NC35 Carbs Seized

Post by SiberianAnya » Sun Jul 14, 2019 9:30 am

Due to a 3 year stint abroad, my little bike had been sat in my brothers garage gathering dust, on trying bring her back to life I have discovered that my carbs are seized closed. We have broken them down to individual carbs and only one butterfly will turn and return but it still feels like treacle and is slow. The other three now move but don't return. Is there a way to salvage them or are they well and truly goosed?

If you have access to one of those ultra sonic baths that could loosen whatever crud is keeping them from smooth operation. The carbs are fussy. I bit the bullet and dismantled down to component parts and rebuilt. Worked for me.

Had this with a set of NC24 carbs - spent 2 years in my back garden as I'd forgotten about them...

Dunked them into a bath of thinners & kept moving the shafts - eventually got the shafts all moving together - did then ultrasonic them.
