Re: Setting choke gap

More confused now as the diagrams contradict themselves
Do you set choke flap gap with cam on highest step or set on second step as per both diagrams

Re: Pierburg 2e3

Thanks for your help
It was hard to distinguish the gasket from the packing plate on the bottom of the carb it was that faded,I sanded it off (I think) but should the actual packer come away from the carb or is it fixed and part of the carb
