Actually, the O4B is probably Q4B
Stamping looks like this sold item on ebay:

I think the QA carbs have a different stamping...and I thought it started with a Q...but maybe it's a O. The Z50 carbs have a different stamp...655A, maybe. But Im sure a Z50 carb would run fine on a QA. But if originality is a concern, you'd want the correct stamping.

I stand corrected, both of mine are 655A.

Well...I see these...



Neither stamping seems correct tho.



I also have these in my stash. Missing parts and...I'd need to look closer at them.
Q4b stamps tho.

Is it possible they went to the 655a on the later K1?


Thanks for all the help and info on the carbs....so 655a is definitely for a Z50?


I'm not very knowledgeable about QA50s. But I'm pretty sure 655A carbs went on Z50 's from 72 K3s, up to maybe 1978.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if they put them on QAs during that same period. But I've never seen...I mean I've never learned, if that carb was ever used on a QA. I always thought they had their own line of carb stampings.

One of those eBay carbs that I linked above seems to have a 3rd stamp...one that we haven't discussed..? But I couldn't read it in their pic.

I mentioned tire availability, I see these popping up now, not sure if I've seen a K&S tire, has the correct pattern tho, glad mine are in fairly good shape, $125 is crazy for a tire. Someone must be making these so hopefully the prices will ease up, I would save up my money for a set before I put mobility scooter tires on mine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/305445228017?fits=Model:QA50|Make:Honda&itmmeta=01HSDXNQVEEAABADNVDVGAW8KP&hash=item471df44df1:g:UhQAAOSwZiNl70Gu&itmprp=enc:AQAJAAAA4NI0zLLRbpgIDXa79/7k8m7TSloAb1LtMwAwtbp8D/wI4PKCvDCwNEHbhoIWfY8e+qm60fTI22bziBIqZBM0pvSamBLjX60aoiQkXEuDhpGjdFfSeSQlO34DL+whn8DPhDaX2TAy/Mbl1VzLcgQhgLuWYhTHHXWuaBqCyfJUsz5sNZqarqmMqbMOiPr94o11PmhOBAasO6z5C3RTgput8Q8DCIEbupdUDmBzICxawBIF1i+/xrN+1V/6+bSZ1CYzev3v5aiIMItNy7nSvzqguayXO50Z/DO7hToUl5qcXDH1|tkp:BFBM8P3Wvctj

Those tires are darn close, yet just shy of identical. I think the attached is identical to the Bridgestone Trailwing tread. Kinda expensive at this point, so maybe wait a bit. You probably won't find a better option.
