Dang, This is becomming a weekly thing..... I may need more help than I thought :D !

This is just a quick "Friday Good Humor" post for those who are fairly new at tinkering with these carbs. I was cleaning and specing my carb last night (it was filthy inside!!), and was noticing what appeared to be a slight varnish film on the carb plate, engine side. Me being an absolute genius, I deceided to check the slider action to see if it seemed as gummed up as it looked. With a sharp eye on the carb plate throught the throat, I proceeded to twist the throttle wheele to actuate the slider to check the action...............Anyone want to take guess as to what I experienced at this point..........anyone, anyone????

How about a perfect stream of gas centered on the pupil of my right eye :) :D !!! Awwh yeah, super big brain here, well thought out through for sure. Anyways, a good 5 minutes of washing and the sting went away, and I was able to complete the task at hand.

So, just another lesson learned on really thinking though one's actions, take heed people, or next time it could be you :D !

The one, the only, Dodger :D :D

Dodger, Thats what happens when you live in the republic of Boulder for to long. I think it's from the haze off of all the burning couches or something. :)

You need to do the BK mod -
that sting should go away in 3 minutes, not 5 - its far too rich :)
