    Default Piece fell out of carb Help Identify? Stock Harley 1979 Keihin butterfly carb

    Hey Guys, This tiny piece is not in the service manual. It fell out of my carb while I was cleaning it.
    the carb is the stock from 1978.5- 1979 AMF Shovelhead Keihin butterfly carb


    Can anyone identify?

    I really appreciate any help here. I simply can't find anything it would fit in.

    Here are two photos of it and a couple photos of the carb/ Service manual page

    If itís a cv carb, I seem to remember a piece like that that goes in the top of the carb.

    I worked with a old man who kept a box of odd parts to add to the other mechanics tables. Nothing like seeing a Cummings wedding band laying on the table after it's all built and back in the truck. And the old bastard would watch you spend a day pulling the pan and rechecking all the bearings. It came to blows several times but retirement seemed to be the only thing that put a stop to it.
