Puch Korado w/ round Bing carb?

Hey folks.

Trying to get this Puch Korado I picked up tuned and noticed I have a normal round Bing carb -- not the square kind that everyone else seems to have.

Anyone have any info about whether they were using two kinds of carbs back when?

Re: Puch Korado w/ round Bing carb?

I imagine it's probably just been swapped. It probably makes it easier to get parts for.

Re: Puch Korado w/ round Bing carb?

Round bings are easier to source jets and air systems for; otherwise, there is no difference really in the two. Keep your round.

Stock is a square bing 17 model it's 14mm ID

Hope they swapped a 14mm not a 12mm round carb

Re: Puch Korado w/ round Bing carb?

Yeah, I'm not mad about it all. Rather have the round like a normal Maxi.

It's just weird because the engine case seems to be cut out for a round one.

Pretty sure that's what's happened here, just curious about how it seems to sit so perfectly within the engine case.

It's a 1/15/46 round, so we're rocking a 15mm then.
