Carter ETW1 Carb Rebuild

Post by G. Miskovsky »

All,

Getting ready to do a complete rebuild of a ETW1. Was suggested to me that I use JB Weld on the access plugs by a specialist. Never done that before, my thoughts are that it kind of defeats the "access".

Any experience with this?

Agree! Now working through fouling spark plugs. Must be mixture or weak spark.
