Started the carb rebuild tonight and already have run into two issues. Never done one before.

1.) How do you get the accelerator cable disconnected? Do you have to disconnect it at the grip? Seems like is should come out of the carb slide but it does not fit through the opening.

2.) I can't get the float pin out. Is there a trick or I just a better pair of small pliers with teeth? The manual says just slip it out but it is not sliding anywhere.

20 have read the post but no one has an answer?

On page 320 of the Clymer manual it says " Compress the slide spring to obtain as much throttle cable slack as possible. Disengage the cable end from the slide valve." Sounds easy huh? Even when I can momentarily compress the spring, the cable will not slide through the opening it passes through.. Help! What is the trick to doing this???

I know someone out there that has rebuilt a Dellorto carb from a R90S.

First, pull the spring up,

First, pull the spring up, out of the slide, so that you can dislodge the cable retainer plate. Prior to removing the plate, note its orientation. That detail will make things much easier to re-assemble. Next hold the cable housing in place in the adjuster and fully compress the spring, this should allow the cable to drop down out of it's anchor hole in the slide and you will be able to move the cable to the side so that the cable will move through the slot between the anchor hole and the adjacent, larger, hole.

Float pins can go either way

Float pins can go either way SOMETIMES. You may need a small tappet wrench ( hammer). Some have a knurl on one end and you need to go out the opposite way. Look close at both the ends of the pin.

Also Hucky has 2 New Dellorts 38mm R90S carbs on sale for $900 pair (was $1419). For information only. Not saying U need um just saying he has um.

There is a clip holding the slide and cable together.

And it was very easy to pull the pin out as soon as you identify the correct side.

Is this a

opted for new carbs

On my carbs the pin can only come out one way. After looking at the overall condition of the carb I opted for a shiny new pair from Moto-bins - $490 for both. And I was able to figure out how to get the cable out.
