Linkert "M" carburetor same as M74 carb

#1

Post by xcaret »

i have a 1959 pan and need a carb (linkert M ) thats all the manual calls it.The manual starts at 1959 to 1969 I can get one on ebay but they call them M74 not just M.
Does anyone have an older manual that will have the info I need I dont plan to build an absolute correct 1959 pan and if linkert M74 works I will go with it ..I just dont know what bikes it came out on..
Thanks

M74 Linkert is a Pan carb. I restored a 57 Fl & that was the correct carb.
Cotten, is the Linkert "Guru" hopefully he will stop by & make this more clear...
Correction, the 57 I did had a M-74B My mistake. Sorry.

Thanks Jack, wasn't sure for 59 & wasn't in the mood to go out & dig out that Manual.

I don't have my Palmer's handy, but I believe that M74 was 1951 only.
Thereafter, they were M74B.
(I'm not certain when the "B" stamp got larger, perhaps not until the last of the bronze bodies in '65.)

Correction, to my earlier post about a M-74. It was in fact an M-74B on that 57 Pan I mentioned.
I don't know what the differences might be ?? Yet, other than what is correct for a specific year. But Linkert's are not my specialty. But I'm learning!!! ;D
The M-74 came on later 1950-early 51 F & FL
The M-74B came on later '51 -1965 F & FL
The differences, I find is the M-74 fixed jet size is #17
& the M-74B fixed jet size is #19
Actually even their HD part # is same for both 27130-48
This according to My Palmers...

I tried to contact your email directly. I recieved an error mees so it might not have been delievered so Ill post the message here. i have a excellent condition M74B from the manifold out. inculding copper mesh air filter,a HD air cleaner cover, org. manifold not colony!!! I do not have the gas filter though. You may find a cheaper one on ebay, but not a better one. Ill take $300 for it no bargining thats the price they are getting too hard to find in this condition.
