Mabel Lives Again

Carb KitMabel LivesSo the carb kit that I ordered from Carb Junky arrived in the mail today. After work, I decided to throw in the float, new gasket and give her a try. As always, she fired right up and the anticipation mounted as I waited for the choke to release. Once it released, to continued to idle like her old self. I let her run for about 15 minutes, throttle was responsive and no more rich smelling exhaust. I still need to adjust the mix as she’s idling a little high, but I also need to get the oil changed again since so much fuel had seeped into the case. I’ll get around to that on Friday evening. So for now, she starts right up, cold or hot and idles like her old self. Thanks to everybody who chimed in with advice, especially the folks at thesamba.com.
