Project Café: 1973 Honda CB500 - Part 3

Rebuilding the carburetors

Now it’s time to check the float height. This is done by turning the carb body over and seeing how high the float sits when at a gentle rest against the needle. Correct float height for these carbs is 22mm. We used a set of measuring calipers to make a mark 22mm from the edge of this wood block, then set it against the carb body to check that they match.
