would seem that way, and most here will agree that the NOS fuel pump kits have that problem.

If you need it, I'll see if I can dig up the receipt and get it.
I know this post is almost 1-1/2 yr old, but....
I'm trying to rebuild a carb and bought a 1920 kit off ebay - HYGRADE #533A. BORG WARNER #10344A, CARTER 902-755A - which is exactly what I had seen referenced somewhere else. Anyway, seems like I can use most everything except the accelerator pump. It looks like the one on the right. Any chance you might still be able to find the part number for the correct pump? My local small-town NAPA isn't too good unless you have a part #.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
Just starting on my "new to me" '67.

Go in there and ask one of the counter guys to see the picture book for the Echlin carburetor kits. He may balk, but they should have one on hand. It will give the actual pictures of the components that are available seperately like floats, accelerator pump diaphragms, etc. Echlin does this with all their electrical components as well.

It may take a bit of time to look through them all, but you should be able to come up with the part you need.

Most counter guys now don't want to do much if the computer can't do it for them, so you're kind of on your own there. Even more so when the part in question is older than the kid behind the counter.

Thanks!
I did just that - went and asked for the picture book. I found one that looks right and was listed as being for a '63-'65 Jeep. There were 2 somewhere in Virginia, so when it gets here I'll let you know if it works and what the part # is.

NAPA part # is 2-4147. Shaft and notch are identical, and re-assembly seemed perfect. Thanks Randy!

Glad to be of help....sometimes a little time spent in the old-fashioned book makes all the difference!
