    I'd highly suggest buying a Bing book. I knew nothing about Bings not long ago and with book ( and this forum) I've come to love Bings. Easy to rebuild and easy to maintain once you learn how ( and you are going to school now it seems :1drink)

    Dang, I sent you a PM. I might have a carb that would work for you if you need it. The previous owner of mine converted to Mikuni's so I have the original Bing sitting on a shelf.

    These carbs are pretty common and relatively cheap. I see them all the time.

    I may even have one that will work for you - I know I've got a set with one that's trashed.

    That said, what's worked for me in removing stuck carb parts is heat/cooling cycles and aluminum cleaner. It can take a while for the chemical to reach deep enough to free up the jet, but it will eventually. I used to use a ZEP product - but can't get it any more. So now I've been using Eagle 1 Mag Wheel Cleaner (not the one safe for clear coated wheels). It's not quite as strong as the industrial strength ZEP stuff, but works almost as well.

    I haven't tried the aluminum cleaner, thanks for the tip. It soaked for days in everything else I tried. In the meantime a forum member has offered a spare that is the side/series number I need, that should at least get me back to the point that I can troubleshoot the original problem. Thanks for all the help/advice.
