    That is the one I have , the cut away diagram is a bit light on details when it comes to the gearbox selector and how it hangs together

    Love the sound of that old girl. My brother had a TC185 & doubled me everywhere in the bush. Love the way you've worked your magic. Great looking bike! Can still even remember the smell...

    Kiffsta, do you mean Threebond engine conditioner. I have not used it .Do you soak the carb in it? Where can you buy it?

    From their website, seems it is their engine conditioner product. No product called carb cleaner.specifically.
    Will try it. For $12 can't go wrong.

    That's the stuff we use for cleaning carbs and upper engine. This Vid isn't great, but it will give you an idea of what the product was designed for. It's the best product I've used for cleaning carbs ever!
