Ughhhh. %*#* carb again.

Carb issues again. Rebuilt one of the spares laying around but had an issue with the accelerator pump on the bottom leaking. Finally found another that isn't leaking. Looked up a new part (6g8-14368-02-00) and seems they run about $40.
Has anyone found a cheaper source?

Also, once you've built up a carb and tested it; how do you store it so it will be ready? Vacuum sealed in a bag after draining?

No, that seems about right.

Yup, but only a regular zip-lock. Always worked out (I had 2 spares are the time).


Try Biobor EB. Really eliminates alumnium corrosion, which seems to be the source of may of the jet-blocking particles.
