not for certain, the gaskets had seen better days and the diaphragm at the bottom of the second pic is all frayed around the outside. More than that though the screw that holds the cover only had 3 or the 4 screws!

However, the underside of the carb body by this bolt....



was cleaner than the rest so perhaps this bolt is the culprit...

does anyone know the purpose of this bolt? Does it have a gasket?

pretty sure that bolt should have a crush washer or copper washer on chap else fuel will leak from it, also if its been over tightened it will leak Wink

make sure the float level is correct when you rebuild or it will overflow or not hold enough

I'll take it out tomorrow and have a look, any way of testing it before I refit it?

Surely the float will find it's own level?

I wouldn't re-use a crush washer, for the cost of a new one I'd replace them!

Have you been drinking tonight scoops? Nomates said a deadline not a budget lol and I'll have you know I'd never pay an old lady a monkey for a tin box... Your harming my rep, that's like slander! I'd pay a bottle at most and knock it out for two large Wink

Scrap it may well be lol it's not my lack of mechanical knowledge that makes me so downhearted....erm....actually yes it is.

Ok so one carb stripped and rebuilt and another out and stripped but ran out of carb cleaner and light, only hope somewhere is open tomorrow that has some.

Been on a forty mile roundtrip today to get the correct screw to hold the diaphragm plate in place. Proper old school machine/mechanics workshop...with a rolling road Very Happy top find I reckon, will be visiting there again.
