EW350 Carburettor
« on: 30 Jun 2012 at 17:10 »
Hello, according to the documentation the carburettor is a Brown & Barlow.

Do you know if Douglas used an other supplier ? Because on my EW (from september 1926), the carburettor is an Amac (anyway the float chamber, no label on the body).

Thank you for your explanations.

Michel.

Hello Michel, according to a 1930 Amal parts book which includes Amac, there is a bit with "special amac carburetter for E. W. Douglas T. 30 W" which includes a cutaway diagram and parts list which I could post when some computer savvy person comes home,

I read on the carburettor the inscription 30JPY B1515. What that means ?

Michel,

That is a standard touring model AMAC for 1926-27. The 30 denotes a 7/8" throttle valve.

I am not sure what the difference is between the T30W and the T30PJY AMAC would be. The T30W is in the same family as the T30PJY, so I imagine the two types are very similar.

Hi  Michel, If you google AMAC carburetter, you will find a site  (archives.jampot.dk) which has an entry Amac Carburettors 1923-28 which shows a parts list for the T30W, and also the T30PJY, which seems to relate to the fitting of a bottom feed float chamber to a standard T30 clip mounted body. It appears the float chamber was fitted to the T30W was similar. The difference between the T30W and the T30PJY seems that  the T30W carb. body had a a screwed ring nut and packing fitting where it attaches to the induction pipe rather than the more usual clip fitting as fitted to the T30PJY, and of course the T30W was supplied with a curved hot air pipe which was held in place by a screwed retaining ring.  Hope you find all this of some assistance.  Regards Steve L.
