Re: [T3] carb tune up ?'s


If it takes a full turn to get action on the air idle screw, that's probably
OK. But it could also mean that you have an air leak in your throttle shaft
bushing or at the manifold to head gasket.

Carefully tap the fuel tube in with a hammer. Then, use a small punch to
pinch it in by tapping on the tube inlet on the carb body. Don't go
overboard on the pinching it doesn't take much. Red Loctite is a good idea.
