All O-rings Are Not The Same!

 

The round o-rings in each Master Kit are made of Viton rather than ordinary nitrile (Buna-N) as found in other aftermarket carb kits. One good case of severe engine overheating can ruin the carb o-rings found in ordinary kits? Randakk’s o-rings are the best available!

VitonOring

Viton is superior to nitrile in terms of:

  • Heat tolerance (400 degrees F vs. 250 degrees F)
  • Compression set
  • Permeation

We even include rebuild kits for the air cut-off valves and accelerator pump as required for each application.

Recommendation

 

You will need access to good reference material for a successful rebuild, such as the official Honda Factory Workshop Manual.

There is some critical information there on rejoining and aligning the carb bodies to prevent binding of the throttle and choke shafts…very important!

 

 

 


 

 

 

Quick Notes:

 

No jets or jet needles are supplied with our kits. These can normally be cleaned and reused. “Dress” the jet tower cavities with crocus cloth or similar to remove oxidation and burrs, then use a lubricant like Vaseline to insert the main jets.

No float valve/seat assemblies in our kit.

No fuel filter is included. But it would be a crime to redo your carbs and not take prudent measures to ensure a pure fuel supply!

Mike Nixon recommends a critical inspection that requires removal of the choke butterfly screws. The staked OEM choke butterfly screws are very difficult to re-use. You will need to use some medium strength Lock-Tite to secure our replacement screws.

 

Considerable skill is required to install this high-quality kit correctly. Since Randakk’s cannot control this important variable, there is no warranty on these. Rest assured that they are of the highest quality materials and workmanship. Each kit has been carefully packed and inspected to ensure that all items are included.
