    Racing carby

    Having bought a replacement carby late last year, and having the little landie scooting all over the farm, I have a new puzzlement to contend with for 2020.
    Sometimes at idle the engine revs really high, usually after driving for a bit. Sometimes a tap on the pedal will bring it down again, although this is working less often now. Even under the bonnet when I flick the throttle arm it may not decrease the revs, and sometimes it does.
    I am thinking that something in the carby is sticking. All the external levers and springs are fine with the issue apparently directly with the carby. Iíve probably driven 5 kms since putting it in and initially all way well.
    Could there be dirt interfering with the jet???

    If it's not correctly secured to the inlet manifold, ie no leaks.

    The float, the needle, a jet, the butterfly, the emulsion tube, the acc pump, the spring that retains the float pivot, the top gasket, screws and sealing plugs.

    Ive had the wrong jets, the wrong butterfly the wrong choke plate, with the linkages built onto the wrong side of the carbie.

    As much as Ron seems to be able to buy broken stuff, I seem to be able to buy stuff thats incomplete.

    I have tell of a bloke who got a brand new carby for a Saracen that had broken bits inside it with new bits stuffed on top.

    no the idea of that went out when it was realised that the inherent accuracy of using a calendar to time the results was too subject to variation based on the vagaries of human error

    Still working through this issue.
    Is there a screw missing here? I see a threaded opening without an attachment.
