Putting the carbs back together tonight and was down to putting the choke and brackets back on. Got to the bracket with the spring, began the wind-back and - "POING!" - off went the spring and the copper ferrule. THe spring landed in front of me, after bouncing off the garage door. The ferrule? I have no freakin' idea. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Anybody got an extra copper ferrule? :doh:

??????? Looked in the parts list and didn't see a listing for a Copper Ferrule.
What is it? Where would I find it in the parts list?

I checked Ayers last night and they're calling it a "collar." I guess I could call it a collar. I called it everything else last night. :mad:

And, yes, Doug, those carbs will be the death of me. The sad part is that after soaking the carb body in The Can o' Death for two days, the a/f port looked spanky clean, as did all other jets and such. So I was excited that perhaps *this* time I'd gotten the lead out. Alas.... I'll probably find it the day my order from Cheap Cycle shows up. :doh:
