Dell'Orto MA19B4 Overhaul

The Dell'Orto MA19B4 for the Lambretta 150D needed an overhaul and Adam from Italian Motor Magazine recommended Eurocarb for parts. If you cant see your particular Dell'Orto on their website, use the Dell'Orto part number in the search box.


Eurocarb sell British made Trumpet / Velocity Stacks. The Dell'Orto MA19B4 has a locating dowel for the stock 'tipo F14' filter housing, this will not interfere with the Trumpet. The machining is very good and the thread form (M32 x 1.25) is firm without binding.
