TM32 conversion
« on: January 19, 2021, 10:36:11 AM »
My good friend Frank B came over day before yesterday and we started prepping our TM32s for installation. We used 3 MM OD brass tubing sourced from McMaster Carr for the oil lines and a 7/64 (2.7 MM) drill bit. We had to ream the holes just a bit and then a drop of red loctite and Bob's your Uncle.

Is the OD the same as the OEM RD350 VM28 carb at the reed (intake/engine side)?

I put TM34's on my RZ Banshee 421 motor, and had to lean the needle jets down a few steps.

Maybe it is just me, but getting the cable back into the slide is a major PIA. That spring drove me bonkers.

Hemostats work great to compress and hold the spring while you get the cable and plastic jammy situated.

Wasting time on 2T forums since the dawn of the internet.

Playtime was limited today. I got one side disassembled and the reed block cleaned up. Did a quick mock up.

It fills the hole up. Air filters will be close...

I got initial jetting specs from M in SC ( Thanks Mark!!) and ordered the brass from Niche Cycle.
Main 230
Pilot 40
Stock needle
P6 needle jets
Clip will be in the middle and air screws initially at 1.5
I also ordered some P4s and received a set of TM28 slide springs. The latter should help with the throttle effort and save my old wrist.
