Mine has clip style #14b and retainer style #15b. These are 64-3 carbs. Could the problem be that parts #2, #3, and #10 are worn? Or would it be #13 that is to blame? I have spoken to Bing and they say mail them in and we'll figure it out.
sounds like a lot of money to me. FYI, the bike has about 140,000 miles on it now.
mm .. I've rebuilt upwards of 20 such carbs in the last 5 years and can't see how that could happen. Are you sure you have the correct parts? Is there dirt in part 15b that pushes the clip down and out of 14b? Don't tighten 15b too mcuh. Seated plus a very minor bit of pressure is enough. Are the dimples in the carb rubbers lined up with the carb correctly?
