There is a rubber sleeve which connects the carburetor on the R42 and R47 to the tube which connects to the head. This is part # 635 in the spare parts list.
Unsurprisingly this rubber tube is not available from any suppliers .
Being in the rubber moulding business I could easily make a mould and mould some if I knew what the rubber sleeve looks like.
I could guess what it looks like but it would be just as easy to make it correct , which would be better.
If anyone has even a perished sample and could send me a photo with some basic dimensions your reward would be a brand new set of rubbers made from the correct grade of rubber.

Huggett was able to source a set for me in 2013. Perhaps he still has a source, or inventory.

R47 sleeve

Thanks guys for your help.
Thanks Cris . It is easier for me to make them than get from Mark.
If anyone else needs these just shout and I will mould you some.
I don't know what stops these from coming loose on the carb side . Seems to be a steel strap but this can't be very secure.

r42 rubbur sleeve

I would be interested in a set. I think they are held in place and slightly compressed by the carb and intake tube being rigidly bolted in place, without any clamps.

yes, they are mounted the way

yes, they are mounted the way you discribe. I have only one set. Should Bill (he was the first to start this subject) have no interest I'm glad to forward the two to you. Hans

R47 Rubber

Thanks Hans . I live in South Africa and the postal system is a bit dysfunctional so if you did send it by post it has a 50% chance it will not make it . Rather send to Olebmw.
If you could measure the inside and outside diameter and length that would be fine for me.
The spare parts lists this rubber as part 635 . Just below this is a metal strap 636 which the description lists as a strap for use with 635.
Puzzling for me is that they list 2 rubbers and 2 straps required ie one strap per rubber. A well maybe all will become apparent when I come to assemble.
