Maintenance and Modifications / Re: Brake bleeding issues
« Last post by jeff10049 on Today at 12:31:21 AM »
what size bore in the master same as the old one?  Mini drums can really kick your ass on adjustment tighten the adjusters until they stop then bleed it one more time if the pedal is good. Then back off the adjusters evenly until it has light drag.

If the pedal is soft with the adjusters cranked up tight either still have air or a bad master is all can think of.

To fix this would I need to bend the rear float down to account for the lower fuel level?
Or is the only option to have the carb perfectly level?

If the rear chamber is the primary side of the carb, that will definitely be an issue, there is not enough fuel in there to keep it running from the look of it.

Thank you, I reached out to him.
Is the uneven fuel level going to be an issue?

MiniDave,

It was a pleasure meeting you, putting a face to a name, and chatting with you, and the other RM members during the event. Nice job documenting the activities. Safe travels back to KC.

Kind of reviving the thought of a second Mini.

Any of the Oklahoma guys know this one?

Drained the tank and put new gas in.

Pulled off the top to look at the floats. Looking inside the weber you can see the different levels of gas inside the two chambers due to the angle of the carb.
Do I need to adjust the floats to account for this?
