"1967 Triumph 650cc TR6R Carburetor prolems"


          

My father and I began work on a TR6 recently and everything was coming out perfect. The only problem we've come across was with the orginal Amal carburetor. When we tighten down the Main jet assembly, the force it puts on the Jet block moves it slightly in the body, just enough that it is causing the throttle slide to bind. Has anyone come across this problem, and if so, any advice.

Oh yeah, it took a half dozen tries to tighten the block in place correctly. Be sure the Jet Block Locating peg (if equipped) is properly seated. It should be a slot head screw next to the pilot mixture screw. If the peg is missing, worn, or broken, it might be wiser to hunt up another carb. A worn AMAL will never hold tune. Pat
