    Hello members ...I had purchased a refurbished Linkert M741- 1 carb, set up for a 45” Scout.  I’m unable to recall what size venturi it had.  I have now fitted a 13/16 venturi.  Can anyone tell me if this will suit.  Thanks in advance.

    Hey Danny, yup, that should be perfect, same size venturi used on 45 cube scheblers. 

    Only issue you may have with a linkert is the float bowl can sit very close to cylinders, boiling gas in the carb. ( The linkert float bowl is a little squared in vertical section when compared to the schebler.) Just had just this problem with a friends bike, which now has my schebler sitting on it until ........ 

    Used to make a spacer kit with George,1/4inch , works well. Sort of have some more in the pipeline. Pipeline can be kinda long around here at the moment tho.

    I have chamfered the bowl at two points, to prevent contact with heads, giving some 1/8 inch clearance at both barrels.  Hopefully that will be enough.  The Linkert body does not appear to have an air hole near the idle jet boss.  Nor does a hole appear on the high speed jet side of the body, which is unlike the Scheblers.  I did notice one hole, underneath the body, where the bowl adapts.  None are visible externally, once the bowl is fitted.  Is that a schebler bowl fitted to the Linkert body that you imply Tim ?  Also, is the spacer kit you used to make with George, a spacer that fits between the inlet manifold and carb throttle end ?
