  • Search for a float for Carter WE Carb

    Hi Stude-friends!

    I'm looking for a new float for the Carter WE carburetor installed in my 1949 Studebaker Champion Regal Deluxe Starlight Coupe. At the old carb gasoline gets in and after I drove my Stude quite a while and try to restart it, the carb gets flooded.

    Studebaker West and Studebaker International weren't able to help me with my search for a new part.

    Now maybe some of you guys can help? This would be beautiful.

    All the best,

    http://www.carburetor.ca/carbs/floats/f57.htm You could also try locating the float for an older Willy's Jeep carb, model WO. (WWII MB & early civilian models)

      Hi Leyrret,

      the float in my WE-Carb looks different... [?]

      Bests,

        Having not seen the float or the carb, I make the assumption that it is a brass float.

        That being the case, also assuming the securing apparatus to be okay and just the floating part to leak, can't it just be soldered to repair it?

        http://www.thecarburetorshop.com/Troubleshooting.htm

        And if not, can the brass float from another similar one, be used by soldering it to the old securing apparatus?

          I have soldered leaky floats. It's a bit tricky in that you have to immerse part of the float in icewater to keet the air inside from bubbling out and defeating the solder patch job.

          I can look and see if I have an old WE lying about.

          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

              Do you want a good used one? I just took a carb off
              a running engine. You said "new", so I wasn't sure.

                Try, Dave Thibeault. See TW's for his telephone number.

                  A good used one would also be fine as long as it is working fine and the price is fine too. Talked to a guy from my neighbourhood yesterday. He wants to take a quick look at the float, if he can repair it.

                    Let me know, and I will open this one up (carb) and see if it's what you need.
