A gentleman from Scotland, UK contacted us about restoring the original Carburettor on his Mk1 RS2000

The car was undergoing a full, ‘concours’ ground-up restoration so everything had to be perfect!

This carburettor has a water-choke/autochoke mechanism and is of the two-stage, progressive, downdraught type. Good performance with reasonably good drive-ability and fuel-economy.

The choke-mechanism is the most intricate part of this carburettor – also the most troublesome.

Thankfully the carburettor in question was in relatively good condition (despite being 40 years old!)

 

So, as soon as we received it – We got straight to work on it!

Here are some photos of the carburettor and dis-assembly:

The carburettor was complete, and in working order.
Careful dis-assembly was now on the cards…
