>Thanks, the manual shows a picture of this tool but I'm not sure where to
>To the list...
>Does anyone know of a source for this carb adjusting tool?
>P,S. Mispelling in subject on purpose
>>You should use the special tool on the Strombergs, as it is possible to
>>damage them without.
>>This is not a "Triumph" part, but you should be able to get it at any
>>good car accessories shop. I found mine under "Mini Cooper carb
>>adjustment tool" - the tool fits any car with a Stromberg carb.
>>The tool has a hollow tube with a long Allen key in the centre. The
>>Allen key screws the needle up or down, "richening" or "leaning" the
>>running mixture respectively. (The idle mixture is set seperately)
>>The hollow tube with the T-handle holds the piston (in which the needle
>>sits) in place to prevent it turning and causing damage.
>>I can't remember the exact design, but if the piston twists, it could
>>break the rubber diaphragm or if the piston is non symetrical, the bore
>>in which it travels.
