|Wintergreen oil + Xylene mixed in a certain proportion |
can soften hardened rubber carb insulator boots.
|Leave them to soak overnight |
in the mix of 70% Xylene and 30% Wintergreen oil
|The result is clean and pliable insulator boots that are much easier to install.|
|They should pop right on with no fuss.|
|Getting the carbs mounted on them can still be a fist though. |
An easy fix it to wrap a ratchet strap around the carbs and front of motor.
Tighten down on the ratchet until the carbs pop into the boots and that's it.
|Button everything up and you're done. |
Soft boots can turn a day of struggles and headaches (and broken boots)
into about a 30 minute re-install, from start to finish.
