Reece Fish Carburettor
|Manufacturer||Leonard Reece & Co|
|Engine||A-series, 850–1275 cc I4|
The Reece Fish carburettor (also known as the Reece-Fish carburettor) was a carburettor used by Mini Se7en racers in the 60s and 70s. It is not currently in production.
The Reece Fish is a variable choke, side- or down-draft design, with few moving parts to wear or adjust. To change from side-draft to down-draft, the installer simply rotates the float chamber to suit the carburettor orientation.
The engine tuner David Vizard rated this carburettor highly in his book Tuning the A Series Engine and also in recent on-line comments pertaining to the high fuelling atomisation characteristics of this carburettor suiting the Siamese port layout of British Motor Corporation A-series engines. Similarly, the author Clive Trickey rated these carburettors well in his book More Mini Tuning
