DC-7 is a 1966 shovel head carb, not Sportster.

DC-10. Same size throttle body opening as the DC-7; 1.375 inches. Different jetting for sure.

Those that have Linkerts should stock up on replacement parts while you can.
I forget the guys name (good guy to deal with) but he's looking to sell out the biz.
