    How about introducing yourself Hans. It will go a long way towards getting some response!
    And what model are you talking about?

    Re: Choke lever used with 6" airfilter?

    Okay, sorry. I'm from Europe, Denmark. Well I'm restoring my old flathead from 1938 ( 38UL ), and I'm just wondering if there are a special length og the choke lever installed on the linkert carburator when installed together with the 6" airfilter ( 1936..38 ). Can someone here help me with the oem spare part number, and comfirm that there is a special length for the 6" airfilter.
    Thanks

    hans looking at my 37 ul using a snout style airhorn it looks to me that the choke lever has plenty of room to clear a round aircleaner coming off the forward side of a m51 linkert it measures 3.5 inches. a 6 inch aircleaner measuring from the center of the carb should be roughly 3 inches. from the center of the carb to the end of the lever is about 4 inches. i would like to find a 6 inch cleaner for my bike if you run across another one keep me in mind.

    Hans,
    Hello to Denmark!
    The number is 1233-33A. It is a round rod that angles out from the body of the carb, not like the later one which is L shaped for the 7 inch cover.

    i must have the later one. what does the early one look like? i have the early 4 line of script m 51 so i figured it was the correct chokelever as well.

    I thought that the #1233-33A was the one used for the 7 inch, Can someone send a picture of the one used with the 6 inch airfilter. Thanks

    None of those levers pictured on that site are the right one. It is made of round stock like the later 7 inch one but is shaped totally differently. Instead of an L shape it comes out at a diagonal. Sort of like an Indian one but not one piece. Thought I might have one to photograph but haven't found one yet. the part number I listed is the same in the 1940, 1941, and 1945 parts books for the SV with the 6 inch air cleaner. When H-D went to a 7 inch air cleaner they kept the same number!

    Thanks Robbie

    Well, that's exactly my words, there's only a picture of the 7 inch choke lever on that Linkert site.
    Anyway - I have tryed to send him a mail ( parts@linkertcarbs.com ) asking about the choke lever used
    for the 6 inch airfilter, unfortunately no reply.
    I have also studyed many parts catalogs ( 1938 and 1941 spareparts ), without finding any picture of
    the choke lever used on the 6 inch airfilter, I can only find one called #1233-33A, but no picture,
    so if someone here have a picture I'm very interested!!!.

    Thanks
