Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

I am in trouble with my S6 and would like to get a needle & jet for the amal 5/116/s carb
Has anyone got any idea where i might be able to get them?

Evening Alan
There is an on line catalogue
They are reproducing some of the pre war Amal carbs and parts; you might just be lucky!


Hi Alan
As far as I know the carburettor fitted to the S and T6 models and derivatives was unique to these Douglas models. The needle is very short. Some years ago Doug Kephart approached the original Amal works and was given two drawings for the needle, one was for the needle for new production, the other for modification of an existing needle used on other models. As Spares Secretary for the LDMCC at the time using these drawings I had a batch of needles made for the Club spares stock. I had them made by Martyn Bratby, well known carburettor specialist and I believe he kept some for his own use. I cannot help with the jet but Martyn may be able to advise.

I cannot help with the jet ...

AMAL literature for 1930 lists a 120 jet for the 5/116/S. I suppose it's a standard AMAL jet?
