1967 Mustang 6-200 with AutoLite 1100 1-V Carburator

Post #1 by J Thompson » Fri Dec 31, 2010 1:15 pm

My carb is missing the accelerating pump discharge weight (#95811 in my shop manual parts diagram) I am unable to locate a replacement at parts supplier or in any rebuild kit I have seen.
Carb is fine otherwise. Would appreciate suggestions I may have overlooked OR information I might use to fabricate a replacement.(ie: length, diameter, material). I'm thinking steel or brass
rod of proper length and approximate diameter of steel ball it rests on. Would appreciate your opinion and advice.

Hope you've found a solution by now, but if not, you might try looking for a junked 1100 1V carb at a junkyard or ebay - you don't necessarily need one in working condition or rebuilt.

I am kind of intrigued on why that part wasn't in your carb, lol.

Good luck.

Thanks for the response. The motor has been recently replaced and the carb had been rebuilt. Evidently somehow 2 of the 3 steel balls and the one weight were lost. I replaced the balls from a rebuild kit but could not find a weight. I had a response from a really helpful Mustang Man who sent me protographs of the balls and weights alongside a ruler with an estimate of the weight of the weight. I found one of my wife's knitting needles of comparable diameter to the weight, cut off a piece 9/16 " long and stuck it in the slot. Haven't had a chance to test it yet (it's at another location) but feel optimistic it will work. Will post results later in case anyone is interested.
Thanks for your interest.
