Hello guys have a question on a carb that I have for another project here. I bought a proform 650 street series carburetor vacuum secondary for my truck which is not the same one I have the mysterious miss with on another forum post. This is my 86 s10 not my 96 s10. The carburetor does not have a secondary metering block but a holley style metering plate but its tapped for jets. The problem I am having is the carb was on my truck for only a short time and had to take it off. Here is a l link of what is in my carb but its made by quic fuel but it is the same thing just with a different name on it. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/QFT-34-2/
After taking off my rear bowl I saw a lot of purple flakes clogging up my jets. The stupid anodized plating is chipping off at the corners and I don't want this stupid crap to clog up my carburetor fuel passages and don't want to keep taking it off to clean it. So question is can I do something to take the rest of the loose plating off without damaging the metering plate? I tried to use a secondary metering block I had handy but the locater tabs don't work on the proform carb main body. Hope someone can give advice.
