Carb balancing - how hard is it?
Written by israel_96gtp on 6/21/2010 at 07:11 pm

Trust me, I did it the hard way -- pretty sure (and this was 10 years ago...)
that I tightly gripped the tube in my hand, using my palm as a funnel, and
created a complete mess trying to fill part of the tube. Figured I would share
a tidbit of wisdom from my own, umm, stupidity.

But for the good part, I'm still using my same $1.55 tool 10 years later, with
no end in sight.

Ha! Yeah, that's WAY to easy. At least this way even though it only costs a
$1.55, you really feel like you *should* have paid more since it took like an
hour to get it in and another few for it to settle. Doh!

myself, the easiest (and most duh-simple) way to get the fluid in to the tube is
to put one end in the can of ATF, and suck the fluid into the tube either with a
Mity-Vac or your mouth.
