Carburator window

Recommended Posts

Hi

Can any one tell me what is this window for in the carburator?

I dont have one is it necessary?

When you say " I dont have one " Does that mean yours is a solid plate without the flap... or does it have a hole in it ?

Absolutely ! Without that flap, you don't have a choke.

You can look for a replacement choke plate without the flap or make one. The flap was known to come off and be eaten by the engine causing damage.

To answer the ops question it was a backfire flap, in the event of a backfire with the choke on it'd blow the window open instead of the carb out of it's boot.
