Decided to start cleaning up the flywheel/fan and it's coming on nicely. In the process I noticed two rather curious timing marks.

Can anyone confirm if the Solex crab should have a gasket between float bowl any body? Mine doesn't, but the mating surfaces look to rough to form an seal

Solex carbs are normally gasket free, however the faces tend to warp so facing them off by whatever means available to you usually helps the situation. Ideally the fuel level shouldn't be that high, an extra washer under the needle valve assembly to lower the float level helps.
