Another Mystery Part

Post by Dr. Frankenstein »

Anybody know what this is, and where it goes...? I think it dropped off the carb when I took it out, but I can't find anything Missing, and I can't see it in the parts diagram...

No, it's a hard plastic, like bakelite or something; the rolled edges make me think it's meant to roll on something...this dropped out from Somewhere when I pulled the carbs on my '78 GL1000...I had something similar drop out of the '75 carb when I was working on It.

Yeah, it's weird - a fetzer-valve spacer, maybe...?

An armature for the blinker-fluid roller...??

An IUD for the carburetor gremlins...???

I guess if it's important I'll find out soon enough... :lol:
