Thread: My M51 choke shaft holes are wollard-out. How wollard is too wollard?

    My M51 choke shaft holes are wollard-out. How wollard is too wollard?

    Hello,
    After getting my carb apart I noticed that the holes for the choke shaft are kind of wollard-out. How wollard is too wollard? With the shaft in the holes you can definitely see space around it, not enough to drive a truck through but maybe a Trail 70. Is there a fix for this? Any way to seal it?
    Thanks much,
    Karl

    The choke shaft holes aren't critical , so being wallowed out isn't an issue. Unless they are bigger than the carb bore... a bit hard to do. The throttle shaft is a different thing though. That is why it has renewable bushings.

    Thanks much, Robbie, that is a relief to know. My throttle shaft had some wear but after putting in a NOS shaft I don't have any play in the bushings. Thanks again.
