It should be, as 46mm SU floats dont really come off, and are plastic stock.

Unless you know how the solder the hole up, you are just going to have to buy one, the sooner you buy it, the sooner you will get it, and I would buy a set, that way when the other one fails, you will have the replacement.
Does anyone you know have a set of SUs they are not using on a shelf somewhere?
Do you have any carb shops around where you live?

I only bought one. I don't have the money for two.
I don't know anyone with any su's and no, no carb shops besides one and me and the owner got on bad terms because of a worker there.

Thanks anyways.

Original California Black plates. Pretty rare. I remember 71Dimers 68 Blue Wagon had Black plates...

I want a set of Blue or yellow for my car...
