Needle jet holder

Post by pls516v » Tue Apr 20, 2010 3:58 pm



I pulled the needle jet holders out of my carbs last night and I found that the 2 on the left side had needle jet holders that had 3 holes in a line down the sides and the ones on the right side have 4 holes down the sides. What is the proper number of holes 3 or 4?

It sounds as though you have two different pairs of carbs. (the tubes are the emulsion tubes).

Check the numbers on the top of the flange that mounts the carbs to the plenum.
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

( Seriously, you haven't read all 115 pages of my http://www.wingovations.com website ?? :shock: )
