Randakk makes a post repair kit, too. Follow his advice and use only Honda float valves and seats. I lucked out and found a lightly used set for mine on eBay. It's the only way to get the inlet screens if they are missing as all of mine were.

Thank you very muc sir! I just got his master overhaul kit. I repaired Post in the past on single carb so I did a repair on this one I was just hoping to get a cool replacement. Drill ed hole in post screwed in little screw, threaded the body and gasproof jbweld stuff just for extra. Will be ordering a kit just in case though LOL I did follow his advice and used a OEM Honda new one I had one needle seat that got bad and corroded somehow. Love your biuld by the way looks fantastic I'm slowly getting closer to mine LOL I am only at the engine stage so far.

Hey, that's looking great! I did my carbs five years ago when I first bought her. Tried the Keyster kits but ended up stripping them out for Randakk's o-rings and lurking eBay for the float valves. I did my leak testing with isopropyl alcohol and a Mighty Vac. This was because our garage is in the basement and my wife is sensitive to gas fumes. Glad I did, because they came apart several times to correct things.

Use the 91% or better. If any is left, it will mix and burn. One of my favorite solvents - but it IS flammable! Doesn't burn your hands, though (even if you get it under a ring). Of course, carb cleaner is a necessary evil for cleaning them.
