Re: weirdest stuff found in your motor
I'm bumping this old thread cause I found something weird today.
I have a new NT carburetor that I polished and a new manifold I was going to install. When I looked down the throat of the manifold prior to grinding and polishing the inside I found a hunk of metal, probably from when the tubing was cut and was left in after the parts were welded at the factory.
I was able to just wiggle it and it broke off. No big deal because I always clean and smooth the intake runner prior to installing it but imagine a newbie sticking this thing on an engine and it breaking off and getting sucked in. Could have done some serious damage.
