Now THAT brings back memories. My carbs, finally done about 10 years ago now...
I saw your image and thought you'd nicked some of my images!! Amazing!
That is a good point to write on your instruction paper. It is important when shipping in November/December to a cold country. Or you can test the carbs with fuel for four stroke lawn mover, Alkylate gasoline, not a normal fuel.Goss wrote:Glad you are sorted Martin, that fuel is only good for three months shelf life. I recommend fuelling the carbs hanging over your bench prior to fitting as it saves a lot of inconvenience, lucky it was #6 that was stuck for easy access.
Have a good summer on your bikes.
Agreed Dave, there was little opportunity for them to travel upside down prior to now.daves79x wrote:Just a note - carbs that have been shipped/jostled around always stand a chance of having a float needle stick. Not unusual at all.
