Thank you MaconMan77.The gasket should extend to the carb opening, covering the o ring.
No, no no. She used a cereal box to make the template that fits and aligns accurately with shape and all the holes. Now she will use the template to cut a gasket out from a gasket material sheet.
Thank you flitecontrol.That's the heaviest "patina" I've seen on a set of jets, but nowhere near the worst accumulation of crud in the bowl. A little metal polish should have the jets looking like new. I'm sure the brass float valve seat will also need polishing.
I am not sure I understand what you are referring to. I did check one in the float bowl that sends fuel to a hole in the acceleration pump pump and the the one in the float bowl gasket that gets the fuel from another hole in the pump. I wanted to see how much fuel was passing through before any cleaning and then I will check again after cleaning. That way, if I do a good job, I will know how the difference between bad and good.Note that there are openings at the sides of the square brass plug inside the smaller O-ring. Be sure to hit those, and every other orifice, with compressed air after cleaning and rinsing.
I can't be sure whether the ultrasonic cleaner and distilled water has done an adequate job of cleaning all the jets and passages in the carb. So, I amy still soak them in Chemdip. I would hate to out it all together only to find out that I should have soaked in Chempdip even after the ultrasonic cleaning in distilled water. On the other, if I soak it in chemdip, I will not know if ultrasonic cleaning in distilled water is adequate. This is a decision point I need to think some more.Wow, that really got the patina off everything! Ultrasonic cleaners rock on cleaning carbs.
