    Rebuilt it on my own first time,and it run a bit better... more power. When I opened the top there was a small bb under the accelorator pump spring, but none in the bowl where the brass mesh filter goes. Will it run any better if I put one in? If need be I can show pics of what I'm talking about, as I have a nother 2v that is built just like the one on my car:idea2:

    That's the problem its not. Aparently they used the same walker kit that I did, but the screen that goes in that spot had big holes in it. I ended up using the screen from the 2v that I got from a 2v I got from a friend. The carb wasn't rebuilt to its best. I replaced all gaskets, the screen, small bb that goes under accelorator pump spring, took out the jets and poured the best cleaner ...b-12 into the bowl and into where the jets go so it would free up the crud that resided there. Now the carb runs a heck of a lot better than before. I thought I had the engine runnin smooth before... man I its smooth like its not even on now. So I guess I did it right.:TU:

    That hole with the arrow in the picture is the inlet for the accelerator pump. No check-ball goes in that hole.

    The accelerator pump well (the one with the big spring in your picture) has a similar hole in the bottom. That hole should have a check-ball. The big-spring keeps the check-ball in place (as well as providing the pump return). The check-ball allows fuel to be sucked into the well, and prevents fuel from being pushed back into the float bowl during pump discharge.

    The only other check-ball is located under the venturi cluster. This thread should help:

    Thanks:TU: I did refer to the thread you spoke of. I'm thinking of tinkering with the jets to see if i can get it to run a little more rich. what would the next two sizes up be?
