MC 2100 Rebuild

Got my carb kit and float in the mail today. Going to rebuild the MC 2100 this weekend. I'll post pics, if I don't screw it up. Hell, I'll post pics even if I do.

I've read through the various threads here, but thought I'd put this out there.

I'm a carb rebuild virgin. Any advice or tips/tricks you have that would save me a headache later?

I'm going to pick up some carb cleaner and a new fuel filter before I start. Anything else I might need or should do so I don't light myself on fire?

Thanks!

Take your time.

Get a nice clean table/bench to work on.

Get a few small containers to put small parts in (cups/lids/empty bottles).

Have 4 cans of carb cleaner, make sure every hole/passage flows freely.

Wear some safety glasses while doing this (take it from me )

Clean it more than you should, especially the venturi cluster.

Make sure you put the rubber/orange umbrella in the right hole (in accel pump).

Make sure you put the accel pump spring in right (small end pointing out).

Make sure you have a new phenolic spacer (the thick gasket at the bottom).

Put it all back together and tune it per instructions from other mc2100 articles here on JF.

It's a snap!

Just want to re-enforce wearing the safety glasses. Last July, My eye surgery was horrible, and then a long recovery. I needed in a big part because of carb cleaner that came right back in my eye. You can count on it.

If you didn't get it the first time.......... WEAR SAFETY GLASSES !!!!!!

Don't worry. The glasses go right on my list. I'm glad they were mentioned, because I didn't even think about that.

i'll give you my 2 cents. get a gallon of the carb cleaner with a basket. berryman's i think is one brand. you want to soak the parts that are all metal only, no plastic or rubber. also, take it apart real slow and pay attention to where parts came from. maybe some photo's as you go. really easy though, you'll feel good when it's done. good luck . also, you want compressed air to blow out the parts.

The MC2100 carb kit comes with more parts than you need, and for various sub models of this carb. Make sure that the throttle plates move freely and close like they should. If you happen to have an automatic choke assembly on it and you intend to use it, make sure all of that stuff is clean and not binding up. If you are going manual, leave the body on the carb but I would recommend taking the internal linkage out. Make sure you have all vacuum ports blocked off that you aren't going to need or use. If you troll for problems with this carb on JF you will find that most are going to be vaccuum related. The previous replies on this post really sum it up well....Great conversion, you will love it!

Don't mean to hijack but do rebuild instructions come with the rebuild kit....or is their a writeup on here? (Didn't find anything on search) and Google brings up too much crap. I have nover done it before and dont want to have to buy a reubuilt one or a Weber.

Thanks, and again sorry for the hijack
