Problem Solved - Leaky Carb LM3
« on: June 13, 2019, 04:58:31 PM »
Posted a few days back about how my left carb was leaking like a sieve and asking for help.  Wound up bringing the carb to the Guzzi Doctor today (Joe Walano).  Turns out I had a plugged vent tube.  I will be picking it up after I am done working tomorrow.  Maybe I can get a nice long ride in Sunday or Monday when I am off of work.

 :thumb: :thumb: Thanks for posting this. I don't think there's ever been a finer motor bike than your LM III. Hopefully we'll see a retro V85 replica soon . I'd be on it like a cheap suit.

Thanks for the follow-up on that. I would've never guessed that one! Good to know.
