Flywheel access cover

A correct Claudel Hobson AZP carburettor

Back from the Beaulieu International Autojumble, and I bought this at the Bonhams auction.



I already have the top part of a second carburettor, "just" looking for the bottom half now.

If you have one of these or another type of brass Claudel Hobson carburettor and want to sell it, please get in touch using the contact page on www.vintagesunbeams.blogspot.com - condition is unimportant!
