Picked up a 17057274 carb. and the front tubes are missing, they hang down approx. 1 3/4 from base of air horn.I don,t believe mine had a small hole in them. Also hanging down 1 3/4 is the same depth the fuel bowl is or really close to it. Is it ok to shorten them up a 1/16 to a 1/8??

It's OK to shorten them.

We sell new ones and used ones.  The new ones have .040" holes in them nearly as I can remember....

I only saw one order for a pull-off and metering rods and a $35 MO.  I put in a set of secondary bleed tubes anyhow, do you need POE tubes instead?

You said "front tubes" and mentioned that you didn't believe yours had a small hole in them.  That's a little confusing on my end.  Do you need secondary bleed tubes (emulsion) or to you need POE tubes (the larger outer ones)?

So far we are unable to locate the second money order, double checking today to see if we missed it someplace in the deposits.

It's probably going to be best to start calling in the orders and using a bank or credit card.  So far this year we've had three payments mailed here come up missing and two gift cards never showed up. 

I suspect someone in the mail system someplace is steeling them.  I pick up the main every day myself and go thru it and only remember seeing one recent Money Order for $35 with a note attached for metering rods and a choke pull-off....

Cliff, with all do respect, I was sent the wrong POE tubes again. On page 85 in your book, where pencil is pointing to the tubes is what I need.These are .156 o.d. Tubes. On late model 71 and up carbs.Again I can send these back to you. Rich. Thank YOU.

I see now how the confusion started.  The 17057274 does not use primary POE tubes.

They only use secondary POE and secondary emulsion tubes.

You are wanting primary POE tubes for a carb that doesn't use them. 

My fault in this is that I didn't bother to measure the diameter of the tubes, just figuring you wanting the correct tubes for the 17057274 airhorn.

I'll dig some up primary POE tubes for the later carburetors tomorrow and send them over.......

We're hunkered down and weathering out the "storm".  Be safe as well.  Very important right now for folks to just stay home and stop the spread of the virus.....
