Default File or Heat Tilly?


Many past comments have stated that heating the Tillotson carb to remove warp is the best way to fix the problem.

I have a gap between the halves of the carburetor over the float bowl section. The various repair books state that you should not heat the carb to fix the warp, rather file the pieces to make them fit.

Why do the members seem to support the "heat" method, but the book writers don't ?

I have a "surface plate" that is my work bench and no milling machine and I'm not a machinist.
