    Benelli 354 sport

    Hi new to the forum so wondered if anyone could help, I have been working on the carbs and found an old previous repair to thread on body where float bowl is bolted has gone completely. It's a Vhbz 20D, so an old type, a friend suggested penlok but that would more or less glue it solid, seem hard to trace any apart from Dellorto, but bit expensive for a set of 4.
    Thanks for any pointers in advance.

    You’ll be lucky to find a replacement carb, but it is possible to get the threads repaired. I damaged a couple of mine without trying very hard. Apparently the alloy deteriorates with age. My local Benelli guru fixed them with “Time Sert” implants. Like a helicoil but much better.

    Thank you for the reply, looked at repair area and it is slightly out of line, this would make the time set weaker I think.
    The good news is that a mate searched the Internet for me, and I have now bought a set of four in very good condition, at a sense price....
