Carburetor RT-08 1929
« on: January 06, 2021, 12:59:42 PM »
Hi
The small hole beside the acceleration assembly has no threading just a simple hole.
Shall it be some plug there (or screw)?

Where can I buy the leather sealing for the acceleration pump? (thecarburetorshop.com ?)

Check carefully it should take a threaded needle to meter the accelerator .  Also the commercial leather seals did not seal well for me . Better to make your own . If i remember used 1-1/2" OD fender washer as guide to cut out and then used on piston to push into pill bottle to see how it fit . The bottle has a taper to help start and be cut off and used to guide into carb . Must also lube well to help shape .
