I think I F'd up my carbs


Recommended Posts

I finally got to the point of my re-build on my 71 240z that I have purchased new exaust system and bought a carb rebuild kit from Ztherapy.

The first thing they say about cleaning your carbs is "DO NOT put them in a bucket of cleaner"

Well when I bought this car it did not run and I changed plugs, points, filters, and all the normal stuff to try to get the thing to run. Well one of the first things I did was stick those old dirty looking carbs in a bucket of cleaner.

I'm sure all the parts Ztherapy said would disolve have. Has anyone else ever done this?

What do I need to do?

where can I get the replacement parts which I have ruined.

I will of course call ZTherapy today.

Thanks guys,

I talked to Ztherapy and they said pretty much all the things I need are in the re-build kit. They are going to send me some new rubber for the float bowls.

I look very forward to getting this car on the road.

Well you were right. The rebuild went well and was very easy. The needle and nozzle didn't want to line up right but thankfully I have 4 screw carbs and was able to adjust the tube the nozzle slides into.
