    heh, after all these threads on carbs I *STILL* don't have a working carb... rather than rejet my 600 I have been watching a couple 500s on eBay (I actually have two 600s, one real nice, one decent looking, but I think a 500 might go cheaper) but I borrowed an old, small (not sure of size) AFB from JP to verify that I really did have a carb issue. Sure enough I put his carb on and it ran great. But there was no choke. So I scrounged all the parts to put a choke on it from old, ugly carbs, got it working and all hooked up, went for a drive. Everything went well until I got on it... pulled pretty well, and no smoke, but suddenly it won't idle and fuel is dripping out of the driver's side of the carb. So I pull it off again, take it all apart, find some more wasp's nests that I missed before, clean it all up nice and spotless, put new needles and seats in it and a new top gasket, guess what? still won't idle and fuel is running out the driver's side!

    Those new Edelbrocks are looking better every day, let me tell you...

    I just ran a whole can of that GM top engine cleaner (stuff isn't cheap, $10 a can!) through it, too, and some water as well - I was so sure I had the carb issue under control that I figured I'd clean some of the muck out of the chambers and change the oil... :/
