The K10-HDC Walbro rebuild kits seem to not come with new inlet needle lever. Specifically, the earlier non-captured lever.
These carburetors have often been rebuilt a number of times and the lever bent/ adjusted a number of times. They could easily be deformed significantly from the correct angles & shape. Is there any guide, picture or other information to show how they should be ideally shaped?
