[T3] carb tune up ?'s


    I finally got a chance to work on Phillip after 4 months delay,
and I found the carb problem by accident.  The reason one Solex was
just dribbling  the gas undsgleration" was not the diaphragm or
tube plugged or some other overhaul worthy event.  The linkage to the
accel. pump arm had lost a cotter pin and washer!  10 cents later, no
more problems!
    Also, I would like to thank whomever suggested the 2" rubber
plumbing joint to lay the Uni-Syn carb balancer on.  It worked like a
charm.  I have a question on balancing flow and setting idle etc.:
Muir suggests turning the idle air screws "tiny amounts" until the
RPM's start to drop.  The only change I get is with large amounts,
like 1 full turn. Is that normal?
    One more question.  The carb gas inlet pipe pulled out when I
replaced the fuel line.  I used Loctite and replaced, but this worries
me.  What is the proper way to fix this?  Knurl the brass tube and
repress?
