    I can't quite make out what that is, other than it shouldn't be there.

        Makes a change from grit blasting sand caught in the flame traps of reconditioned cam covers or the factory fitted casting sand in all parts of the engine, but about as useful!

              Looks like glass beads to me. Its what I use in my blasting cabinet to clean delicate alloy castings. Looks like the carb has been cleaned up by blasting whilst fully assembled. The glass beads will find their way in everywhere and the carb needs to be fully stripped down and blasted through with compressed air to get rid of all of the blasting media. I know as I have done this to quite a few carbs (various types, not just Stombergs) and am always amazed at where the beads end up. Never had an issue with any of the carbs I have done.

              Quite surprising that it was supplied to you like that. I seem to recall DJT had the same issue. Might be worth letting the supplier know so they can improve their service.

                    Mine had dust in the air valve (piston) area causing them to stick up and the engine to stall. A couple of cleans and they have been fine since, but do agree that this shouldn’t be happening.

                        I am really unsure quite what "offence" was being caused on this thread? Could someone enlighten me?

                            The way this forum is being led makes no sense to me, Shame as there are some cracking people on here.
                            Plus as i have stated before this problem will not go away.

                              not me, maybe a slight misunderstanding of a thread that started in club business.
