I've got a 37W with a stock motor that currently has a Mikuni on it. I want to go back to a Linkert and I need help identifying one that I have. I've got Victory's Linkert book but don't see this model listed.

The top is stamped M31. It has a power needle on the right.

On the side with the low speed needle is molded "1 1/4 Mod M" with the numbers 2-338 under it. The second three is stamped in, the others are part of the casting.

The stock W carb was 7/8". Would this carb be too big?

Common 1-1/4" carb, will work fine. 7/8" is venturi size (not throttle disc size) for low-perf 45 W & G models.

Thanks for the info!

The throttle shaft is worn and the bushings need to be replaced. What's the best way to remove the old shaft bushings?

See Palmer's book for lots of useful stuff; if you haven't already got it: http://www.victorylibrary.com/books-amazon.htm#HTRYHD
