Re: [T3] T3 Weekend work (shocks and carbs - long)


<x-flowed>
I opened the top of the carb and peered in: there was no
petrol in there, yet none could go in. I then noticed a few small metal
pieces at the bottom of the chamber underneath the floater:
1. A thin metal rod about 2-3cm long
2. A small bearing
3. A cylindrical metal object that had a threaded hole in the inside (the
cylinder was about 5mm in diameter and about 7mm long).




I wonder if it could be the pipe for the high speed jet. I had one of these fall out of one of my carbs on the trip back from Parma. It is a pipe maybe 3 mm in diameter and 3 cm long. Is supposed to be stuck in the carb top, pointing straight down. When mine fell out the car still run fine except for a miss at 70 mph or so.
