RE: IML: Fw: Carter AFB running Question



One thing that's true of every carb I've rebuilt is that the castings are
prone to warping.  During the rebuild when you have it apart you need to lay
it on something perfectly flat.  If theres air under any part you need to
true it up before reassembly.  No amount of sealant or gasket can fill these
voids perfectly and air will get in throwing everything off.  

Just some general info that I hope is helpful!  

Good luck on that... carbs are tricky business.

Sorry - missed that part about it being rebuilt..

The accelerator pumps on the AFB's seem to be
problematic on the ones that I've had - the leather
plunger dries out and the thing doesn't work properly.


If you did the carb rebuild yourself, it's possible
that you missed something?  I tried DIY and got
totally different (good) results when I paid $250 to
have it done by a pro.  I have resigned myself to
leaving them alone internally besides a casual hosing
out with carb cleaner.
