      Kits are made by Mallory, Sierra, GLM and OEM. Strip her down, blow out every passage with some gumout jet spray and be sure to replace all gaskets, floats and inlet needles and seats with new parts.

      Some of those carbs have a copper gasket under the inlet needle, some don't make note of what you have.
