FCR carb issue - broke a part off in the float bowl


Recommended Posts

I was unscrewing my pilot jet on a FCR carb tonight and a part of the "tower" that the pilot jet screws down into broke off. It affects the milk white plastic part that

is held on by the main jet holder.

 

So, I have a question. Does that white plastic part do much? Can I simply remove it? I think some folks do just that...

That's just a baffle to keep the jet from sucking up air when the fuel's splashing around in the bowl. 

 

Does it do anything?  Kinda.  It's a minor component in the carb itself, but ... honestly, if there's enough material there to keep it in place and not break any more, I'd just leave it.

 

And be more careful next time. :prof:
