Title: PROFI 61 glow
Post by: Fourfingers on November 15, 2021, 07:56:11 AM
I have just acquired a PROFI 61, but not yet delivered.  Seems to be missing its carb.
Anyone know where to find one … or more likely  - find something that fits or could be made to fit!
Thanks

Don't know whether you've gotten any info yet, but the Hoernlein PROFI 61 (and the smaller 40) used Perry type carbs (Irvines will also work) - I don't remember the spigot diameter (I had both some time ago) so that will be the only open question (actually any .60 carb will work if it fits and the venturi diameter is adequate).

Konrad might have more info and I have a box full of never used carbs that might work.

Many thanks for reply.  In fact its a 40!  I got an Irvine carb and it works perfectly.
