Anyway, here's 2 pages from my 1974 FSM that might shed some light on your question. It seems to me #23 is a thin washer.











I didn't need to replace the seals when I last rebuilt my Bendix / Zenith, thus a few left over parts from the kit. I'm thinking #23 is the upper left item in this pic.





Thanks Doc, I do have a similar washer in the kit, but it isn’t going to hold the seal in - it’s a loose fit.

Default Bendix 62 XLCH

i have 5-6 of these and rebuilt hundreds..i didn't bother to skim the pages of answers so if this is redundant. the adjustabe jet is ALWAYS better than fixed and if i remember correctly harley had a recall on the carb to replace a fixed jet with a redesigned fixed jet because fixed jets were starving the shovelheads for fuel at big road speeds, not good for any motor.. i have the parts if anyone need details on this but personally i would never bother with a bendix again or a mikuni/branch setup because of the kehin CV carbs.SOOOO much better and zero mods to anything to install, again contact me for details i became the owner of a 62 xlch yesterday and i had a CV set up waiting, second kick fire and run with the magneto after sitting over 5 years... i will be posting a new thread on this bike lookin for owners and parts in the new future...If anyone is in the market for a shovel bagger contact me as well
