Default Re: clean that carb

Purdy Swoft, anyone who drives a Model A, or any car old enough to use points should be smart enough to carry a spare set with them, on the road, right? And I challenge anyone to find a set of points, for any application, that are made in the USA.
alexiskai, my carb was not very "dirty". I simply disassembled it and used compressed air to blow out all the passages and jets, then reassembled it in reverse order. The mounting gasket and the gasket between the two halves of the carb body remained intact. There are not very many pieces to a Model A carb and not much chance of putting something back in wrong. There are videos on the 'net that you can watch to get familiar with the internals before you tear into yours that might make you feel more confident.
