Linkert DC Pics

E65 uses DC-12. L65 uses DC-6. 10)

Here's the early 1957 DC-1 Linkert without idle airbleed.
It can be spotted by the short brass tube on the side of the body while later versions have a taller tube.
It also has a fitting to connect to the idle air passage hole visible in the picture above the short tube.
Other identifiers for 57 are no patent dates on the float bowl with a 90° elbow fuel inlet and no idle air bleed. 11)
