Some carbs are simple and some complex but both should be treated the same way.

Remove the carb and thoroughly wash the outside before turning each adjuster screw in and carefully counting the turns until it bottoms (eg 2.75) so the screw can be returned to the original position.

Most carbs need only thorough cleaning and few, if any, new parts.

The carb should be systematically and completely dismantled making drawings and notes during the process and then each component is thoroughly cleaned ensuring all air and fuel passages and jets are clear and use the reverse process to reassemble.

During the cleaning process each component should be examined for wear or damage using a magnifier and replaced if necessary. It is usually wise to replace the float valve and any flexible diaphragms but this isn't always necessary. If water is found inside the carb the fuel tank should also be cleaned.

Why does my mini cut out everytime i take the airfilter off

If it has an "SU" carb, check oil in dashpot, this fault rings a bell with me.

Will the 1965 f 100 twin i beam front suspension work under a 1976 f 100 and work right

measure the distance between the spring centre bolts. If it is the same and the tie rod is the same on the steering box pitman arm then it will fit.

Is there a conversion kit to convert a 1988 Toyota Tercel carburetor to fuel injection, and the back brake drums to disc?

Probably best to go to a Toyota car wrecking yard and see what they have.It would have to be the same model engine,and it is a lot to change due to having a computer and associated sensors that would need fitting also.
The Tercel came out with a couple of carbs models.One looked light a bell on its side(copy of a SU type carb),and gave a lot of grief.You can source the conventional type carb and fit as a replacement.
I hope this helps you.

How to tune twin carbs on a mini from start ? the car wont start unless i use easy start then runs rough and wont idle im not to clued up on these 14/ su carbs any tips? its the old one not bmw

First***Stop using starting fluid*** It will destroy your engine.
To set up the carbs, you will need to buy a vacuum balancer. This is a device that will show you how much downdraft each carb has. You then, have to adjust the linkage, so that they are the same. After that, you will need to adjust the fuel mix.
All in all, if you're not experienced in this, it is best left to a carburator shop, not most garages.
