Remove the air cleaner stud to prevent damage to your packaging or the carburetor.
You may or may not need to remove the idle solenoid, depending on the model of your carburetor.
Disconnect fuel and vacuum lines at carburetor. Doc recommends taking a picture of return springs, linkages, cables, vacuum lines and other parts you disconnect before removing your carburetor. He also suggests you label the parts in the picture.
Drain all fuel out of the carburetor. If any fuel is present, the shipper will not ship.
Place the carburetor in a zip lock bag or equivalent type of packaging that seals tightly to avoid detecting the smell of gas. Carburetors that have sat for a long time will retain an odor after the fuel has been drained. A tight sealing bag is crucial for shipping.
Ship your carburetor in a box that will protect your carburetor during shipment. We recommend using bubble wrap or paper to secure your carburetor. Do not use packing peanuts. These peanuts are not good for your carburetor and will not protect your carburetor during shipping. We are not responsible for any damage caused during the shipping of the carburetor to us. Tracking number and insurance for shipping are a good investment to make.
Complete our packing form with all your contact information and any additional information Doc should know about your fuel delivery system.
Always call our practice if you have any questions about what you need to remove from your carburetor or shipping instructions.
