I would guess that the ball drops into the hole inside the pump chamber and the little tin piece is supposed to be placed on top and swedged under tabs cast into the body to keep the ball from coming out.

OK I thought you just had the pointed check valve. The ball drops in the hole first, and the square piece drops in after it (It acts as a weight on the check ball to seal the hole so the accelerator pump will not suck air). They are just dropped in to the hole.

The piece you removed from the front of the carb with 1 screw that has 2 nozzels that point into the front carb bores is where it goes. When this piece (the accelerator nozzel assembly is in place and screwed down it is what keeps the ball and weight in place.

Pretty Sure I Got It Now

thanks again for your quick responses i figured thats where they had to go so i dropped em in and was hoping you would say that was the right way. I was so carefull taking it apart but they must have been stuck and then freed during the jiggle upside down lets just hope it goes back together ok.
thanks again.

and I thought he was referring to the ball under the pump, not under the nozzle.
