thanks for the ID, maybe a body trade-hate to
lose a complete rebuild.

Biggest difference between 344 and M51 is probably the main nozzle - compare this with any H-D and you'll see how much work Indian put into getting their mixture curves right. There's a different nozzle for each motor size & tune; H-D uses 1 nozzle for all 1-1/4" carbs regardless of application.

this explains why i had so many different size and shape, and base metal nozzles to
fit the the l&l 1 1/4.
all i could gleen from flat track tuners
was we changed them around quit a bit in various assemblies.
I have just learned M-344, 1944 being the first year it could have been used through to
1947, then the M-348 comes into play.
