I have a quick question im rebuilding my set of carbs vb48c and I mixed up my vacuum pistons.
the service manual says not to mix them up... Well I did by mistake.. is it going to hurt anything?

You are not the first nor will be the last. It is what it is. You can select fit pistons in bores for even fitting, not too tight or loose. No harm done.
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM
