Each carb body, top cover, piston had stamped number:
right fr #1
Right rear #2
left fr # 3
Left rear #4
It is wrong numbers, every book says right ones 1&3, left-2&4
who else had numbers on carb parts? Maybe rebuilder did it.

Just a guess butI would say that whovever worked on thecarbs in the pastput those numbers on the tops for his own reference prior to disassembly . They are not numbered per cylinder. When working on carbs all parts have to returned to their original locationand the easiest way to do that is to number them. I always use an electric engraver to mark carbs and bodiesI work on because carb cleaning fluid or gaswill wash off any type of liquid pen markings etc and then you run the risk of mixing up parts. If you are not having any issues with your carbs I would leave them alone. I also think that if you ever have occassion to disassemble them you should leave the numbers in the same spots,,,,,GM

I have to number everything... ADD and all...

I do use fine-point Sharpies though. Very hard to get that stuff off no matter what you use.

What kind of atrouble? Usually changing the o-rings and possibly the membrane will do the job. Repair kit is avaliable from Randakk.
In my case I only needed to change the o-rings which were leaking. And, of course, to clean the thing up witha lots of compressedair.
