    Inside a working carburetor video

    Someone posted this on the rotary wing forum and thought it was a great watch! Most interesting watching the slow motion captures maybe half way through....

    Dang it! If this gets around, I won't get all those free lawnmowers people used to give me which were ALWAYS not working due to dirty or stuck carbs.

    That was really cool to see it actually do what it does. That fuel atomizing when the intake stroke sucked it in was awesome.

    What surpises me is the longevity of the carb while continually subjected to such shock loads and vibration. No wonder to me now they need rebuild ever so often.

    Very well done! enlightening how the fuel stream behaves during engine strokes. A great learning tool.
