Here is the accelerator pump cover. It is a good idea to put a straight edge over it and make sure it is nice and even on all sides. If it's not get some sand paper and a granite block or other flat object and lightly sand it down. On my other bug, I rebuilt the carb and had fuel squirting out my accelerator pump every time I gave it some gas. I pulled it off and sanded down the cover and that fixed the problem. These tend to warp when they are over torqued.

Rebuilding a Solex H 30/31 carb for the baja Part 2
Alright, on to part 2. Here we will build up the lower half of the carb and put everything together. Here is where we left off in part 1. The lower half is cleaned and ready. If you look down in the bowl in this picture, you will see where the drain plug goes in the side of the bowl. In the picture it's on the right hand side. The main jet will be installed down in the middle of the bowl with a screwdriver that will end up being placed in the drain hole. You will see in a few pictures what I mean.
