Choke plungers restored, working fine. All other circuits/floats functioning, wet tested perfect. A controlled blast of compressed air confirms perfect slide action.

at least both carbs are consistent. No matter, they'll be dealt with shortly.

There’s this stuff:
Liquid Bottle Fluid Drink Paint


Aviation grade corrosion inhibitor. Goes on wet, dries to a waxy like coating. NOT cheap. $28 a can from Grainger. A bit less at an aviation supply place like Aircraft Spruce though. $17 a can there:

Yes, I'm still active in carb business. Yes, I can do your carbs. Ship them to me via USPS Priority (using their medium size box) from anywhere in CONUS for about $16. I assure you they'll be ready for return shipment within 48 hours.

A recent sample of my work.......

Now split and fully disassembled, found all the usual....hardened, stuck orings everywhere, nasty insides, way overtightened screws on bowls and tops, ovaled needle jets (unique to Ducati). Small parts in ultrasonic right now, getting a jump ahead.

Owner advises bike (Ducati 900SS/FE) has sat since 2001, wowsers. And he has authorized install of brand new Y-4 needle jets (which I stock specifically for these situations)
