I need a carb for 1980 50v motobecane

I am looking for a carb for my motobecane mobylette 50v. I would prefer a gurtner, as im not so sure i want to switch over to a dellotoro, but if a 15:15 already jetted comes avaliable im might be interested.

If you have a carb please reply with how much you want for it.

thanks,

Kyle

Just get the gasket kit for your intake you should be fine!

I found out by pulling my carb apart that the float was half full of gas and the needle has been bent before my ownership, also the brass screw under the jet is striped out( also the last owner) its missing the small filter that goes next to the float. The airbox is also cracked.So my carb is pretty toast.

I have a gurtner that is good for parts - let me check tomorrow and make certain that it has all the parts you need. as far as I know, the only thing wrong with it is that the thread for the airbox is stripped, but the actual plastic airbox is OK. I think it would work perfectly for you (as parts).

Ok

Heres the deal, everyone complains about gurtners because they cant figure out how to clean them.

What you have to do is take the carb apart again. Take the brass nut type think out of the bottom of the carb, then take a small screw driver and remove the retaining nut that is up behind that nut. then with that out take the throttle slide out and take a rod and press the brass aerator out from the top. That is likely your problem. There are a couple very small holes on the side of that piece. Take some fine wire and run it through there and clean them out. Also run a wire through the idle passage. You will be good.

I have a mint carb for you, $30 shipped, factory gurtner and the intake for an extra 5 if you want.

I just changed to a 15:15.

Was fine, i just wanted a bigger carb.
