Thanks everybody, I’ll try petrol first then move on if it doesn’t succeed. The slow/idle jet has already disintegrated in one carb, so taking it slowly from this point on. All other aspects of the carbs are in great nick, accept for the link bar, which is very corroded.

Seaman - same for me with the link bar. I have two sets of carbs with both having badly worn and corroded link bar. Not sure how I will get these sorted yet but any ideas welcome

Hi, Cantarauk.

If I can work out how to separate the bar from the hinge posts I’ll polish the feck out of it then have if zinced. Failing that I’ll get my hands on some s/s bar and take it from there.

Just need some tips on dismantling.

The bar is pinned in place on the near side, drill the pin out and you can start to remove it. To secure it again you tap a thread into the hole and use a small screw etc to hold it in place

Thanks, Oddjob.

The end float was suggesting as much, but thanks for the insight. I’ll have a pop tomorrow. 7 days soaking in petrol and still no sign of the float pins moving...will engage in some autopunch action tomorrow with a post spacer and wire support to prevent the posts breaking...maybe.

Cheers

Apologies, Tigger. Just noticed your Jan 17 post.

I’ve done a number of searches using various clues, but haven’t come up with your photos. Could you send me to the relevant item please.

Thanks in anticipation.

From this to this. 25 mins at 55degs in Ultrasonic bath using 30% concentration of Allendales’ best brew. Also the stubborn float pins virtually fell out!

Thanks to Ashimoto and Charlie J et al.

Check the brass pipes in the float bowls for cracks whilst it's that clean, they have been known to split and you'll search for ever to try and find why there's petrol on the floor.
