    I used a round, wire type gauge. A thin flat gauge will also conform easily just like paper but being metal, it'll give a better feel for drag. But again, any method works as long as you use common sense.

    On the POR-15.... I have used it for over 20 years, great stuff... wear gloves! this the label says "The only thing that takes it off your skin is time"! Well that is not totally true, a good scrubbing with 80 grit does the job too, and it leaves the skin nice and pink! the way POR-15 works is water is the catalyst, it pulls it out of the air to cure. (or your skin) (ask me how I know) about 15 years ago we used the Non-UV rated POR-15 on a friends steel butterfly chair for out in his yard... about 5 years ago it started flaking off around the joints from rust starting where the POR-15 did not get... it got dull almost a year and a half sitting in the sun. Inside the tank it should not get much sunlight!

    :hello: Rick: My good friend in Hastings PA restores old Kaw 2 stroke triples & 4 cyn. I've been sending him pics of your carb rebuilds. He may contact you in the near future. His name is Matt Chernisky. He asked me what you charge. I told him the more work you send him the better the deal. I did not quote him a price.

    UPDATE to all you Rick fans out there. I got my carbs back from Rick last week opened the box and my jaw hit the floor. Those are Cleanest looking carbs I have ever seen in my life! If it run half as good as they look that is going to be a beast on the road! Thanks again Rick, You Rock!
