I am rebuilding my 69 TR6. The F@#$%^&*()(&^%^%ing thing wont start. It was starting perfectly but sucking air. I polished the flange made a new gasket and cleaned the carby and now it will not start at all. In cleaning the carby somehow I have completely blocked the pilot jet
I have watched Plewseys vid (thanks for posting mate, it's a brilliant resource
) on Amal care several times, on trying to blow air through my pilot jet, it is completely blocked. I can insert a guitar wire apparently through the jet from the side opening.
But the on trying to blow air through the jet from the fuel bowl side opening, as shown on the video, it is blocked, on sucking or blowing.
I have tried carby cleaner and compressed air through all the openings.
