Thread: Linkert model question

  1. #1

    Default Linkert model question

    The carb that came on my ‘31 Excelsior Super X is not correct...it is a Linkert stamped M9. It has a bean pot style bowl. That model number doesn’t come up when I did a quick search of the ‘net and my carb books. Can anyone assist with identification? See attached stamping...it may not be original! I will get some better pictures once the carb is removed. I am looking for the correct DLX68 if you have any leads....

    Thanks in advance-

    I think that the M9 is in the same category as the M6, M7 and M8. These carburetors and maybe others were replacements made by Linkert for Schebler equipped motorcycles after Schebler went out of business. So accordingly they have no correct application.

    The M9 is not mentioned here, however this was the first year of Linkert availability, so an M9 could have been introduced to fit other models and brands.

    Can you get a decent pic of the stamp, Chris?

    The "Beck" replacement carbs had INDIAN stamped above or below the model stamp.

    "Beanpots" were 1940 Schebler production only.

    PS: I have pics of M6, M6C, and M7H without the INDIAN stamp. One L&L catalog lists "standard" 1" and 1¼" complete carburetors as generic replacements (plus the MR).
    It is anybody's guess what was stamped upon them.

    Those pot metal Scheblers are fragile and expensive compared to the later Linkerts. If you're not putting the bike in for judging, I'd stay with what you've got. I have the same problem with my '29 KJ which was originally fitted with the Schebler DLX 76 but runs just fine on a Linkert M18 with an adapter plate.

    Was lucky at Oley to find a Schebler DLX70 for my 1930 KJ. Could never seem to get it dialed in so went back to the Linkert M9 and it runs perfectly. I would also like to find out what the M9 was used on.

    Sorry, I can't help with the original question, but what throttle disc and venturi diameter is the M9?

    I doubt it was "used on" any particular model, but was merely a generic replacement that could be fitted on anything. It may have been suggested for something but never was original to it. Even the carbs listed in the above H-D catalog were never fitted on the bikes they were used to replace the Schebler on. Even the part numbers which allude to introduction dates were made up just to show retro-fit capability, not original fitment.

    The DLX68 is bronze, Steve!

    Got one on the bench.

    So was the DLX70, and quite manageable.
    (The DLX76 was produced both in bronze and potmetal!)

    PS: Anybody got a decent carb listing for Hens?
    Its hard to believe the DLX70 was produced after the DLX76.
    Thanks in advance...
