The Dellorto SHB is THE small frame carburetor. It is fitted as standard on almost all of the ‘little ones’. It is available with a 16-20mm outlet. The SHB is designed very logically and just like the SI, it does not have a pin. It is relatively easy to tune with the help of the main and idle jets. All of our SHB carburetors are originals and direct from Dellorto.
The SHB models for the Vespa 50-125/PV/ET3 are almost identical. They are perfect for straightforward Plug&Play tuning. An SHBC 19.19 gives a small frame with a 75cc cylinder a genuine boost and also supplies 130cc engines with a sufficient charge of fuel.
On the SHB for the PK, the steel mesh of the air filter was replaced with a washable, round filter element. With the exception of the SHBC 19.19E for the PK80, it also has an O-ring in the intake duct for optimum sealing. On the SHB, the throttle cable meets the PK from the other side on the carburetor cover than with the V50/PV/ET3.
Conclusion: The classic small frame carburetor for original engines and decent 130cc tuning setups.
TIP: When changing the size of the carburetor, also order matching intake manifolds (e.g. part no 158000 for SHB 19.19 V50/PV). Ensure you always have enough 5mm main jets at home.
