  • 51 Champion carb rebuild

    I'm rebuilding my Carter WE 715s. The rebuild kit from SI did not come with the little orange gasket/washers for the metering rod jet, passage plug, nozzle passage plug and ball retainer plug. I've tried to get them at a carb rebuild shop and auto parts stores. No Luck. Can I reuse the old ones. Thanks ahead of time, John

    If they are hard fiber washers, you ought to be able to reuse them. If you know anyone in your area who has been mechanic-ing for years, maybe you could sweet-talk him into letting you root through his box of left-over carb kit parts. I have such a box, and it comes in handy all the time.

    Alternatives might include soft copper washers, or O-rings, depending on the nature of the joint to be sealed.
