THROTTLE BODY DISASSEMBLY
1. Remove Idle Adjusting Needle
Due to the close tolerance of the
Throttle Valve fit that is required, and the fact that the Idle Discharge
holes are drilled in relation to a proper fitting valve, Throttle Valve
and Shaft should not be removed. Standard carburetor cleaning solvent and
compressed air will serve to clean all passages.
INSPECTION OF PARTS
1. Check Floats for dents or wear at hinge pin
holes, replace if necessary.
2. Examine float needle and seat, if grooved
replace with a factory tested and matched float needle seat and gasket
3. Check choke shaft for wear in the bores. If
worn excessively replace part.
4. If throttle shaft or valve appears loose due
to wear, replace throttle body assembly.
5. Inspect Pump Link and holes in pump and
throttle levers, if worn out of round, they should be replaced.
6. If gaskets appear hard and brittle, always
replace with a new one to insure proper seal.
