Default Re: File or Heat Tilly?

I have a Tillotson carb with some warping between the halves so I thought I'd try out the heat method to flatten it out. I'm a Zenith guy, so I figured I have nothing to lose if something goes wrong. I put the carb into my BBQ with C clamps for an hour, between 350 - 400 (it varied a little bit at first). I let it cool for 2 days, yes, I got busy and forgot it was in there until this morning, LOL. It worked great! When I have time I'm going to try it out on my Tudor.
