Hello Roger, I thought that I had one or two spare float chambers, but I’ve had a look and now remember that I used them to build up a couple of complete carburettors. It is of course quite easy to make a 38 degrees Scott type float chamber out of one that has a different ‘angle of dangle’, cutting through the neck of the banjo, and rejoining it at the correct angle. The only tricky bit is keeping the hole open when brazing or silver soldering the two pieces back together, and in the past I have achieved that by inserting a piece of stainless steel tubing into the joint. 38 degree float chambers are getting very scarce, and we have to resort to desperate measures !
