Wednesday March 18th on a cool but clear evening, John Webb and Bob Zimmerman hosted a tech session on carburetors
at the Mazda dealership on Waverley where John works. This event was well attended and by my count there were 28 AHCM and TDC
memmbers anxious to learn more about keeping their LBC's running smoothly. Bob started off by explaining the principle on which
SU, Stromberg and Weber carbs operate.
They both went on to explain and demonstrate what to look for when inspecting these carbs and how to repair
them. Some of the more important points covered were: throttle shafts, needles and jets, float bowl needles and seats, dash
pots and springs on SU's; and the diaphragms on Stromberg's. They sort of lost me when they started talking about Weber's.
After an hour or so we finished up with beer, discussion and socializing. Thanks again to John and Bob for hosting this
event and we look forward to the next one. As an aside, those new funny yellow licence plates allowed three owners of LBC's to
enjoy an outing in their cars!
