Hey everyone, trying to figure out a pair of carbs for my now rebuilt engine. There seem to be two types being sold on ebay as cb160 carbs which didn't help to clear it up.

I've got two different types here, anyone know which type belongs on a stock cb160 motor? I would not be surprised if type 1 are from a cb175, since it seems like whoever ordered stuff for this bike didn't know the difference b/w the cb160 and cb175


1st type: note the 3 holes/dead end passages vs. 5 below. Also the jet at the top of the carb and there appears to be an extra brass tube
These also have 20 on the choke plate, while the second type has nothing on the choke plates

90 and 35 in the power jet carbs

90 and 38 in the cb160 carbs

There's also one new looking carb without a power jet but the same 3 passage style with 92 and 38 jets, no wonder the PO never got this thing to work...

Time for some mixing and matching to make one functional pair
