    sup fellas,

    so i finished the carb up last night, and finally got a flash card reader so i could upload some pics.

    here's a nice before:

    it took a while, but the majority of the gunk came off. i'm thinking bout takin some of the rusty stuff off and wire brushing it (old school style, not side grinder, ha ha.).

    other than that, she's done.

    after:

    i'm pretty pumped. i really enjoyed takin it apart, puttin it back together, and stuff.

    stuff = not feelin my face b/c of inhalin too many cleaner and thinner fumes. ha ha.

    Are we going to be seeing a thread in a day saying "Hey, I took my carb apart and now it doesn't run? :doh: I'm just playing. I'm going to do the same thing here pretty soon. I actualy bought a used carb and two rebuild kits. I'm going to practice on the used carb and then give it a go with mine.

    Posting up your triumph before running it is bad luck. :eek:

    Carb dip would do a better job of cleaning it and it won't give you a bad buzz with a head ache from inhaling all the fumes.

    hey jp,

    you need to post up some pics of your cruiser.

    guys, it's really nice lookin. in fact, i almost got in it thinkin it was mine. ha ha, right...


    oh, and tewlman, just buy a rebuild kit for your carb. spending the 20-25 bucks will motivate you to do it yourself.

    it was really a lot fun. i understand what all goes on a lot better now.


    y'all have a good one, gotta get some sleep for class tomorrow,
