Re: Motorized black mamba roadster project in Kenya
I think I fixed the carburetor. I took all the bad quality side pieces off that are supposed to clamp the manifold, then made it level with a file. Next I took a piece of tubing that fits the opening of the carburetor and cut just one side opening (instead of the 4 on the stock one).
I welded some clamps that clamp around the side of the carburetor and all seems to be working well.
With this system I definitely do need a gasket though between carburetor and manifold. What kind of material is best to use as a gasket between manifold and carburetor? According to my measurement it should be a ring of 18mm diameter. Hopefully I'll be able to find something in Kenya.
Haven't thought of a solution for the engine being too wide...
