All about early Perry Carburetors

Link to original instructions

These are the first small body Perry's with the spring needle. The came in 3 body sizes.
No identifying markings on the body

These were originally used on the McCoy Series 21, Conquest .15, and HB engines.
HB in Germany actually made all the Perry Carburetors for Perry until he sold the business in the 1980's

All dimensions are in inches and approximate as they were taken from samples.

Perry also made carburetors with gray or silver color plastic. None were ever made from aluminum.

On the large body the pump carb uses a larger thread that is the same as the o-ring sealed needle.
Note on small needle we have seen 2 different tapers Click here

The style below uses an O-ring seal on the needle. You can see the nub is longer so the O-ring has a place to seal.

These carburetors usually have "Perry" molding into into the body.
