Of Air & Fuel

Mix, ignite and bang! Well that’s the simple idea. Getting it to work is more subtle. So I find myself with disassembled carburetors and new seals, gaskets and o-ring as well as a shiny new needle jet in an attempt to smooth up my throttle action. It was lumpy and low on power last weekend.


An intricate little device, but Amals are fairly straight forward and once you’ve taken it apart and put back together knowing what each component does it becomes more approachable.
