This carburetor appeared on eBay this morning. I have been looking at it all day trying to figure out what the heck it goes to.  That mounting pattern is what has me, it is 90 off of the normal style for a float carburetor.

 

Something about it reminds me of something I have seen, but I can't remember where I saw it!  Take a look, does anyone know what this came off of?

Looks like an AMAL carb off a small Simar. It has the barrel style throttle where the cable would have went in through the top for the throttle and pulled up and down.

I just did a search and that is what it is.  Looks like it should say AMAL along the bowl.  I guess it is more of a UK carburetor, then.

Yes, Amal carbs almost always used a "tickler".  The tickler is in the 1st pic I posted.  It's the little post coming up from the carb body beside

the slide.  You push it down and it holds the float down to flood the carb throat, acting like a choke to deliver a rich fuel supply for cold startup.

New Restorer's Simar, Dec TOTM, has the same carb. A picture of it can be found here.  http://gardentractor...ember-2013-r162
