    Rebuilding carbs need advice

    I,m rebuilding my carbs and can,t figure out how to get the check valve grommets installed. I am using a 2mm round head Allen wrench but can't get them installed. I try to take it easy but eventually I end up poking through the grommet without ever getting it installed. Need some advice before I run out of grommets.

    Use a little bit two troke oil and as your pushing in make a circular motion with whatever tool your trying to use, be patient and they will go

    So these things were a real PITA but finally got them in. None of the tips I found by goggling worked so I figured out my own way. I put the valve in place then took the grommet and put it in the hole at an angle so one side was in the hole. I then took a small screwdriver and Went aroundvthe rest of the grommet tucking the edge into the hole. I then pushed the grommet through with my finger. This worked well for both grommets.
