Hands come in different sizes and shapes. When choosing a tool for the job picking a tool that fits your hand makes the work more efficient. A handle too large or too small will cause early fatigue because of over or under gripping. How do you decide what is the right size tool for you?
The first step is to determine the size of your hand. According to: Champney 1979: Muller Borer1981: NASA 1978; The 50th percentile hand length for male is 7.5”, female 7.2”. Grip diameter 1.9” male, 1.7” female
To measure your hand size measure the distance from your wrist crease to the tip of your middle finger with the palm open. (see image below) You will use this figure to determine your grip size. Hand 2
Rebuilding a carb is actually a fairly quick and easy process that requires little more than a few basic tools, a cleaner, and a carburetor kit. Before the advent of fuel injection in performance vehicles, rebuilding the carb was a routine procedure, performed in garages and backyards across the country. These days, few of us have a carbureted vehicle serving as daily transportation, but a vast majority of hot rods, race cars, and weekend toys still use carbs. As a simple mechanical device, a carb is reliable, relatively cheap, and long lasting. For the most part there is little to wear out, but dirt, debris, and deposits can take a toll, even rendering a carb inoperative. A carb kit will include the typical wear components, as well as new gaskets and seals. We had a 750-cfm #6212S carb off a jet boat application, along with a Walker 15271A kit. This is how they went together.
Our #6212 Carter AFB is a 750-cfm unit for a marine application. The carb has been on duty since the early '70s and will be good for decades to come with a simple rebuild.
Finding the correct carb rebuild kit is very important to ensure that your carburetor runs correctly, the first time. Spending a little time now researching your carburetor will help you get the correct kit.
Common carburetor confusion:
Not All Rochester 4bbls are Quadrajets- Rochester also produced a 4-Jet Carburetor up till 1966. The 4-Jet is completely different than any Quadrajet.
Dirt bike clutch and brake levers are amongst the most-used components on our bikes, given they're what allow us to really control the motorcycle.
It's why it's important these two parts are always working as they should, and why you should have the right ones on your motorbike.A carburetor replacement will typically cost anywhere from $500 to $2000, sometimes more or less depending on the make and model of the car, and whether you’re installing a performance carburetor or a fuel efficiency one.By comparison, rebuilding a carburetor might cost only $200 to $500. But this isn’t always an option, and a rebuilt carburetor usually won’t be as efficient as a brand new aftermarket one. Either way, you’ll want to discuss these two options with your mechanic.The carburetor is an engine component mounted on the intake manifold that atomizes fuel and mixes it with air. This fuel mixture is then internally combusted in your engine’s cylinders, producing power. So it goes without saying your carburetor is an important car part.Over time, the carburetor will need some adjustments to maintain the proper idling performance and to keep the fuel mixture correct. But as the carburetor gets older, these adjustments essentially stop functioning as intended, and you’ll end up faced with one of two options: replace the carburetor, or have it rebuilt.A carburetor hasn’t been installed on a new car sold in America since the early 1990s; carburetors started getting phased out in the ’80s, and fully went extinct with the advent of modern fuel injector systems. So if you’re having carburetor trouble, your car is older and needs special care!
