Nikki Rebuilding Tips
- Find the carburetor number, which is usually stamped on the carburetor top. It may be worn off. Use the number to select a carburetor kit. Insert the number in the search box at the top of this page. If you can't find the number then use the application for your best guess, then match the old parts with what we have in the Nikki carburetor kit photo.
- Use a cookie sheet under your carburetor. This will catch any small parts that want to roll away.
- Take plenty of digital photos while taking your carburetor apart. You may forget where a particular part belongs, or how it mounts. This is especially helpful when it comes to linkage.
- Use something like Simple Green to clean the carburetor. Soak for 2 hours. Be careful because prolonged soaking will damage the Nikki carburetor body.
- After soaking, wash with hot water, then blow out each passage with compressed air. Pay special attention to the smaller passages. It doesn't take much to plug these up.
