Rotten carburettor jet post

Post by ChrisBob »



Hi all
My first post... is about carburetors!
I am rebuilding and glad I am but one is in a really bad state.

The jet posts are corroded, image shows the light shining through a pin hole.

I would like to know if a fix is possible. I was going to try using aluminium weld.

Any other ideas or suggestions?

I would clean thoroughly and use JB Weld. When completely cured it is totally resistant to gasoline. https://www.jbweld.com/faqs
