Carb disassembly warning
« on: January 24, 2017, 07:34:09 PM »
I screwed up today, the accelerator pump pivot arm is held on with a screw, it is left hand thread !  Too late for me, luckily I have a parts carb, hope this keeps someone from doing what I did.

Thanks Torque! I'm getting ready to tear mine apart and didn't know that.

I made that mistake about 2 weeks ago. Luckily the parts carb came in handy. The rebuild only cost me a gallon of carb cleaner plus the 'screw' up lol.

I wish I had thought to make a post about it maybe it would have saved you some trouble.  :-[
