Re: Down the rabbit hole, blow through turbo 140 build smoking smiley

Joel and JO: it is difficult to solder on
those small parts and ensure afterward you
have made a good seal. The tiniest of
pinholes will allow fuel to seep inside
and fill float with fuel.

I submerged my floats for a couple of
weeks before deciding I had soldered
that tiny side hole fully. I had several
that failed that test too. Then I was
afraid to try and solder a second time,
I was afraid the foam inside would be
saturated in fuel and explode on the
bench.

I am probably to blame for single handedly
causing a shortage of late floats.

best wishes, Steve

If I have issues I will try something else. grinning smiley drinking smiley

Dave is definitely the blow through man, so I'm sure it will work fine. Did you ask him what he uses for float height?

BTW really fine work

The carbs are mounted and the linkage installed.
