    Alright...getting ready to soke the parts of the q-jet. In the book I am borrowing from james it has apicture of what not to put in. It has the choke, but it's different than mine since mine is electric.

    My photo gallery is full, and I have to go back out...so I will probably just leave it out of the solvent. Just in case it can damage something.

    Is this solvent okay to use to soak all the parts:

    Here are the pics of the electric choke thing I'm talking about:

    Also, what are these parts for and where do they go? I am pretty sure the blue thing goes on a shaft in the elec. choke assembly...but what about the rest of these pieces?

    Well i used that solvent...filled up a bucket to put the pieces in... I don't know how much they used in the book to soak the entire thing...but I only got up to the top of the float bowl assembly with the solvent...so I probably will let it soak until thursday or friday...rotating which piece is in the solvent each day...since only 1 will fit it. Kind of makes me mad...used about 2.0-2.5L's of the solvent...which is a lot...hopefully it's not really expensive...I will reuse it though...

    I wouldn't recommend putting the choke housing in!

    At most just clean it with carb cleaner and a rag but don't soak it.

    I like chem-dip for carbs and such, nasty stuff you'll smell like it for days.
    I believe it is $15 a gallon here.

    Disolves plastic, eats paint, removes varnish, no scrubbing. just set it in and let it sit for a half hr or so. Realy nasty stuff may take all night.

    Only one in that picture that I can maybe identify is the round gasket (foam?) with the odd shaped cutout in it...that looks like a seal for the dual capacity solenoid. I've never dealt with one of those carbs, but thats I'd guess that to be for.

    Alright, I will look on the parts diagram to see if I can fit it into it's spot.
    Thanks...any idea what the white thing is for?

    I will look for that next time I am downtown...is it chem-dip made just for carbs? or is it a general thing?

    Thanks!

    The white thing is part of the hot air choke system. It's basically a seal that goes between the choke housing and the main body of the carb. Not sure if the electric setup retains this piece.

    I will look on my "new" one to see if it has the white piece...since it isn't electric.
    Thanks.
