ED hunter mark 4 carburetor
« on: February 21, 2021, 10:15:22 AM »
Hi folks ,I own a ed hunter for decades and only recently got it running with a modified os carburetor, but its difficult to start.
I'm wondering if someone has a carb for sale or drawings of one?
Cheers

Hi Dan, The Ed 3.46 Hunter is a particular favourite  :ThumbsUp:

I haven't got a spare carb nor a drawing as such but some time back I made a 5cc version - heres a pic of the carb parts which were copied directly off an original Hunter.



These were made to a scale of 1.13 the original.

I have a PDF file of the backplate showing the carb at that scale but not sure how to attach it - Pm your email and I'll send you it

Hello Dan - Received your PM

I just tried to send you an email but it has returned. It appears to be due to a change over of servers this last week. I thought I had sorted it but apparently not so. I don't really have much idea about such things so that might be a while

Can any one help me get a PDF up on here for Dan ?

Regards - Tug

Hi Ramon

How's life?

Regarding the pdf file I can see that it is attached to your post with the photo of the carb.

Hello Vince, It's still good but slowing down a bit now  ::) Hope you are enjoying that retirement  :ThumbsUp:

I can see the attachment now, thanks. When I added the attachment, once in the box there was nothing to say insert or such so I assumed it hadn't worked.

There you go then Dan - the attachment of the drawing is at the bottom of my reply. That should get you what you want - just divide the dimensions by 1.13 and that will be the original specs. Unfortuntely I don't appear to have a drawing of the needle valve assembly (may be on another computer that isn't set up at the moment) so can't help there for now

You're welcome Dan.

Let us know how you get on and watch those fingers - an ED 3.46 has a good reputation for biting!

I don't know what it is about the Hunter but I have always found it to be a very attractive engine - Since building my 5cc version I now have three of the original size!

Good luck with yours - Tug

Thanks for the help Tug,I turned the carb as you advised!and I have learned how to start it really well!
Only one black finger nail!ha ha.
But...the other day three of the four cylinder bolt heads sheared off ,everything seems to have survived but I now need these four bolts, I'm wondering if you know their size?

Cheers

Danny

Hi Dan - have only just seen your post. I'm not sure as I sit here but would think they will be 6 or 5BA but will check one of my Hunters this afternoon for you.

We'll worry about where to get some once we know the size !
