clamp style dellorto loose on intake

You can see towards the end of this video that the carb slides over the intake too easily; even when it is tightened down all the way:

The OD of the intake measures 23.5-24mm. I have a 19mm dellorto. I'm not sure what the ID of the carb is though.

Any thoughts on how to make the two fit?

get a new intake.

Re: clamp style dellorto loose on intake

The kit comes with two intakes:

I don't know that I can get anything different.

The fit is close. It just doesn't quite make it. Are there any good ways to shim it?

Re: clamp style dellorto loose on intake

You need a shim... what's the id of the carb manifold vs. the intake?

Re: clamp style dellorto loose on intake

I can measure the ID of the carb when I get home. Where can I get a shim? Does someone make/sell them?

Re: clamp style dellorto loose on intake

I've purchased some of those shims from Seattle Mopeds back when it was owned by Kevin, now that 1977 owns it, they will probably direct you to Dellorto direct, which does not have them, but I'll bet you can get them ordered. Might have to makes some calls.

Re: clamp style dellorto loose on intake

Benji has different shims. I'd give him a call.

Re: clamp style dellorto loose on intake

I emailed benji. The carb ID is 24mm and the OD of the intake is 23.5mm. It's just enough so that it won't tighten down.
