I get quite a lot of emails about people requesting information and work to be done on carburetors, repairs, restorations, where to get spares. This blog I’m devoting to carburetor identification. I would like to share with you the reader. the email conversations and images that get exchanged.

I have here a couple of brass carburetors, I wonder would you know what they were from and how best I would place them as I would hate for them to go to scrap should someone need the part. Photo’s attached, I think the smaller one is a Smiths, like on your website?
Hi Darren we often get requests for carb identification. I think both of these carbs are from stationary engines of single or v twin configuration. the makers of the carbs didnt allways put there names on the castings. you will find that carbs fitted to all cars would be sporting there names on the carb bodies. hope this helps and will give you some leads. cheers terry.

Hi Terry I have an old carburetor which I have no idea the make , year or what it is off. I have googled for years on and off with no luck on finding anything similar, whilst googling I came across your web page and wondering if you would possibly know what this is please.
Due to the lack of controls I think these are from a Honda stationary engine.
