Corey I got a 2 bbl on my 71 Fury III that 318 I rebuilt, but it won't
idle once it goes off choke,  it wants to die... ideas?  My
daughter lives off Federal in Denver, maybe she could bring it by after
she comes home for Xmas if you'd like to tackle it.  She's in
Pharma sales and is out in Longmont weekly.

Hello,
        

            I never "rebuild" carbs. Its a waste of
 money. All you get in a carb kit are the parts that you could clean and
 keep anyway. In other words whats the difference between a cleaned
pilot jet, and a new one? Nothing, except you didnt pay for one of them.
 The only parts you should buy would be the needle valve/seat, and a new
 bowl gasket for each carb. My method is as follows: Disassemble each
carb in a place where you will be sure not to lose any parts, a work
bench with a towel or something to work above is good. Boil all jets,
and the carb body in lemon juice, you can use plain water in a pinch.
Save the lemon juice to use it again when you are done. Take a wire
brush, and with a pair of pliers remove one of the bristles. This will
give you a small thin piece of wire to clean out the holes in the jets.
Then reassemble the parts, and viola. You will have a lemony fresh bike!
 My cousin thought that I was insane when I told him to use lemon juice,
 until he tried it. It will give you a clean and nice looking carb. PS:
use your cell phone or a digital camera to take some snaps up close of
the carbs with the bowl removed first, if you think you wont remember
how to put it all back together. It comes in handy.

Thanks

There's a bit more to it than that. . .   But yeah, the citric acid does wonders to a carb and it doesn't rot your hands.  LOL
 
Thanks for the input and Welcome.
 
BTW, I did that years ago, but have gotten in the habit of sending them out because my eyes are not so good anymore.  Most carb kits include what you mentioned, but hard to buy the parts with out getting the kit.  Not worth the hassle for the cost of the kit.

denverr, Corey wasn't asking a "how to" question, he was saying he can do the job for someone who would need it.  You see, it's a part of his living.... Snotty2011-01-30 01:56:13

We always used a carb soak called TYME for all the carbs that we
rebuilt on MerCruisers etc at the marine shop... soak overnight, works
great, water based, won't hurt hands. You can get it at NAPAs and
others by the gallon. Great stuff, I always keep some for carb work.
Just plan on replacing all gaskets.



I'll probably sent the Holley off the FIII out to Denver... when this winter weather breaks!
