Most GSResources readers are ready and
willing to work on their chosen GS model. We get many requests for
assistance on how to do a various number of things to these
machines, one of which deals with carburetor problems. In this
pictorial, John has tried to give us the step by step process
which will allow us to work on those gummy carburetors and plugged
up fuel jets.
So, clear the decks and work bench -- and put on
some ratty clothes to get ready for this feature. Positive
comments and feedback welcome.
Note #1: Follow the images from Left to
Right, Top To Bottom for the proper sequence. Also, there is not
a "slide 15" so, don't go looking for it!
Note #2: Bill
Kingston has brought it to our attention that the references
to a Pilot Air Screw may be incorrect. He states that on
these carbs use a Fuel Flow Screw instead. This means that
you are controlling fuel running through the passages with this
adjustment, not air. So when turning the screw
counterclockwise you are increasing fuel flow and when you turn
it clockwise you decrease fuel flow.
