1983 Tomos bullet A3 direct carb replacement?

Postby Mudspot » Thu Apr 07, 2016 11:13 am

Hello! Can anyone please advise what might be the possible carburetor replacement for my 1983 Tomos A3 Bullet auto 2 speed?
It presently has the Encarwi 12 mm. I'd appreciate any suggestions or help. Thanks! :mrgreen:

You can run a Dellorto SHA 14/12 but you have to have the right Dellorto intake to accommodate it. That Dellorto intake is a direct replacement for the Encarwi intake, but it is pretty hard to come by. I believe they used that intake in later model A3's and A3N's.

Thanks much for the quick reply! Well that was the same carb that Go2it suggested, although they were not sure about whether my existing intake manifold would work, but I believe you answered that question. Any idea where I might possibly look for this particular intake manifold? Thanks again!

The only place I've ever seen that intake for sale has been on ebay. I believe this is the one you need, but the price is crazy high. I would put a post up in the Buy/Sell forum on Mopedarmy.com that you're looking for the A3 Dellorto intake. It's a long shot, but I've seen a lot of hard to find parts surface in that forum.
