    I have forgotten how to take the carb bowl apart to check my jet.

    Please help.

    Hmmm,



    Numbers Please......




    Well.....I'll cut the chase......

    Remove the high speed adjuster on the bottom of the bowl, The main jet is behind it. It must be removed before you can pull the top off the carb, But if you only need to get to the jet that can be done as above without removing the carb from the engine or opening the carb....

    Good Luck

    Thanks, I drew a blank until a little later. All I could remember was that I had modified a screwdriver to fit.

    On another thread I was asked what the trick was. Thanks again
