S&S Super B Carb Accelerator Pump Install ????
« on: February 09, 2018, 04:20:48 PM »
A friend just got a kit to install an accelerator pump in a Super B carb and it came with no instructions  :wtf:
Anybody know how? Believe it or not there is no you tube.
Thanks
SR
Patience is such a waste of time .

Anybody remember the kit from maybe 35 or so years ago, that gave you a Mikuni accelerator pump, a cam that fastened to the throttle shaft, you drilled a hole for the nozzle in the side of the carb body, you used two 530 chain link plates to mount the pump to two float bowl screws?  :hyst:

It didn't work that well.

   I still have the drilling fixture, and it uses a Bendix accel. pump plunger. Its WAY back in my tool box, but I believe it was for a new bowl in the kit. It was definitely a band-aid solution to combat other carbs with a pump, and primarily was the most use for starting. But there are tricks to make a "B" better, If jetted right, a small notch could be filed in the butterfly by the transfer port to blend the transition. Or use a bubble type primer for easier starts.

It looked exactly like a mouse trap!    :hyst:

I forgot to add, you drilled and tapped the bowl drain plug for a tiny hose nipple, to feed the pump. I wish I could find a pic of it, it was something else.
