Re: m53a1

Not that high but still worth more then a non bomb site.

Last year i regularly saw A1's going in the $200-$350 range . I snagged one for my K for $150 then spent a few $$ putting in all new parts. NOS part in OH had most of them, I've got the rubber ducky float waiting to go in.

I'd be willing to bet that if you got all the new parts and a used core spent time cleaning and fitting all the parts while keeping track of your time you'd be in the $500 range.

Don't forget though, the M53-A1 doesn't have the bombsite from stock - just the "sleeve" type venturi.

Re: m53a1

That's correct, M53= bombsight, M53-A1= no bombsight.

Re: m53a1

Your corect my K came with an A1 but should of had the M53 bomb site carb.
Legends has it many bobm site carbs were swaped out at dealers by racers / mechnics.

Re: m53a1

I picked up a rebuilt M-53 with bombsight at a local swapmeet a few years ago for $200.. it was a deal then. Have seen just the bombsights used go for between $100-150 on e-bay.. with no guarantee that they aren't sandblasted out of dimension by someone running without an aircleaner, or just well used beyond usability... might be a good time for an aftermarket product.
When they're running you out of town.. get out in front and make it look like a parade.

Re: m53a1

I just listed my M53A1 on eBay.
I might as well see what I can get for it while the others are either way over priced or somewhat ugly.
