Needle plastic washer

Recommended Posts

Just took apart the carb on my new/used bike. The plastic washer from under the clip on the needle is missing. The fische doesn't give dimensions of the washer and the bike shop doesn't have it in stock. Anyone got their carb apart or know the thickness of this washer so I can match it?

Mike do you still need an answer on this?  If so, I could go pull a carb apart.

Not sure how accurate my caliper is...

readings i got:

inch 0.0875 to 0.0885

mm 2.22 to 2.25

 

Good luck.

that is it thx guys, I found a close up pic of the part on a needle and estimated its thickness. I put a half thickness washer I had and moved the clip down one more than recommended for starters. It is working well, but next time I pull it off I will get it right. Thx again.
