My idea of git-r-done is an oxy-acetylene torch, a 2lb cross-pein hammer and a roll of duct tape :roll:


Matt,

No shop is complete without a BFH and a blue wrench... yet, like the making of sausage and laws, they are disconcerting for the uninitiated! :shock:

John, you may already know this, but you could probably sell all you can make between now and Feb 15 and 16. This would be at DSCF, just down the road from you in Sneads Fl. If you have not been, you really need to come to Mr. E's.

That's great! Look forward to talking to you. Roger, Steve and I will be coming through Dothan on the 14th. We will wave as we go by. :D :D :D

The Steiner carb kit arrived and everything fit perfectly. Steiner IHS825 is the "big" kit and includes the main jet. Put everything back together and I now have a good idle. Need to adjust the carb-to-governor linkage but discovered someone broke it at the clevis years ago and welded it... so now I need to find a new linkage. :(

Still looking into making some of these carb plates, just need to find a good local source for steel.

Follow this link for some tips on making your own linkage. I did it...and I dont own a milling machine. :D

That worked well - but this one broke at the clevis and someone ran weld over the rod, nut and clevis...

I have a 1' long piece of 1/2 thick x 6" wide aluminum angle stock. I think that would work well and it would be easy to put in a vise and use. I'm just not sure how hard it would be to mill up.

As I recall, someone posted a drawing of a carb straightening jig long ago. No time to search for it right now.

Made up some of these jigs and brought them to DSCF but didn't sell them all. Posted them in the "for sale" section, if anyone is still interested.

Metal depot or Mcmaster-Carr, few bucks for some aluminum, literally 5 minutes with a drill and you are done.
The 1/2 inch thick aluminum will work, no need for a mill. Lap with some wet dry sandpaper on a table saw bed or on a piece of window glass until smooth.
Lay out the holes, drill, no need to tap the mounting holes, just drill and use some #10 screws to clamp the carb to the plate. Remember, you are bending pot metal not titanium. Use some washers for the #10 screws to raise the low areas to aid in bending the carb body.
