Post subject:  Carb Milling

A friend wants me to mill the air horn off the top off his 4150. I've never milled a carb before, so I have questions. I'd rather not mess with it, but he knows I have a mill/drill and has been pushing me to give it a go.

Is it faster to saw off as much as possible before milling?

Do you mill the entire top of the carb to make the whole top even and pretty?

I've done more than a few with a hack saw and a flat bastard cut file. ;-) Here's one that I milled last year and yes, it might be better and faster to use a hack saw to take the bulk of that material off then finish machine it on the mill.

That looks real good Ken. I'll show him what you did by hand and tell him to do his own.

Ron, this one was MACHINED, not filed!! I did hack saw it first though then used the milling machine to finish it. But yeah, the "old school" way of doing them was hacksaw and file.

Sorry Ken, I read it too fast. It should be a fairly simple deal.
