Default MG410 Carburetor

Hi Experts,
I have searched and had gone through a number of threads discussing on the same topic. Still I havent got what am looking for..

I have this MG410 (jap model, pretty old one), I have given her a new set of tires, changed battery and have redone the engine, seats are done and have a usb audio system that i was able to get for Rs.600/- , local brand, doing good.

Have a long way to go to make her look much prettier than she is now.

The main issue that I have now is around the carburetor. Maruti people told me that the current one that is there with the vehicle is not good and the butterfly stays up (previous owner had this with gas).

For almost 6 months now, am searching for a carburetor, and came across the following options
  1. Omni Carb (which Maruti people said, would endup me having a vehicle that cannot climb hill)
  2. Premier 118 NE, Contessa Classic Carb that would provide same pull power with a need for slight modification to fit.(This was told by a self made mechanic in tamilnadu)
  3. Original Jap carburetor that is available thru an army contact i have (INR. 19,800)

Would like to know, whether i can do a good life with option 2, that is, having Premier 118 NE / Contessa Classic carburetor.
Please do direct me to a thread that had already discussed this or the answer that would help me to have this vehicle going good.

Thanks

The contessa is a bottom draft (had it on my 413 so I know). to fit this on your gypsy, you will have to make lots of changes - just not worth it.

Your 410 has a side draft carb. The maruti omni carb is also a side draft.
I would suggest that you try the omni carb first - try a second hand carb first and see how it drives.

If you need any clarifications, do PM me.

Hope this helps

hi

IMO you can use the maruti 1000's (early esteem) carb.

EDIT: the M800's carb is direct fit.

This butterfly getting stuck problem can be fixed by a competent mechanic if he has patience. When i bought an old M800 (SS80 Jap) model it had the same problem and was fixed by a mechanic in Blore didn't have to change the carb and it worked like a charm. Key is to find a capable mechanic. Most Maruti people (or any authorised workshop) seldom like to fix things out of routine, for them easiest way out is to blame the carb and suggest a replacement.

My thanks to Sankar, jeepster and Gypsy boy. Think I will try this omni carb first as a start and see the pull power (as that is what every one is complaining about in garages).
As Sankar said, one mechanic in Coimbatore, said he can fix the butterfly, but looks this carb need a replacement.

Thanks a lot for immediate response, Really happy to learn more things by day with this vehicle and the knowledge you all possess
