Carb Main-Jet (Nozzle) Difference?

Recommended Posts

superbman101

Hey Guys I've always wanted to know the actual difference between:

390950 (Labeled B)(#40 Jet) Used Before Code Date 81101200

691966 (Labeled B) Used After Code Date 81101100

Could you interchange them? The only thing I've noticed are the number of holes in the main-jet. Is this because the new (1981+) have a larger sloped intake tube? Very puzzling sm00

I think there is a length difference in the nozzel. Larry8200 had a post on this a year or two ago. So you should beable to find it in a search. I have both kits, but to cold to go out and measure.

I've been digging around yes the length is the difference.

390950 (OLDER) 2.534"

691966 (NEWER) 2.749"

both are same size holes (4 of them)

Thanks Ray :P

I don't know if it does make a difference in pulling or not? I pull with the older short one and it seams to be fine for me. I have a 91 16hp I/c that's really got a touchy throttle. I'd go with the newer of the two if you have one because parts will be easy to get ahold of years from now

....My observation shows 3 fuel delivery holes in one and 4 in the other. The air bleed holes seem to be the same but I will have to measure them again to refresh my memory. No disagreement with length difference.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
