Fell in from where?

I had my carbs of a few days prior to clean the idle circuits... :oops:


Oooooh, ouch! I'm always super paranoid when I pull my carbs about that happening. I usually remove all the washers from the manifold studs before lifting the carbs up, and then immediately stuff a rag or something down each manifold opening.
The washer didn't eat up your combustion chamber?

Yeah it did quite a bit, but I've cleaned up the burrs and just going to run it as is for now. I'm usually pretty paranoid about that too, but this time I wasn't so careful :oops:

My plans are getting new heads for my other engine, and then rebuild this one when I have the other one running again.

I tried, but sadly no. :cry: Even if I would have got it back together, I still have the overheating issue that I haven't solved yet.
