Tooseevee - read it again?I don't understand it either, since I don't have a carb ( ), but when I read it, it tells me that you can temporarily hold the plastic baffle ring to the secure brass spacer using a bit of grease...
I don't understand what you're saying at all. The bowl doesn't hold the brass spacer on; the main jet holds the brass spacer on. The plastic baffle can fall off (mine did, found it in the bowl), but the brass spacer can't. The main jet in conjunction with the spacer also keeps the needle jet from rising if it's too loose in its tube (which isn't probable. It's a pretty tight fit).
You apparently missed this line in my post "put a SMALL dab of grease on the already installed brass spacer (jet already tightened) Notice "ALREADY INSTALLED BRASS SPACER" "(JET ALREADY TIGHTNED)". The dab of grease is to hold the plastic baffle only. The plastic baffle is suppose to be tight enough not to fall off the spacer, but some are not. The last line of my post is INCORRECT, I meant to say baffle not spacer. Sorry for not being more clear about it & a error in the last line. I'm going to go back & fix it now so I don't confuse anyone else, My Bad.
Aha! At least we have straightened out this whole hyuuuge problem Perhaps you & I should get together now & help straighten out the huge debacle these idiots have made out of the health care system & economy of this country There was a time a long while back that I considered J-BWelding the plastic baffle to the brass spacer. I decided it made more sense to throw it on the shelf with all the rest of the stuff I've taken off this bike.
Primarily it is intended to fall off a lot and lie in the bottom of the fuel bowl,--sounds familiar? This will increase blood pressure under normal circumstances and instill a panic known only to Titanic travelers.
I just re-read this thread...bwahahaha
