Tonight I took the Rochester apart with my dad. Don't have time to clean it, but will probably do that tomorrow before my mom gets home; she hates me using carb cleaner and stuff in the driveway- "gets in the water system and kills you," and she's probably right; it sure dries any plants that it hits. Hopefully I will get to order a gasket set for the engine tomorrow, as that will be my next mini-project.
note the mineral deposit visible in pic 3- that thing was loaded up with dirt and junk
In sadder news, my uncle died on saturday night, taking a nap after dinner.
