This Complete Performance Rebuild Kit is the only carburetor rebuild kit that includes literally everything you need to get your carburetors in the absolute best performing condition!
If you pick up one of these rebuild kits you do NOT need a Performance Tuning Kit as well.
Your carburetor can be a daunting task and even more so when you don't have the proper parts. That great barn find that has 200 miles on it has been sitting with carbs full of ancient fossil fuels for 15 years and now she's yours. Why mess around with trying to use corroded parts and old rubber seals when you can easily replace them and eliminate these parts as a source of tuning headaches?!?! With this kit you can rebuild your own carbs to better than new condition!

You will need to remove the two plastic retainer rings on your stock slide in order to install the new diaphragms. A small set of dikes is all that's needed to clip them off. Install the diaphragm gently from the top of the slide. Be careful they can tear easily if you muscle them too hard or install them from the bottom. This diaphragm will hold itself in place in the channel at the top of your slide. When re-installing your slides, make sure the vent hole at the bottom of the slide is facing the cylinder head side of the carb.
Be very careful when installing these diaphragms, they are fragile and soft and can tear very easily.
Once the old diaphragm is removed, install the new diaphragm from the top of the slide don't attempt to shove the thing up from the bottom of the slide. This will guarantee you tear the slide! Use your fingernail to gently push the inner rib into the channel at the top of the slide. again the key word here is GENTLE!
