Wish I could have kept mine.....



I STILL have the sound of wringing the engine out to redline, ever so suhweeeeeet!!

btw, those carbs are not the "lifting diaphragm" type as suggested by several posts above: simply cracking the throttle lifts the round slides and allows in plenty of air for compression testing.... one CAN over-analyze all this stuff! Take care of slingers, ride her and enjoy the sweet harmonies of low compression engine, shaft drive and a genteel twin exhaust... 'tis mesmerizing!
