That was easier than I figured!!! Dellorto planned ahead!!! The problem was I lost a screw on that lever…. And it wollored out!!! I figured I have to pull the throttle shaft to do this, which is why I have been putting it off…🤫🤫🤫 it was easy!!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Now my other carb is jealous of how clean this one is… So I better pull the other one too…😎😎😎

You can see the cracks on the outside where I think the bags were getting stretched and dry rot torn no bueno👎🏻 I need to order some fresh bags for the back… I put those 12” straps in yesterday.. I also noticed these front lower control arm bushings are ducking worn out!! Better order some of those too.. dang it.. 1 ton big block air bagged mother fucker is high maintenance and why it really doesn’t make for a better road tripper than my bus does!! And I can’t be rolling around with paint falling off the hood either!!
the rears are all new already! Thanks to Rob Rodine.
see the ends are missing on the bushings 👎🏻
