2 stroke vs. 4 stroke carbs?

What is the difference between a two stroke and a 4 stroke carb, i was going to put a 20mm dellorto on my moped off of dellorto direct, but it says that it is a 4 cycle carb??? Can i still buy it??

Re: 2 stroke vs. 4 stroke carbs?

i dont know the difference but why not just get one that says its for a 2 stroke? It doesnt matter how big the carb is, if its bigger than ur intake the intake is ur choke point, might as well call it that size. So feel free to get a 21mm carb instead.

Re: 2 stroke vs. 4 stroke carbs?

the difference for dellortos are the floats are different weights and the diffuser design is slightly different.

Re: 2 stroke vs. 4 stroke carbs?

Is the float a different weight because gas/oil mix has a different buoyancy? The diffuser a different design because gas/oil has a different viscosity?

I would have thought that carbs for 2 or 4 stroke engines would be nearly identical, and now I want to find out why I thought this...
