 asking for a mate who has a 1926 ew 350 , he wants to swap to a amal or some else for his ew as the original carbs are fairly worn out , which carbs would be a good fit .. thanks

My preference would be to rebuild the original, but if he wants an AMAL the spec would be similar to the AMAL used on the 350 in 1930, below.

There's a guy in Australia who builds new AMALs to spec - he does the swap meets but I don't know his name/business. These would be the slightly later "276" style. Not sure if he can do them as small as the 4/007.

tried looking up the 4/007 on the amal site but nothing there so mustnt stock parts for it anymore so might be the same trouble as the b and b carbs , have been given a lead on a bloke in qld by a member that i will have to check out

The "4" changed from bronze to alloy and became the "74", then later this became the "274". You might find a new 274, but I'd prefer the original B&B.
