Singles / B40 c15 carb incontinence!
« on: 10 November, 2017, 19:03:24 »
Hi folks, I'm pottering around on a B40 with a c15 engine, which is how it was when I bought it. I'm having problems with the monobloc carbi every now and then it dies while on the road as if running out of juice. Sometimes it pees petrol out of the tickler valve, after a while all is well and off we go.
Today it did all the above but wouldn't go again until I had took the jet out and blew through it, then managed to get home (6 miles)
I took the carb to bits and found the slide to be scored quite bad along with the bore, is it possible to polish these out?
Last year I fitted a new float needle and seat with a rubber tip which was supposed to stop the float sticking. The plastic float could be sticking on the carb body and flooding until it runs out the tickler hole?
Any help would be much appreciated as I want to keep running it through the winter months.
