Really?... I would have thought the 30 would run way too rich... Any idea if theres any performance difference?
I *did* notice the #26'S HAVE A 1.07" bore, & the #30 has a 1.2"... and my K301 block has a 1.35" intake bore vOv

I've run a #30 on my 100 for 20 years, LOL
Adjust the carb accordingly.

Old Hotrodders trick. BOLT A BIGGER CARB ON HER
 
Welllll.... So it seems the one time i didnt do my research, and I forgot there is a ball & spring at the end of the choke shaft, which proceded to fly.. *somewhere*, across the garage when I pulled the shaft out of the newer #30, so I could replace it with the one from the #26. I did find the spring, but not that ball.
So, *then*, I broke the first brass shaft screw on the #26, trying to remove the choke plate.

Batted a 1000 last nite.

Anyone know where/if I can get the ball & replacement screws?
I checked CC Specialties, but dont see them listed on the site.
 
You need to file the exposed threaded end of those tiny #4 brass screws off before attempting to remove them as they are "staked" in place so as not to vibrate out.

May as well look for another carb now.
 
McMaster-Carr will have the brass screws and bearing ball. They might have something that'll work for the spring, too.
