Mikuni Carburettor Id Thread - Phh

Recommended Posts

So just thought I'd share some tips on how to identify a 40mm carb vs 44mm carb.


1. 40mm carbs often have an extra retaining fastener on the bottom (front of the intake portion). Where as 44's are usually blank.





2. Just by looking at the throttle plates you can often tell what size they are.




3. Ideally the seller shows a photo of the throttle plate stamping, which will read 1.75inch (44mm) or 1.65inch (40mm). I tried to find a reference photos for 50's but couldn't see 1.



Of course carbs have been messed around with over the years, taper bore etc.. so use this post as a guide but not the gospel. This is just what I've picked up hunting down carbs on various classified sites over the last year or so..

You're probably unlikely to encounter these in the wild given rarity. But these were fitted to the Toyota 2000GT MF10

Mikuni Solex 2 type N40 PHH


Where they fitted to anything else? I picked up a pair of these on gumtree late last year. No sign of the third though..

Yes I'm sure they were fitted to other cars, as I've seen a couple on Gumtree.com.au before and so there must have been another car that got them. I just don't know what car it was.
