Disconnect the throttle linkage and wiring.
Undo the two nuts holding it to the intake manifold.
And it's out. I took the top off (again) to get at what I think was the problem.
That round black thing at lower right is the float. That copperish strip above center is a spring that holds the float in place, kind of. In this shot, I have the spring wrapped around the pin on the float. Why? Because when I took it apart initially, the whole thing sort of flew apart on me and I wasn't sure how to put it back together. I made a guess, and guessed wrong.
After taking apart the extra carb I got, it was apparent that the spring in fact sits atop the pin, not around it. Duh, in retrospect.
We got to go to Deer Lodge for Pumpkin Sunday at Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site. We parked by the big horse for ease of relocating Ludwig. It wasn't quite as cold as E's outfit suggests, but we were (are) all a little sick and bundled up accordingly.
Tater Tot might've been a little nervous about lollygagging on railroad tracks. She's a very cautious person.
She was not really into it this year at all. The only activity she agreed to was coloring; she even refused to choose a pumpkin (Melissa smuggled one out for her).
After a truncated Pumpkin Day, we headed to Butte to run some errands--at the Goodwill I got a pair of Dickies and a pair of Carhartts, Melissa got some jeans and fabric, and E got a jumper and a brand new rocketship sleeping bag. Melissa took this shot, which she thinks makes Ludwig look like a Vanagon, on the way back.
So I'm declaring my battle against Ludwig's right carburetor a tentative success.
