Harley 1134-37 WL WLD U UL VL Linkert M-51 Carburetor 1937-52
- Product Code: 353517321240
- Availability: In Stock
You are purchasing a European reproduction M-51 carburetor in natural brass or bronze. This was used on the WL and UL models from 1937 through 1952. This has the adjustable main jet needle as original, externally vented Venturi, throttle lever, nitrophyl float and a float lever that works correctly. Gas inlet needle and seat are all metal, not a rubber tip that fails. Includes throttle lever for aluminum heads as shown.
The M-51 is "correct" for 1937-1948 74" U models and 45" WL and WLD models. It can be used on all 45" and 74" side valve models from 1930-1973 including VL, UL, G, W, WLA , WLC, R when the needles are tuned for correct jetting using a manifold set up for 1 1/4" Schebler or Linkert carburetors. Can likely be used on J models though we have no experience with this. Can be used on ULH 80" models but you will experience a loss of performance due to less air flow with the 1 1/16" Venturi. 80" models used a 1 1/8" Venturi.
This is a Samwel product and it is properly engineered, cast, machined, and equipped with premium reproduction parts throughout. I've restored hundreds of Linkert carbs over the years and I'm very impressed with these. Do note, we are not drop shipping these from a certain large warehouse parts company like a lot of "ghost" sellers on eBay do that own no inventory. I personally inspect every carburetor that comes through our hands. Take your chances with someone who doesn't even know what a Linkert carb is and can't support you after the sale or deal with someone who knows Linkerts inside and out.
The body is identical to originals, you can't say that about the other reproductions from Asia on the market, the embossing on the carb body is not the same on those, ours are the same. We do have M-88, M-5, and M-51 carburetors available as well.
You can also buy the air cleaner mounting plates, carburetor connection to oil bath air cleaner, 1109-41M carb (inlet pipe extension) spacer, and we get the round short style air cleaners from time to time, as well as a ton of other military OEM, NOS, and excellent reproduction parts.
