Float Post Repair Kit - GL1000
One of the worst things that can happen during a carb rebuild is a broken float pivot post. Our kit offers a precise and permanant solution to repair the pivot posts.
Over the years, Randakk's has evaluated many repair techniques for this calamity...none has ever completely satisfied. Up until now, the only good advice that could be offered was to replace the entire carb body.
- Honda GL 1000 - all years
- Honda Civic SB1 - RS automobiles with dual GL1000 type CV carbs (carb code 743A)
This Kit is easy to use and requires minimal expertise or tools. It delivers a reliable, accurate and permanent repair! The cost is considerably less than most suppliers charge for a single, bare and inspected carb body. Plus, given the cost of labor and the value of a complete carb rack, most suppliers are getting reluctant to part with a single carb body.
Each kit will repair one broken float pivot post. Once you've purchased the kit, you can repair more carb bodies by purchasing additional replacement posts below.
Each repair kit contains the following parts:
- 1 - replacement post
- 1 - post locating jig
- 2 - specially sized twist drills
- 1 - self-tapping screw
- 1 - drill depth gauge (plastic tube)
- 1 - special saw blade
- miscellaneous items unique to each kit
- 6-inch fine file
- small electric drill with small chuck for 1/16 twist drill (or drill press)
- Phillips screwdriver
- Epoxy glue
- The supplied replacement post is a long post. It is engineered to replace either the short or long OEM post.
Detailed Installation Instructions
Installation instructions are provided via a non-published website page to each buyer. Instructions are 8 pages with 12 color photos. No printed instructions will be sent with the product.
Here is an excerpt from the install instructions::
"Install drill locator jig. It works for either broken post and is engineered so that it can only be installed in the "correct" orientation. The jig is attached using the original float bowl screws, with the provided flat washers under the lock washers on the screws. The purpose of the flat washers is to prevent the ends of the lock washers from getting into the slots and possibly shifting the jig out of position. When tightening the screws, be sure to push the jig so the flat side of the notch bears against the good post. This ensures proper location of the new hole."
