Title: Wanted: Intruder Carb
Post by: mswyka on July 30, 2021, 04:51:55 PM
Anyone have a spare Intruder Carb in decent shape?  Somehow I  managed to come up one carb short.

Rummaging around in our collection, as hard as it is to believe, I tripped over another pair of Intruder carbs.  They are in rough shape, but I am holding out hope that at least one of them can be rehabilitated.  For right now the slides and the enricheners are seized.

So I have been working on these carbs for about a month and there is no budging them.  PB Blaster, Heat, pressure.  Nothing is moving.  There is one other carb with a broken float arm post. I might be able to JB Weld the post back on.

I almost never say "never" but these carbs are just about the worst that I have ever seen.  The carbs came off a sled with only 157 miles on the odometer.  Nothing on the sled was worn, but everything was corroded.  The carbs no exception.  These are going in the scrap heap and I am going to look to see if there are some others in the collection that can be glued back together.
