Carb Diapragm kit for the Vire 6&7 tillotson carburettor (usually 286/260 models).

    The picture carburettor is not included.

Upper gasket - (sits between throttle body and fuel-level-diapragm - restoring correct fuel level)

Rubber fuel-level-diapragm (old ones harden - increasing flooding/surging of power)

Pump-valves AND pump-diaphragm sheet (old valves twist and dont seal properly taking longer to start a dry engine and allowing leak-back)

-NOTE THIS ONE PART ABOVE, REPLACES TWO SEPARATE PARTS YOU MIGHT HAVE

Bottom filter cork gasket (old ones may not reseal ofter cleaning filter mesh)

Carb-cylinder gasket (old ones may leak neat air bypassing carb and wekening mixture/rough running)

This kit does include needle/seat, and welch plug parts for idle jet back cavity but use are tricky to fit.

If you have had a lot of corrosion from salt inside the carb (black or crystaline deposits), this kit may not be as wise as a replacement exchange carb - see my other items.

Restores diapragm flexibility and gasket suppleness.

Fault Finding - Fueling

In my experience, unless you know your carb is less than 10 years old, then even after professionally fitted kit is done, 50% of these carbs, will not tune and function perfectly, 50% will, this is i believe because the carbs upper air tubes (no access) have corroded internally in salt air, or the carb has been drilled/modified.

My advice is, check you have 3 idle jets working, then fit a new diapram, (see my other items), if you have petrol leaking or fuel delivery problems, then this kit will probably sort that, but if youve already got 3 good idle jets, cleaned your carb and a new diapram, without it leaking and gravity fuel supply, this kit is a waste of money, just do the right thing and replace carb if its more than 10 years old, usually a brilliant easy solution.
