Bill, thanks for the reply.  Yesterday I discovered where they go and am almost embarrassed to say where but I should end the mystery for those who may be wondering.  They are the springs that go on the back side of the Bypass Valve diaphragms.  I’d forgotten to install them when I’d broken down and overhauled the carbs 20 months ago.  No wonder I couldn’t get the carbs to run right.


Nobody wins the kewpie doll.

Gary, while I  have no idea how they would get anywhere near the carbs (unless dropped there by accident), those springs look very much like those which are on the backside of the wheel center decoration pieces on the TR6 that the wheel nuts go through (black ones on the early 6's, and silver on the later ones).  BTW, those springs also fit the back of the wheel covers on TR7's with steel wheels.
