I should know this!

Postby Maz » Sat Feb 13, 2016 10:40 am



I'm in the process of stripping/cleaning my carbs ready to fit Randakks overhaul kits, but, In the process, I noticed that my idle mixture screws don't appear to be as they should, with regard to 'O' ring position.
I know this is on the forum somewhere but searching has failed to find the diagram - Could someone please tell me the correct arrangement of spring, O ring etc?
I'm guessing spring goes on the screw first, then washer, then O ring. However, my screws don't have any washers (I did check to make sure they weren't still in the screw hole in the carb bodies) and the O ring is in a groove just below the screw head.

I also found that one carb has its primary air jets reversed too!

No washers on the pilot screws, just the spring and your o-ring is in the correct position.
