Re: Marvel Carb Adjustments?

My experience with the Marvel. GAV- 1/4 to 1/2 turns open. Rarely any need to adjust the GAV. Just a momentary pull on the choke during cold start. I like it so much I bought a spare, just in case.

Re: rear brake drums

Having the same issue as "jhowes". After installing the rebuilt brake assemblies on the axle flange the new drum will not slide over the shoes. Key in place or not the drum rubs against the shoes.
