Carter BB DTE2 accelerator pump

Recommended Posts

I'd like to hear from someone familiar with the DTE2 accelerator pump. In the parts offered by suppliers, I have seen a brass cup-type retainer for the top of the spring. I have also seen a smaller diameter flat fiber retainer for sale.

My carburetor came to me with the brass cup-type retainer. After rebuilding it I cannot see how the pump would have ever worked with the brass cup retainer that was in the carb when I got it. The engine didn't accelerate well at all, so I am thinking maybe the accelerator pump wasn't working. Has anyone seen these two different types of spring retainers ?   Maybe my carb had the wrong one.
