need some help taking apart the carbs

Post by blackbeardcutlass » Mon Jul 14, 2008 7:34 pm

I am working on a 67 scrambler and currently rebuilding the carbs, they had absolutley no movement in them other than the choke, after a good deal of carb cleaner everything finally started moving again so i was able to disassemble them, the only trouble i have is removing the floats from the body, any suggestions?

Blackbeard, Welcome to the 305 forum. I would like to sugest you read the "fuel and carburation" threads, you may find the info your looking for there. A service manual would be a big help too. I see some are available for download here on the forum (don't remember just where). Removing your floats should be an easy thing to do, just pull the pivot pin and lift out the float. Again, there is alot of info here to take advantage of, so read the other threads and get to know the members here. Enjoy,Kustommusic

Hey Blackbeard,

Where in Missouri?

I'm in Joplin and have a '65 scrambler.

Welcome aboard.

Float pins

You might try taking a small finishing nail and a small hammer to try and gently tap the pin out of the towers. BE CAREFULL and do it GENTLY. Once you get enough of the pin out, you can grip it with a pair of needle nose pliars and finish. Berylman's Carb Cleaner works best for me. JMHO
