No quick fix on this one. The top is warped. Oh boy. I'll have to wait till after the move to fix it up or replace it.

Many jigs around to flatten them. I think most of them are warped.

I found the blue print for the jig. I'll have to get around to it later. We move this week. The the shop will have to be set up. ETC! ETC! ETC! My wife said, "buy a new one, you don't have time to fiddle with a carb when there's something to be done." Don't you just love that kind of attitude. Still, part of owning one of these things is to keep em going.

A video on how to use the jig would be good.

I was talking to a friend today who recommended putting the carb in a can of water and boiling it out after cleaning it. Anybody boiled a card out.
