1937 Terraplane Carb

I'm in need of the perculator lid for my Carter W1 carburator, tag #34SS. If anyone could point me in the right direction where I might find and purchase it would be much appreciated. Would buy a complet carb if necessary. Mine is working fine other than the lid has broken.

    Not sure what pert you are referring to as that is not listed on the carter carb sheet for #344.  The body of these carbs are virtually identical for many years.  Really the only differences are in the jets and rods.  So if it is part of the body of the carb look for another Carter carb with similar numbers and see if the part is there.

    Is this what you are talking about?  I was told they were a one year only thing & discontinued due to creating fires from gas leaking.

    So the part pictured is a dash pot.  It is on 37 - 40 carbs.

    If you need a part call "The Carburetor Shop LLC".  just google them.....  I was talking to the guy a few years ago when I did my twin H carbs and discovered he purchased all the prototype tooling from Carter years ago.  So he can make/remake any brass or other part for the carbs except the cast parts.  He also has all the new gaskets.  He may have what you need.  Good source for matching jets and metering rods.

    I have a complete and working Carter W1 and a selection of spare parts that I'd like to sell as one lot. It was on my 34 Hudson. Email me if you're interested -  delythrh@btinternet.com
