I don't have a whole lot on this topic, but had
a few notes to share...
Yeah... that's what it looked like during the
rebuild. NOT for the fainthearted :) But if you're patient,
and keep yourself organized, it's really pretty simple and
straightforward. Here's a few things I learned...
The instructions that come with the rebuild kit
are pretty good. I didn't have any issues with them, and found
them easy to follow. FYI... I bought my rebuild kit from Moss
Motors, Part No. 375-598.
I didn't need any of those special carb tools
they sell... like the toolkit, or that special little wrench they
sell. Bought it, but didn't need any of it. Maybe they
just weren't necessary for my carbs... not sure. I should have
waited until the need arose (or didn't) and saved the money!
I found the SU Rebuild DVD extremely
helpful!! Both while doing the rebuild as well as the setup
once back on the car. It wasn't helpful in the sense of
following it step by step, but more like... I'd get stuck on
something during the build process, and would be unsure the correct
way to proceed... so I'd watch the video to learn the answer.
I ended up just playing the DVD over and over while I was doing the
rebuild... sort of as background noise... paying attention when it
got to parts that sounded interesting to me. FYI, the video I'm
talking about here is Part No. 211-036 from Moss.
Setup once back on the car was the hardest part
by far. I found the original HD Tuning Service Sheet - AUC
9622B - to be very helpful. I found a PDF of it online, but
honestly can't remember where I got it... so I'm including
a link to it here for
those who might find it as useful as I did.
I bought a Gunsen Carbalancer to get the carbs
synchronized. What a cheap piece of crap!! I can't
believe I spent money on this thing. It was marginally
helpful, but I really didn't trust what it was telling me, because
the flowmeter part of the device was so cheap. To "finalize"
my synchronization, I ended up just doing the old school method
shown in the AUC 9622B document.
If anyone has any questions about any of this, feel free to send me an email!
