Question New Way carb. help!

I have a New Way model D with a Holley Bros. carb. It uses a cork float that has deteriorated pretty badly. Does any one have a source of fine grained cork 7/8" thick? I need a 4" square piece! H&M only has 5/8", Does any one have a glue that is gas resistant, to laminate the 2 pieces? OR does any one have a float for my carb? It is 2 7/8" OD, 1 5/8" ID by 7/8" thick, and is circular - it looks like a donut! Thanks in advance,
Andrew

Andrew, It sounds very much like the float in the carb on my 34' HD. Check some sources for early HD parts. The carb is a Linkert or a Schebler. I will take the bowl off mine tomorrow and measure it for sure. I will get back to you.

Andrew, I took my carb apart, and the float measures: OD 2 1/2", ID 1 5/8" by 5/8" thick. It is donut shaped, and made of brass. The hinge is screwed on, so you can make one or use the old one. These are still available, and cost about $30.00. Check www.harborvintage.com. I am sure they can set you up. Tell them you need a float for a Harley Davidon model VL. The carb is a linkert, or a Schebler. Good luck!
Eric
