Re: Just for the record, I'm ticked off...

This is my screwdriver. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My screwdriver is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My screwdriver, without me, is useless. Without my screwdriver, I am useless.

Those carbs were risen from the titanic, buried in the desert, then put on a bike right?

Hanging the broken screwdriver on the wall to overlook your new one doing the work it used to do is just cruel and unusual punishment. Inanimate objects have quite a lot of feelings as well...

Re: Just for the record, I'm ticked off...

Where it broke you can cut the other side off and make a standard, or shave it flush and have a #4 for large screws, or sharpen it to a point and make an ice pick/prison shank.
Use your imagination, even a broken tool is a useful one in some way or another after some refinement.

CCM: Done, drill sergeant!

Drill Sergeant: [off screen] CCM! [Hurrying over] Why did you put that Carburetor together so quickly, CCM!?

CCM: You told me to, drill sergeant.

Drill Sergeant: [Looks at a stopwatch he is holding] Jesus H. Christ! This is a new company record. If it wouldn't be a waste of such a damn fine enlisted man, I'd recommend you for GDC mod status, Private CCM! You are gonna be a general someday, CCM! Now, disassemble your Next Carb and continue!

If we learned anything from Frankenstein and his creation we only use what parts are already there, we do not add any more!

Re: Just for the record, I'm ticked off...

Yup, so I call some old friends (since I just moved back here in April but had lived here many years ago), got the snapon guys phone number, called him... It is the same guy. He remembered me and the guys at the dealership, remembered making this screwdriver for me (custom handle). Twenty some years later, and ordered me another free.
Still mad at your carbs, you know who you are..

I found a pair locating that float that would probably break your ultrasonic cleaner and your pride.

Looks like you can eat off them now. The owner should be very happy with them, you know who you are....

You know..... And besides, notice how the pilot fuel screws are still capped off on both sets, when was the last time you saw a set that wasn't drilled off and the screws exposed? Same on both sets... Because it's the same set.
