Last first you can use 20/50 oil but 20 fork oil was recommended. I am assiting a fellow BSAOC member with his carb as you correctly say C12 has the Amal 375/4 Which Amal no longer manufacture. I have contacted Surrey Cycles a main Amal agent They suggest a Concentric Thy can supply & jet and slide it correctly for the C12 they quoted me just on £90 which is cheaper than the first available monobloc. You can have your 375 resleeved for approx £30  the fit new jts & slide. Hope this helps. Woodie

Hi Spike,
You might be lucky like Canman3 (Graham) who picked one up at the Netley Marsh or Kempton AJ for a tenner, then you can see ole misery guts "Surrey Cycles" The Amal carb spares man for a gasket set + other bits and throttle stop screw cos thats bound to busted!!
You will find the carb will have 375/4 stamped on top of the flange that bolts to your bike cylinder head. (you prob know that but just in case)
PS he aint a bad ole lad really!!!
Cheers!
Richard

Richard,Im glad that Im not the only one that finds Surry Cycles the most miserable and unhelpful company to deal with.Unfortunately they do carry a fair old selection of parts.Maybe he needs a long holiday????
