    Had to replace the adjustment screw and tube fitted to the top of the carby today.
    Ok it's not rocket science (and at risk of being labelled trivial) but I thought of this when I had to remove the throttle cable from the slide.
    In the past whenever I had to do this, I would bunch up the spring with one hand against the Carb top in order to push the cable end out.(Always a Pleasure)
    Today my flash of brilliance (relatively speaking) was to use two Twist Ties to keep the spring compressed which allowed me to concentrate soley on removing and subsequent refitting the cable itself.
    As I said, not earth shattering stuff but it may help someone out there.
    Happy Cabling!

    cool tip!an easy way to remove jet needle is to use a hemostat on the throttle cable , lift the spring slightly, slide the hemostat under it and lift.. clamp it on
