Metal filings from carb HELP PLEASE

Postby readsandypaul » Fri Aug 16, 2019 3:09 pm

Hi, Compleatly puzzled I have a Mugello 225 with 30mm phbh carb only done 1700 miles, also if its any help Anthony Tambs stator with af lightweight flywheel i dont know if that helps.
I am getting brass or copper coloured filings coming from the carb mouth onto the side pannel and on the floor board by the carb. The head has been stripped and found no problems. I cannot work out what is happening, does anyone have any clues THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP, i am about to get it dynoed in a few days so any help would be great before that, THANKS Paul.
