if it is marked "a". it will leak even with a rubber tipped needle, the fuel inlet dia./neeedle seat is huge in comparision with a non "a"'s.
treats have the jets now, i thought the float high was set by bending the brass on the float.
sachs are weird back scavenging neanderthals and need that little bit of restriction in addition to a shaped airbox that induces a backwave at WOT, just to break the 30 mph on an A jug,
the d crank on an A is somewhat problematic setting the timing and clutch to work right after modding the intake side of the piston skirt to accept the new crank. i know it works. it was like that when i got her 4 years ago and she would top out at 38 mph. that was with questionable rings, when the three gang clutch went (broken pad) she never ran right.
i have it all together, even have a new stator/flywheel/pointset on there now it is this carb, i hate the angled intake crap too. maybe April is runtime.
all them batavus reeds WillD were crap, i am trying to outsource them but no paypal no tikkee, it say $12 add $16 shipping and the $12 outside bank transaction fee then paypals cut,
it would be cheaper than buying ten of them, to ship myself in a container to china and buy them, but gettin shipped out of china is costly. port of LA to China is only $300 for a 52' container, i think its $900 - $1200 return.
