Ibm not sure what the issue is. I wouldnbt expect 40+ year old carbs to
come back looking new when brebuiltb. They werenbt bremanufacturedb.
I think they look fine.

Ibve taken the bells and placed them in a tumbler I have that uses corn cob
media, and let them run for a few hoursb& they end up looking prettier
without looking polished like some sort of street tuner junk.

Do they work well?

Charlie Shelden was kind enough to host these photos
Look at the screws for the bells and the bells themselves
All comments appreciated
