stupid question, but ive had a carburetor sitting for awhile and the shafts don't seem to open as smoothly as they should. any after removing the butterflies and linkage whats the easiest way to remove the throttle shaft? do they press out?
Make sure you deburr the thread holes for the butterfly screws BEFORE trying to pull the shafts out. Otherwise you will score the bores and it will vacuum leak.
When you put the shafts back in, assemble the butterflies to the shafts lightly then hold up to a light and check for proper alignment. Once butterflys are seated correctly tighten and stake the screws.
