Carburetor Restoration

This is a carburettor from our own project bike a Suzuki T 250 1972 we purchase to restore and show in our factory.

In this particular case, we stripped the carburettors to refinish the bodies by vapour blasting and re-zinc the fittings. In the process we found the flanges to be distorted and re-machined them flat again.
