Racing machines need to be maintained and serviced regularly. One part that seems to be neglected is the carburetor, this may be because a good carburetor continues to work s even though it is getting slower ever so slightly. It eventually comes to a point where you have to adjust it radically different than when the carburetor was new.
All parts work together in the carburetor, but some part need servicing more often than others. Below Is a List on recommended changes: Pump diaphragm , inlet valve diaphragm and there gaskets every three races
Note: one two plate pump stack carburetors if rules allow it is highly recommended to use a .040” thick pump gasket part # 219 main diaphragm and gasket every five races Inlet needle every 5 races if using E-85 or higher ethanol, methanol , Nitro or special mix racing gasoline
Note: Unless there is an issue do not replace the inlet seat as regular service. It is not a part that wears; the threads in
the carburetor body are very fragile if stripped can not be repaired.
