walbro carb issue

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello Im just bringing this up as I had an issue with my walbro carb. When I was at huckfest on Sunday my motor did not want to come back to an Idel. At first I thought it was a linkage problem and tried to do some adjusting. no luck. Tonight I pulled the carb of the motor and had a look. What i found was the thottle plate on the carb had rotated a 1/4 turn and it was stopping the carb from closeing all the way. I pulled the plate out and found that when it rotated in the carb body it caused the hole where the rod goes threw to become stiff and a small peice of aluminium to be wedged between the rod and the the carb body. After a little polish and a pick to remove it. I reinstalled the plate and all is well again. Just thought I would share my experance incase some one else is having a simular issue.
What do you mean , I can land upside down
