Dellorto SHA 14/xx, 15/xx

 

Dellorto SHA is a family of Italian moped or mini-bike carburetors. SHA’s have flat throttle slides and no jet needles. They all have the same outer size and main body appearance, with a 59mm round flange for an air filter. They have been produced for in Italy from the 1960’s to the 2000’s. In particular the Dellorto SHA 14/12 and 14/9 carburetors were on tens of thousands of US mopeds from 1976 to 1985.

Carburetor Size: The venturi is where the air mixes with gasoline. It is also where the air passage gets narrower, to cause a higher air speed in order to atomize or break up the liquid fuel into smaller droplets. With Dellorto SHA carburetors, two numbers are used to describe the size of the venturi. The first number is the venturi exit, and the second number is the venturi entrance. So looking at an SHA 14/12 from the front you see a 12mm hole, and from the back (engine side) you see a 14mm hole.

Choke Type: The choke is a lever you push or pull, “on” for cold starting, or “off” for normal running. There are three types used on Dellorto SHA carburetors:

A  direct lever  push down lever on carb to put choke “on”, give full throttle to release it “off”
B  linkage lever  same operation as direct lever
C  cable choke  cable goes to a handlebar thumb lever, pull to put choke “on”, let go for “off”  

 

Cable choke is needed when the carburetor choke lever cannot be reached by hand.

Arbeo-Dellorto SHA carbs were made in Spain under license for the Spanish moped Derbi. They were more goldish colored, and tended to leak fuel past the float seat.

Generic SHA: Since the 2000’s there are China made remakes. Most have different screw threads, not Italian-metric. Many have M5-0.80 jet threads, different from Dellorto M5-0.75. The Runtong remake carb has M5-0.75 jet threads. So it can take any Dellorto M5 jet, but many other generics cannot.

Clamp size: These new replacement carburetors only clamp tight when the intake pipe is exactly the right size. Many intakes are made slightly smaller or become smaller from wear. When the clamp screw is tightened fully, the carburetor can still move, and eventually slip off. For a 18 sleeve, a 18.00 to 18.10 pipe would clamp tight, but 17.95 or less pipe would not clamp tight. That is not very much forgiveness.

Cut up a can: A strip cut out from an aluminum can, with scissors, can be placed under the sleeve. Thickness is 0.1mm. Either a 1/3 circle or a full circle can be used, as needed. A full circle adds 0.2 to the clamp diameter, for a 17.80 to become 18.00. A 1/3 circle adds 0.1 mm, for a 17.90 to become 18.00. A thin aluminum baking pan is thinner than a can. A thinner full circle is better for when only a little is needed.

Most brand new original Garelli, Minarelli, and Tomos intake manifolds (pipes) are 18.00. But some are 17.95, and actually need a 1/3 strip of aluminum can inserted in order to clamp tight and proper, with new original carburetors.

Cable pipes are for redirecting the throttle cable. Pipe thread is M6-0.75. Adjuster thread is M5-0.75. A throttle cable end can pass through, except 2d. Bikes with front carburetors don’t need them, because the cable goes straight up. Others have gas tanks or floor boards that the cable must go under or around.

Although some are shown with adjusters, cable pipes do not include #3a pipe adjuster and #3 pipe lock nut.
