New Carburetor

Rochester B carb

Time to get back to some Rover-izing.

I’ve wanted to replace the old Weber carb on the Rover for some time. The obvious choice, was the Rochester B, which was a popular GM carburetor back in the 1950’s & early 60’s. The Rochester B, appeared on many 216 & 235 Chevy motors.

The mounting holes on the Rochester B flange needs to be elongated for it to fit on the Rover 2.25L, which I have done. The linkage also needs to be adapted for the Series Rover, which I am in the middle of doing.

Luckily, there are quite a few Rochester B carbs out there, and rebuild parts are very easy to come by. The “B” carb has the manual choke and the “BC” version has an automatic choke.
