I'm looking to clean/rebuild the stock CV's on my '02 TBird.
I'm having a problem locating a quality seal kit. Bike Bandit has the cheap ones which are poorly rated. JP cannot guarantee a proper fit on the more expensive "James" kit...but I know this can't be a hard-to-find item. I've spent some time on the threads but cannot find any specifics.
These carbs have probably never been removed as it's a low miler, so I want to give it some love. Some have said it's not necessary to renew all of the seals, but in my experience with small block Chevy's, it's a no brainer. I've always replaced them all when the carb comes apart.
The bike ran very nice on my only ride late last year, so I'm not wanting to re-jet or tinker with the setup, just clean, calibrate, and install new seals.
Any information of vendors or part numbers would be helpful.
