British designed and built Type 6 (early)  Amal Carburetors where used on some Chiefs '52-53 (Police excluded),
Vertical Scouts and Warriors from 1949 to 51 (I think!). Note the 3 bolt linkert manifold to 2 bolt amal adaptor.

From the late 40ís through the early 70ís and beyond most all British, American, and European carburetors have been of similar types. Whether itís an early Amal Type 6, or a Linkert, or a late Amal concentric, they all function basically the same. The major difference between American carburetors and those on British and European bikes, is that for the most part American carburetors have used a butterfly valve rather than a slide/needle to meter the air/fuel above idle.
