Title: Diaphrams
Post by: twangin4u on May 26, 2020, 04:02:26 PM
I saw somewhere on here (can't find it again) where somebody replaced their diaphrams and cut the top plastic ring and used a thin washer and a c-clip.  Was that successful? If so, how thick of a washer?

The conclusion was that they don't let the slides go all the way up.

Because of the material.. so I take it they can't be ordered of the same material then? Reason im wondering is cause I have another set of carbs in pretty rough shape except the diaphrams look new.  I guess I was more interested in if the c- clip and washer would hold the rubber in place well enough and seal properly
