First off, I always wondered why my carbs would ---- up so badly, it only happens to me on the Honda carbs, never on anything else. Well, I tried fixing my carb to no avail so I got frustrated and went to a dismantler and bought a carb ($75 w/ 30 day return policy damn it, the price for peace of mind) and the guy told me that if my carb gets flipped upside down it won't work. I was like Holy shit, why couldn't anyone tell me this before???????? I thought it only happened on those CCVC carbs
So this is my warning to you: never let your carb flip upside down, that includes rebuilding. It won't work!
Another thing, he said to check the first 4 #s on the little tag on the back, he said if it didn't match my origninal to bring it back because honda made about 7 variations of the carb. I know there were SLIGHT differences among them but I didn't know there were 7 of them. I couldn't match the numbers cuz the tag fell off my original but I put this carb in and it works (for longer than the previous I hope!!!)
Don't flip your carb!!!!
