This is a VERY rare, matched, set of Dellorto DHLA 48 carburetors.
This vintage set of 2 Dellorto DHLA48 carburettors has been lovingly restored to near its former glory.
It is the very rare version with 48 mm gas tubes and has not been modified throughout its working life of which is spent most of its time on a Rally Volvo PV544 (!).
Acquired by us last year, the restoration has just been finalized.
It was a nut & bolt restoration including new throttle shafts, new throttle valves, regringding the gas tubes, new needle valves and new bearings.
Of course it was finished off with new bright work where required and available and an original Dellorto factory rebuild kit with gaskets, washers and fuel resistant o-rings.
Of course this is the only set that we have available at the moment.
These carbs currently have the following basic set-up which can not be altered:
- Type: DHLA48
- Butterfly valves: 8563.1
- Idle mixture screw type: Open Springs
- Air bleed screws? No
- Progression holes: 3
Furthermore they currently have the following flexible set-up:
- Chokes: 42 mm
- Main jet: 155
- Main emulsion tube: 7772.6
- Air Corrector: 190
- Idle emulsion tube: 7850.1
- Idle jet: 60
- Pump jet: 42
- Jet covers: metal
Although these carburetors were for a long time used on a Volvo, they can of course be used on virtually any other make of engines, provided a suitable inlet manifold is used.
In that case, it will be required that the car / engine is tested and fine-tuned on a rolling road.
Please note that this set will be sold without any levers so that it can be tailored to your personal needs.
