What I learned today about Indians:

Normally I loosen frozen screws and plugs in carb bodies by adding a little heat with a small acetlyene torch.
Today I discovered that SOME potmetal Scheblers are very high in magnesium.

Fatdog! H-D used Schebbies too!
And Hooter! Float level is always a wild card anyway. The 1928 Service Station Manual lists very specific float levels, but for cork floats which are temporary in today's fuels. Since even the density of fuels has probably changed since then, it will always be a matter of trial and error to get it right.

Cotton, jus makin fun, probably didn't have enough floatbowl to make a level, huh? So much for trial and error of loosening things. Musta worked great for all them years, and then, all of a sudden, ya learn something new.
A buddy of my, learning about air pressure, decided to fix a leak in his Trident tank. After washing it out and welding it, he made fittings up to hook to an air hose. Using 150 psi, turned that stock Triumph tank into something that looked like a pair of waterwings.
