I didn't read the links, but I'd start by trying flatten out the fork on the left.

If all else fails, I can perhaps send you a substitute float cover. I'll have to dig around to see what I can find, but I have some partial H4 carbs in the basement.

Ouch! And that was for carbs that didn't match.

Back in 2012 I bought these for 35, knocked down from 40. Passed on for use on a rally MKII Ford Zephyr at no profit. Had been on a car for a few miles after recon. Maybe MGA?

George,

I searched through my boxes sand don't have a spare lid. The carburetor set that I have did not have the float chambers at all. I dug though the boxes and did not find anything else that would match what you have.

I'll see if I can pull the AUC #s off of the float lids on my carburetors for you.

Thanks for all your help but that will not be necessary. I can source lids elsewhere, locally.
