Just wondering if there is a thread detailing how to rebuild a Carter AFB?
I bought 2x 1409s to replace the AFBs on the 36' but since its a fishing machine the floors are lower than normal and I had issues with clearance. With the ABFs, the spark arrestors actually touched the sound proofing under the floors leaving a slight impression in them. When installing the 1409s I had to add spacers to allow clearance for the throttle linkage and now don't have the proper room for spark arrestors so am reverting back to the Carters. They were rebuilt when I first acquired "Giggity" about 6 years ago, I would like to go through them to ensure they are good to go.
Just unscrew them as you did above and clean? Any other tips?
