Just back from the sprawling windy metropolis of Inversneckie. Took the VHBZ carb with the stripped float bowl bolt socket into the guys at Precision Engineering. Pop back in a hour or so - we will see what we can do Mr Morrison said, also If it breaks the outer alloy then it’s at your risk but we won’t charge - go for it says I.
Â£20 for a beautiful repair using a helical type insert sleeve doohinky. There had been a crude attempt at a bodge with araldite / belzona / plastic metal or sumfink - history!
Worth the risk? Of course - dealing with craftsmen patently. Oh, and the machinists wanted to have a look at the mad farquhar who actually likes Guzzis.
