    Acquired a brushless Milwaukee rattle gun as well from the tip. Had to open it out as it did not work. Rattle mechanism was jammed. Had probably dropped onto concrete floor from a height.
    Works now.

    Acquired a box of baby food from the tip. All in date and sealed. I thought perfect food for my hillwalks. Found the taste rather bland requiring salt and spices which I did not bring with me but I did eat all the wee jars, 12 of them on a three day venture to Knoydart.

    You should have left the Iphone there. Do you hide it and use Bluetooth in case anyone you know sees you with it?

    Got my Ming stool from the tip. Timing is of particularly great importance when acquiring these.

    Walbro has a good video well worth watching. Iíll post link later.
    Cheers TK. The metering lever height - is that something that is frequently found to be in need of adjustment? What causes them to go out of spec? Where can the tool be bought. Not sure all the carbs I have are Walbros. Some have plate butterflys, others a barrel for the throttle valve.

    PITA but APOP with the correct 'Pacman' tool. Essential.

    If the pop-off and re-seat pressures are found to be correct, that does imply the height of the inlet needle valve is correct also?
