Hi All
I'm hoping someone has some info that will guide me on what to do with a carburetor that I have.
It is an Amal Fischer 78/427 carburetor.
This carb was included in a lot of British Amals that I got at an auction. Although I like to think I know enough about Amal carbs, I know virtually nothing about the Amal Fischer except that I believe it was used on a pre war German motorcycle (maybe a BMW).
Anyone have any info on this?
Thank you!!

Welcome! I just looked

Welcome! I just looked through the book "BMW Profiles: Motorcycles from Munich 1923-1969" and the 78/427 carb was not listed at all. Several other versions of Amal carbs were listed but not this one.

Thank you for the info

Thank you for the info Kurt.
It looks the same as the ones used on the Rennsport to me but different numbers.
It's weird, I can't find anything on a carb with this number. Anyone know if it's for Zundapp or anything else.
Thanks again!

Appears to be a UK company that have and/or make several old brand carb parts. I stumbled upon it looking for info on AMAL M76/451 L carbs listed as original equipment for the Zundapp KS600.
