"D"'s Carburators Revision
For 2-3 weeks, my mechanic revisioned "D"'s carbs compleately in a nuts and bold fashion. The first photo will show you how the carbs may "deform" over time thru heat, wear, gaskets and push and pull thru screws (nothing new to you guys I would guess but impressive in photo for a non-professional like me). As a unpleasant effect, the carbs may soaking additional air, a unwanted effect in many senses. Also every part within the carbs have been changed, or aligned anew. The "accelerator pump" membrans replacement being just one prominent example as they started to being stiff and unfunctional as well. When looking at the whole working process to fine adjust all details withsome very fine welding and drilling processes even for some base casket adaptations, I developed even higher respect for that kind of craftmanship.
