I have run into some issues with rebuilding the carb. First is that the top and bottom halves leave too much of a gap in the front. (Sorry no pics.) It seems as if the front screws were tightened too much and the pulled the ears together creating a raised space allowing the surfaces not to mate with each other. The good news is that I showed it to the guys at the machine shop at work and they will see about fixing it for me tomorrow. They will slightly mill the bottom half flat and stone the areas around the front screws flat on the top half. This should make sure the surfaces are true and the gasket will seal any other imperfections. At this point I have nothing to lose.
The second issue is the carb repair kit (LQ33) I ordered from one of the venders seems not to have all the gaskets/washers that are needed. The idle needle and the float needle (2 pieces) are also different than what I pulled out of my carb. The kit looks like this one.
I see this kit with what looks like it has more gaskets that I will need and the float needle (one piece) is the same that came out of my carb.
Does anyone have a specific part number for the kit with everything I need or should I order the second kit pictured?
Update: I just got the carb back from the machine shop. They got to it quick. It is much better then it was before with a slight gap still at the front, but I think the gasket will take care of it. I think they said the gap was .0014 at the front now. They also said that if the gasket doesnot seal it, They have thicker gasket material I can use. I will try and get some pics ip of it tonight.
