Mike

So the people in med school watching videos and how to do certain things, their videos aren't spot on?

If you make a video for ANYTHING instructional, you should do your research, read a manual, and check around and make sure the info is 100% correct before sharing it with the world. I'd be pissed if I ran a 4-40 tap in my carb top only later to discover it's a 4-48 thread and messed it up when trying to screw in a new idle tube with 4-48 threads.

Heck, I would be mad if I went out and bought the wrong tap based on her advice.

She may have been working with the assumption that the threads are stripped out and the replacement tube she has available in her kit uses the larger threads she’s quoted.
Either way it’s not something worthy to beat someone down over. If you feel the need reach out to her and give her heads up on how to improve her videos.

Mike, She didn't even know where the threads were. She drilled a hole through the bottom of the carb, used the wrong size tap with an electric drill, put a slot in the idle tube so she could screw it in, and then used JB Weld to close the unnecessary hole she made in the carb bottom. She should have removed the broken threaded end in the carb top, maybe chased it with the correct tap and then inserted the new idle tube with finger pressure.

I have one question for anybody who thinks this video is okay. Would you be happy if you rebuilt your carb exactly as she describes in her video and then find out it is screwed up?

I also have a question for everybody else. How did she screw that idle tube in with the threads being the wrong size?
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I do not think they use her in these videos for her "expertize"

I would think that the pot metal of the carb is soft enough that she could screw it in with a screwdriver in the slot she made in the idle tube.

Now that you mention it, I can see why she recommended cutting the slot. It would make it easier to cross thread it.

I believe the point you are missing here is not everyone in the world approaches an unknown in the same manner you do.

Exhibit A: people who drive into a lake because the GPS said to turn. This video is not for them.
