It takes a delicate touch

Bauer sez:-
Fred, I was aware of the half moons on the dia's and they are all positioned correctly.
Hi Bauer, um, yes, but,
you gotta be real careful fitting the covers back on or the slightly fat rim around the diaphragm won't be properly trapped in it's groove to make the proper seal even if the half-moon is in the right place. Over the years (and those things are older than you are fer chrissake) the rubber has changed shape just enough that it don't quite fit nice any more. I smear them with hydraulic seal installation grease to initially stick them in the grooves then slowly & sensuously slither the covers on to feel them touch the carb body all round then hold the cover down while I put the screws in.
Fred Hill, S'toon.
