If you can what are your YS numbers stamped on the carb. I can ID for you. Also the base is a different center to center.

Questions: Hi, I was just about to order a rebuild kit for my M38a1 when I noticed your details say the Carter YS 950S carb is a side draft???? the tech manual says down draft? My carb has Carter YS stamped into the carb body. Perhaps you can confirm before I make a mistake and order the wrong kit. Thanks, Rick

That is referring to the top section of the carburetor that makes the 90 degree bend.

Questions: Hi, which is the correct Carter for the M38? I thought the YS-950 was the one.

The Army Tech Manual TM 9-1826A, "Ordnance Maintenance Carter Carburetors" covers the YS637S which is essentially the same carb as the YS950S just with a smaller bore and jetting. Used in conjunction with the Carter YS950S Specifications sheet Carter Carburetor Form 4960B dated March 53 and revised March 56 will work out just fine.This data can be found on my web site www.willysmjeeps.com .One word of caution, the TM 9-1826A exerpts I have posted to my web site have an original Army error in the illustration on page 114 showing the metering rod spring on the wrong side of the diaphragm corrected. If you source this manual elsewhere be sure to note the discrepancy.

Questions: i am looking for a rebuild kit compatible with today's crappy gasoline. older diaphragms were made for the older gasoline before they started putting ethanol in it. is this kit compatible?

Questions: I have a willy's 1956 with a carter ys 518 carberator. Will this gasket kit work with the 518 model?

As long as it is a M38A1 with the original YS carburetor you will be all set.

Questions: 1953 Willys M38A1 has a YF 938 carb on it. Is there an overhaul kit available for it, or am I better off to buy the Solex on here and replace it? It already has the 90 degree air horn.
Question By: Dale on May 24 2011 12:00 AM
The proper kit for the YF is 924160-MK
