    Wynn's carb cleaner. Lovely stuff.

    Only, there's these little rubber diaphragms in the sides of the carbs.

    Or more accurately, there *were* these little rubber... :^(

    It's also slightly disconcerting that despite *completely* stripping the
    carbs there are five or six bits in the rebuild kit that have no obvious
    home. Heigh-ho...

    Are you sure it was just the Wynns doing it not just that the diaphragms
    were perished, anyway? I used to use loads of the stuff during my
    murrican car days and never had it do that to any of them.
    Again, from murrican car experience, particularly with Holley carbs,
    there'd be a lot of parts common to all their models in a range. Fer
    instance, the Holley Vacuum Secondary models and the Double-Pumpers were
    pretty much identical 'cept for the way the secondary flutterbys and jets
    were actuated. So, a 600cfm v/s and a 600cfm DP would likely share the
    same basic throttle-body.

    As a result, a rebuild kit would /always/ contain bits you didn't need;
    different or extra springs, different "squirters", gaskets and more.
