    I was having problems with my 2000 883 hugger popping back through the carb so I went to check what jets was in it and replace if needed. When I removed the bowl I found one of the float mounts broken. It must of been cracked for awhile due to the color difference in the metal, but anyway.

    The carb is part # 27490-96a. They are about $450 new. I can find a bunch of cv carbs on ebay and such but the part numbers don't match. Would I be able to use a carb with a different number? And what is the difference between them.

    Some of the ones I have found are:
    27492-96
    27501-89
    27412-99c
    27421-99c

    Thanks for the help

    Bill

    The 27492-96 is stock on evo baggers.

    27501-89 fits xlh HDI & DOM should be 89- vintage

    27412-99C This is the factory original CV carb from 2002 Electra Glide Standard.

    Or this one

    Harley Davidson Kehin Carburator 05 Dyna Super Glide

    Check with the dealer as far as fitment.

    There are actually a lot of CV carbs that can be used on your bike aside from the part number you posted with small differences between them such as linkage differences for cruise and some other small features not to mention jetting.
