So I pulled my carb off to have a fella "go thru" it. I haven't run in a couple of years and want to do a little shake down in the garage before I head to the track.
I just pulled the carb and gave it to the guy. He called a few days later and said it was done but I may have a problem. There was a screw in the base plate missing.
I pulled the heads and checked them out very close, no signs of the screw "screwing" them up, the pistons are fine, and the cylinder walls are perfectly OK.
Either the screw didn't go down the hole, or it just passed right thru like bubble gum thru a goose. Man do I feel lucky!
