Default Re: Carb expert needed

The most common way the needle gets bent, that I have seen, is that someone installs the GAV housing with the needle screwed into housing, if they tighten housing too much, the needle can be bent.

Solution: Remove needle from housing before installing housing.

FYI for those that may not know it:

The housing is a tapered pipe thread so do not over tighten it or use a standard tap to clean out the threads in the casting.

I use small amount of "Seal All" sealer in yellow tube on threads ... it's fuel proof.
