hard to start torana 202 uc

have had this problem for some time, decided to do some thing.I started by giving carby a good clean even the throat with 900wet using petrol as lubricant,make sure you take the main jet out as well as the metering jet which is above main jet(it just pushes out).Clean all parts,blow jets out with compressed air including all gally's (air holes in body of carby). Now this is the main part I put bushes into throttle base by removing throttle butter fly and then the throttle shaft you can only feel any movement in shaft when you have taken the butterfly out.This job can only be done in a lath,it has made a huge difference as before I did this when I got it started if I touched the throttle it would just cut out it is still not quit rite but I am an amateur on the lath but learning. I think any body with this problem should run this idea past there mechanic or a lath person(fitter&turner).Would be interested to hear from anybody who tries this and the result's, it certain has made mine sound much healthier it sounded really tinny before good luck all tom.

thanks for sharing your thoughts/experience on this. Sometimes a tell tale for worn throttle shaft/bushings is leaking fuel and spraying something eg carb cleaner around the area to check for a change in engine idle. Not sure why someone marked "no like" would be more constructive to have shared their wisdom why so we all benefit.

Someone could have accidentally bumped the โ€œnot likeโ€ button, easily done especially on smart phones, I doubt it would have been intentional
