so i just blabbed , but key ask is for leads on carb rebuild kit!! Thx!! Rex
The carb service kits come up for sale occasionally on eBay/Craig list etc and sell for allot of money. I think Jess in the US has some and I do in the UK. I would sagest you check and buy what you need. The parts mostly needed are the Float needle & seat the float chamber gasket and diaphragms for the choke and accelerator pump. The choke diaphragm doesn’t come in the kit and is difficult to find . Washers and Viton O rings are also available. Most jets are cleanable for re use. The “None return “ accelerator pump valve are known to seize and are difficult to find replacement. There is a “Thread “ In this forum showing the service kit . Its may or may not not contain all you may need Msg me if I can be of help in the UK. Regards Rog
