Dave is the master, but in my opinion if the carb has been sitting more than a year or so you are just better off replacing it from the get-go.

carb.

the bike has been layed up for about 20 years.but i took the carb. off and had it cleaned out along time ago.but i guess i'am in for a major rebiuld and that is y i'am here to seek out some help.i have striped the motor down before when a valve spring broke and the valve went throught the top of the piston.i put her back together and it started,so i am goin to try it again.

cbs, I just visited your neck of the woods. What great riding! I guess you get most of your parts through the mail? Or are you near the big city?

I didnt make the rally but I really enjoyed Nova Scotia. The people and the natural landscape were A1. Thompsons had some great food and I will always remember the ride!

PS: Dave is the man.
