Having a pretty bad day today, yesterday wasn't a whole lot better (Windoze update 'killed' wifes computer  ::) )
Ever since truck went in for new air bag inflators it's been 'different'
  Every time Ive taken it into dealers (not very often, even first service' was 'traumatic') the damn thing has come out 'worse' (but cleaner) than when it went in
Truck has been throwing codes for a few weeks but intermittent and doing a quick reset seemed to have fixed things (while I'm waiting for parts)
Well, this morning taking Jaxon to daycare it went onto two cylinders(maybe?) then cut out. It re-started and idled OK but wouldn't go over 1500 rpm
Holding pedal down it eventually 'cleared and ran REALLY well as long as I stayed over 4K
Managed to get to daycare, Jaxon was only about 10 ins later than normal
Damn truck ran like shit for about 2 miles then stopped (in middle of road works, on a bridge over I-4) Lucky for me it was 4 lane reduced to two lane so I pulled over and let it cool down a bit. Two guys in hard hats started coming over but when I said "i'm not parking, I'm breaking down" they went back to whatever
I ended up getting another 3/4 mile to a proper parking lot and walked last 3 miles home (no fun in 80 degree's) 2-1/2 hrs for a 30 min total trip sucked (plus I was probably overheated and dehydrated)
About 2hrs later I cycled back and JUST managed to coax it home (was OK except last 1/2 mile) 
It's now on ramps outside garage, cat way btoo hot to mess with O2 sensors but air control valve is changed.
Hjopefully tomorrow I'll beable to get both O2 sensors changed and things will be back to normal?
It did give an injector code but hopefully it's because of O2 sensors.?
Anyway, what all this rambling means, I can't work on carbs, pistons or parts until I have transport fixed. Sorry for extra delay

Been a week, truck is running better but far from perfect (well, it does have abouyt 107,000 on 2.3 engine)
Anyway, back to 'normal'
Been working on quite a few CB360 carbs last several weeks (months) haven't had an 'easy' set fort a long time, some sort of issue always comes up. Latest, some idiot used Hondabond (or 3-Bond?) to glue carbs together.
Making life very difficult, plus,it's a real PITA to get cleaned off all the 'gasket' surfaces
Just had to pry float bowl off, taking tops off may have damaged a diaphragm (it's broken so doesn't really matter how it happened)
Here's left carb gasket face

No idea about You Tube, I already know this stuff so don't watch bike 'How To' vids.
I have looked at a couple of Jeep transmission video's, didn't really tell me much though, mainly 'it's too complicated, take it to a specialist' BS and of course, the latest is O2 sensors ::)
 The majority of sites seemt o have people who 's idea of DIY is paying someone to do stuff while they watch.
I joined Pontiac Firebird forum, the ijits there though the Pontiac 389, 400, 454, etc. had 100% VE so I gave up pretty quick(it's closer to 60% on a good day at lowish rpm)

OMG

Just watched about half of first carb video. No wonder I'm getting so many messed up carbs if people are following it.

I guess I'm going to have to make a video to correct the misinformation. Most of what I saw wasn't too bad, except the primary and secondary main jets are backwards, the 'discharge nozzle' is needle jet and secondary discharge nozzle is really primary discharge.. I stopped when I saw how he was doing float levels, that's just wrong for so many reasons [/size]

LOL, I couldn't watch all of part 3 and ended up watching crazy Russian use self tapping screws to create 'race' tyres for ice racing. Worked really well  ;D 8)
I'll look it up again.
