Thanks everyone! I put gas in her for the 1st time since rebuild, she fired right up! Just in time, I guess we are expecting a good storm on Saturaday, Now I can't wait to test her out on snow!

Here is the carb I rebuilt on this one. If you saw it before it was full of water and rusted solid ( the needle and float pin did not want to come out) I could have bought new, but I like using original equipment if I can.

Just curious Chris, how do you get those carbs that clean and new looking? Great job on the restoration.

I second the carb question!!!! If you could lay it out in a step by step with pics it would be a huge help. I am going to try to finish my rebuild and the carb and intake will be the next in line for a complete overhaul. This is what it looks like today.

Ok 1st I dimantle the carb and soak it in carb cleaner for a day. After I rinse it off I remove the welch plugs, throtle and choke shafts and anything else that is not part of the main body. Then I just blast it with glass beads in my blast cabinet. After that blow it off with compressed air, spray it down good with carb cleaner, then I soak it again just to be sure every little port is clean. I use Q-tips to clean needle seat bore and torch tip cleaner tool to get into all the little pin holes. biggest thing is take your time. One more thing, if you don't want to remove welch plugs, then you have to block all the ports and holes off with tape, screws or little plugs before you can bead blast it.
