Ordering Older S&S® Carburetor Replacement Parts

When ordering parts for older S&S carburetors, it is necessary to determine the correct style of float, needle and bowl. S&S has used two different mechanisms to connect the float to the inlet needle.

Forked Mechanism: Older style that utilizes a forked float tang, which slides into a slot in the top of the needle.

Wire Mechanism: Current style that features a needle with a wire hook which attaches to the tang of the float.

Parts of differing styles may not be used together. For example, although the carburetor bowls of the two styles look very similar, they are not interchangeable due to differences in the float retaining pin position. Some parts are no longer available for carbs with forked style mechanisms. If these parts must be replaced, the entire bowl assembly must be replaced with wire mechanism style components.
