CD 150 service kit

Evening all,

I'm looking for a service kit for my Vitesse. I see James Paddock do one at a competitive price, but I'm wondering about the quality of the diaphram included ? I've seen cheap ones at autojumbles that are almost rigid, rather than nice and flexible. Anyone bought one from them recently ?

im sure there were some thick ones also sold by burlen   

worth a e bay search for NOS   i know Doug got a nice flimsy batch from a market sale 

JP have a good reputation for most parts 

its a suck it and see problem we are all facing ,

most of the supply chain is made up of passing the  stuff around all the suppliers  all with differing mark ups

I just cant believe theres still more than one company making them - could be NOS still stored somewhere I suppose. If they are new then maybe its a question of quality control and the same manufacturer sometimes produces duff batches which some retailers accept and others not....

Not sure (from memory?) if you need all the parts in a general service kit, as in, regarding the actual wear you have on a component,

Sure, tired rubbers, etc, you need.

Eg, I think (from?) memory the kits often have the butterfly discs, that I understand aren't often worn?.

I sorted mine out, to a reliable level, fairly cheaply with just a few bits.

PS. Maybe shouldn't be offering these opinions, even if there ok, as our suppliers may struggle?.

Well, opened up the rear carb today - diaphram is still good, but O rings are naff - problem is leaking from the carb throat and jet holder. Float height looks ok(and not leaking), so I'm wondering about the needle valve seating. Anyway - I think I know what I'll need and where to go. Thanks all.

yes anything rubber may have deteriorated. The needle valves could also have worn so they dont close properly although sometimes cleaning can sort them out. How are the spindles? There should be minimal play if you rock each spindle where it enters the body on both sides...

A check to see if it's also wear in the spindle bore, on the carb bodies (not as common as spindle wear, though my original ones had this), is to move the Spindle along to an unworn part and if min play, then bodies should be ok I understand?.

Bodies can be fitted with bushings to account for this I think?, though specialist stuff and not cheap, I imagine?.
