I hope some of you ventren ped owners can help.

I have a 1978 Puch/Sears Free Spirit.

The bike came with 1/14/xxx carb

I've found some parts I needed, but others are hard to find.

Therefore I've started looking for new/used carbs on eBay and other sites like this one.

The problem is that most of the carbs are 15mm or 12mm

Therefore, what will I have to do to modify these carbs to fit my ped.

I'm "assuming" that the difference in the carb sizes comes from the intake size.

Therefore, if I bolt a 15mm carb on my bike that uses a 14mm will I have to step down the metting jet and/or adjust the float level?

Please cc any replies directly to my work address... sreisdor@ford.com

Thanks in advance!

Sean
