    It is best that the teflon (or other material) is lathe-cut while installed upon the carrier bearing to make certain it closes "true".
    And the seat in the airvalve horn should be piloted and cut clean to the same angle.

    If you have a lathe handy, I have thirty pounds or so of PEEK scraps I sell at $.25 a gram...
    (I looked like a drug dealer weighing it out at Davenport: baggies, postal scale and all....)

    PS: This 'Timeless' reproduction carb isn't sold as a bolt-on-and-go item? Or is it a kit?
    Love to see a pic!

    There not sold other than on a complete bike or complete motor, its just the way it is. Not a seperate parts dealer but more or less if your a purchaser of a timeless bike you can get parts if needed. You could always try calling Mike at Timeless and ask though. I was going to mention that the 2oz spring rate was in the " running position" not the air valves middle setting if that makes sense. Wish i had more to add but im still just learning as i go here

    I'm not in the market, I assure you.
    But if you want any careful advice, I would at least need to know what it looks like.

    Maybe just a link to the "Timeless", Flyin.mauer?

    Might be easiest...

    Pretty much yes, there is spuratic tidbits of info spread throughout the forum all mixed in with different search words related to 1910 harley, j model, belt drive single etc, but since eople are using these parts its all part of the scene

    Their frames are a horrible copy of the original. Also Aluminum tanks and toolbox. Garbage carbs. Spot them 50 feet away, but very affordable and fun for the $6k I paid for mine. I do ride my original 1910, but sparingly.

    Hey there, well i knew id be masking a set of aluminium tanks and tool box, figured il make the carb work with tinkering and some tricks on the air valve etc, i wouldnt know the difference on the frame cause ive never seen a real one long enough to pick the variance between original or not. Some pictures of these things would be cool on here though
