The guy said he rebuilt the carburetor with a kit.
Guess what, more than likely that is where the trouble lies and I say that because in my experience, many rebuilds don't work.
An intake leak was the nice way of me saying "YOU F'D UP BY REBUILDING IT !"
In the future I'll be glad to come in like an ignorant bvttfart and call people names and telling them they are stupid,
seeing how it sure looks like some folks would prefer that.
But for now I thought I would use tact, I suppose you are right that I was stupid in that regard.
Either the kit, the rebuild, or something with the carburetor installation didn't go right.
I say that because in my experience, so many rebuilds don't work out that it's as easy to replace the entire carburetor with a new one, and for that to happen, the PRESENT carb needs to come OFF!
Which is accomplished by looking for intake leaks!
And more than likely that is where the trouble is, that carburetor needs to be pulled, thrown out, and a new one put on.
At least that is what I would have done.
But it costs MONEY to do that, MONEY the guy was NOT willing to spend because if he HAD been willing to SPEND it he would have already bought a NEW ONE! You GET THAT?!
So I was trying to put it to the man GENTLY!
And for any of that to happen the carburetor needs to come off.
An intake leak was me trying to guide the man in that general direction!
An intake leak was the nice way of me saying "YOU F'D UP THE REBUILD!"
