that will probably work better than my "large capacity" setup lol


I do something similar when casting molds.  I attach the sander to the bottom of the table, and it pushes all the air bubbles to the top of the surface.  Spritz the bubble with a water/alcohol solution and no more bubbles.

Starting in on these finally tonight.


Be very careful you don't lose the o ring underneath the diaphragm cover. They run like poo without them.


You can ask me how I know if you like  ::) ....

I can guess!  ;)


So, the Ebay seller of the hydrosonic cleaner cancelled my order 4 hours after I put it in.  Said they didn't have them in stock and refunded my money.   The next day they posted the same ones for 50$ more with "over 50 in stock".  I'm gonna leave a steaming pile of dung on their feedback.

So...I found another one and have it on the way.

That's lame. I hope that in a year they still have those 50 left in stock.

Right?   I understand selling for market value but what they did was deceitful.

That shit has happened to me twice in the last few months. GP style exhaust bought for $10 and an alloy front fender bought for under $10. Both times I was given some shitty excuse and a refund. Both times the item was relisted with a reserve and a high Buy It Now.

Just curious, did you contact the sellers?    I've considered it but figured it would be a waste of time.

Question.  While testing only, do I have to run a fuel pump to the carbs even if I have a good gravity feed ?

This is my first go around with pressurized fuel systems.
