I'm curious to know if a worn accelerator pump push rod bushing may be a contributor to my dripping...? Could the slop allow the rod to actuate the piston to cause the dripping on the one carb that is still dripping? Just a theory I'm thinking about since when I hold the throttle firmly closed I still get some droplets from the squirters on that one carb..... These are cranky old Italian IDAs.


Yes,, Blacklineracing.net has the old Knurl'r that I had made to run through the bushing to tighten up the bushings in the Pump rod shaft hole..

Thanks Art, the carbs are on their way. Smack 'em around so they behave right when those red headed step bastards get back.
