Product Description

Our carbureted AMR vintage kits are designed to work on 40/50hp upright style Type 1 engines using a 34 Pict carburettor.

Featuring dual dedicated drive belts to help give that vintage look and eliminate slip and overcome the excessive load on generator and alternator bearings found with single belt serpentine setups.

The kit includes a custom throttle linkage setup that hooks up to the standard throttle cable.

This kit ships with the following items:

  • Billet 6160 blower pulley
  • Billet 6160 crank pulley
  • Modified overbored 34Pict 3 carburettor with custom velocity stack
  • Carburettor to blower manifold

  • Supercharger stand with integrated tensioner assembly
  • High pressure silicone hoses
  • Heavy duty high pressure hose clamps
  • High quality vee drive belts
  • Angled distributor cap
  • Custom throttle actuator

Please note that this kit does not include the blower. Blowers are available to purchase separately.

Tuning and setup

Where supplied with kits, carburettors are fitted with a baseline tune, this is sufficient to get your engine running but will not be the correct tune for YOUR engine. You WILL need to undertake further tuning to dial the kit in for your engine.
The documentation includes full step-by-step instructions on how you can undertake the tuning yourself using a readily available wide-band AFR gauge.
We also provide full support via our online help-desk and knowledge-base.
