    stripped high speed t-handle

    Guy who originally rebuild and rejetted the carbs about a 2 years ago stripped out one of the high speed screw holes while drilling out the tamper proof cap. He repaired it with some type of epoxy - not real sure. We have had to rebuild and clean carbs from some water damage. Now the high speed screw just spins - threads are stripped inside the carb. Is there anyway we can repair? Carbs look good other than this.

    On mine it was not completely stripped. So i was able to assemble it with RTV and set it. You can try epoxy and put some mold release on the screw to rebuild the threads.

    Looks like it is totally stripped no threads left at all - I don't think we can fix - So, what are our options? replace that carb? It is the one with the fuel pump on it - but we have disabled it - can it be replaced with any carb or does it have to be that one? What are my chances of finding a used single carb? Are there any other alternatives? Thanks

    Get with Art at Jetworks. He does a lot of carb work and may have some parts laying around
