Post Need photo of spring attachment on carbs

I am looking for photos of the starter rod (#46102) as well as the spring assembly's for the rod. The parts diagrams found online are too simple to tell how the springs actually attach to the carb body and in which direction the rod sits on each carb. Any help would be much appreciated!

I would suggest you watch the video by Roach on Carb Rebuilding. That should be your best bet as you will have a good visual and audio on the different parts of the carbs. Roach has several videos linked here and all have been highly recommended for their excellent information. You can do a search to find the link. I am sure others will soon join in with their helpful information also.

Good luck.

Unfortunately I don't think this was well documented in those videos.

I was able to get a decent look at a picture showing the spring assembly on VoipDoc's ear shave page and then through trial and error figured out the rest. Thanks for being there guys!

I just want to reiterate the value of making a digital camera a must have tool for any first time disassembly project. Things go back together so much easier when you have a reference point to look back on.
