I am just completing the carb rebuild on my G10 but but i can't quite get the spacer off the head. Whats the easiest way of removing that? I want to reseat the gaskets and maybe put a bit of "form a gasket" on it. I noted that the mating surfaces look a bit pitted so i want to take off and have a proper look at it first.
Don't want air leaks around there.
The removal of the old main emulsifier nozzle turned into a bit of a saga. When i managed to track down a service nozzle ( with the undercut threads - Carb rescue to the rescue!) i decided i could take my old one out. It had different ideas and seized solid in the carb body when part way out. Further force then took the slot away and it was well and truly stuck.
I tried a crappy easy out which snapped (as they always seem to!) leaving hardened steel in brass in ally casting. In for a penny at this point so drilled out further in the drill press and then tried a better kind of easy out, hex shanked, with a mini bit on one end and generally a LOT chunkier! This in the cordless drill did the trick and it popped out nicely leaving nice clean threads in the carb body.
Some spray solvents and compressed air blasts, the new nozzle, float adjustment (to 3.5mm) and when i have managed to get the spacer off for a clean up and refit, we should be good to give it a try!
