  • I can't put a finger on it when it comes to carb rebuilds. There are tons of rebuild videos to watch and what makes one more watchable than the other is a mystery. Your videos seem to keep me interested. Maybe its the tone or cadence of your voice or maybe the whole conversation you have with the camera while you discuss the procedure or and your thought process while doing it. Whatever it is that makes your videos successful is hard to tell so don't change a thing. You keep putting out the content and we will keep watching. Thanks Matt

  • I like to take the ratchet apart and clean it if you have time. In a pinch you can usually just squirt atf in that hole in the end till it runs out the other. Cleans and lubes it well. Oil will gum it sooner. At least a little lube in that end hole or while apart will make it last much longer. Kroil is very thin and doesn't last near as long. I like the air compressor. Haven't seen a small one like that. The compressors are very simple and tend to use standard ball bearings if needed.

Just letting others know that the Subaru/Robin engine you have is definitely not a Honda Clone and I found them actually be more reliable than the Honda engine and it's clones. I find that they give far less issues even sitting for years.

  • Rather than a torch tip cleaner, you should get an old school glass syringe needle cleaner set. From when they would sterilize the all metal needles and the glass syringes. I have one, and it's perfect for carbies. Usually, they are inside a metal box divided into seven or more sizes, smallest being nearly hair thin.

  • "Subaru" i'm like, riiight, and my middle name is Schemer. Man, there should be a law against re-purposing other people's junk so you can make easy money. It should be illegal to put your brand name on some POS chinesium garbage. If you can't make it in your own factory, under your own anymore, then get lost off the market.

  • just wanted to say that you didn't need to take the whole recoil assembly of in order to stop it from binding. if you look on the end of the square shaft there is the tiniest little whole at the centre of the shaft all you have to do is shoot some 3in1 (or equivalent thin oil) in that and it should make its way onto the inner shaft and soak into the tiny sponge right at the other side of the hole

  • I can watch a carb strip anytime. I actually slowed down the speeded up bits to get the full satisfaction. (I probably don’t get out enough!) I cut my teeth as a preteen on a briggs and Stratton engine like that water pump by stripping it down and rebuilding it again. The feeling when it runs up for the first time is beyond description. That was 40 years ago! I have yet to find what size sockets fit the cover bolts! They are beautiful pieces of value engineering and I was hooked on engineering ever since. Love the variable height workbench 😉

  • Running a pump without water in it is almost as bad for the pump as running an engine without oil in the sump. Won't take long to 'kiss off' that shaft seal. If the pump draws water then you got away with it, this time. Dandy little air compressor, I'll bet that comes in handy around your place! First thing I'd do is have that Air Compressor's oil changed and be sure to use 'Compressor Oil' in it. ( i.e a good quality non-detergent single grade oil, like maybe SAE 20) BUT genuine 'Compressor Oil' is your best bet.
