Installing bracket on carb starter plungers - Help!
I decided that Orleans and I were moving too quickly, so I slowed it down. Pulled the radiator (whcih apparently had a previously unknown leak), pulled the carbs (which meant pulling everything I'd busted knuckles on), and broke down the carbs to make sure everything was in working order. All is mostly ok. However, in reinstalling the bracket on the starter plungers, I appear to have an extra plastic washer. And while the spring-loaded side (front carb) is operating smoothly, the rear carb plunger is cranky. Clymers wasn't much help.
Can anyone help me sort out the installation order on the rear? I've got the rod in the bracket, bracket's on the plunger, and the bracket is installed on teh carb via a phillips screw, metal washer, and then a small locking washer, and then there's the screw head. That's it. And then there's this little extra thing. Aside from extra parts, do the starter plungers differ between front and rear carbs, or are they interchangeable?
