I have a perfectly good carburetor that is missing a part. It is Carter's part #61-199. It is called the Vacuum Piston Spring. It fits inside the metering rod piston. This part is the same in the 531, 643S, 644, etc carburetor which is used in Packards from about 1941 to 1950 If anyone has a carb that perhaps is missing other parts or not functional, I wonder if you could part with this item. Willing to pay your price. If you do not have, do you have any suggestions of where I might locate this spring? They are rather important and one cannot just replace it with just any spring.

I have a Carter repair parts kit #1321D. It services the Packard 42-50 with WDO
531S-531SA..The package contents list the spring.

The complete kit is $20 plus shipping..It will fit in a USPS small priority mail box.

Let me know---sent you a pm

I have several 40s era WDO parts carburetors. I'll look today to see if I have a decent spring for you.

Got it okay. Got the carb installed on the '42 but haven't started it yet. Have other problems. I am thinking my cam timing is off by one tooth retarded. Only one way to find out and I am going to remove the timing cover. Yes a big job!!
