Greetings!

New to the site and cx's. I took my carbs apart to find the needle seat on the left side missing. It was only running on one cylinder unless you were full throttle, high rpm. It looks like (judging from the other side) it will press out through the main jet hole. I have been having trouble finding any online. Anyone have a junk carb body with the seat still there? Or know of a place I can find one?



Thanks,

caveman

I don't think they make needle seats. They aren't meant to be replaceable. The real question is how does a pressed in seat disappear.

I don't think he means the float needle, I think he is talking about the vacuum slide needle, the fitting it seats into is easily lost.

I think you have to buy new needles and the seat as a set.



This kit, for a 78-79 CX shows that they have the needles and seat included.







I have never dealt with this company and know nothing about the quality of their stuff or what the service is like,,You could email them to see if they have them for an 81 or if these will fit in an 81 and if they sell the needles and seats separately, that one kit is 45.00, so it would be 90.00 for two.
