    Warren, If your induction system has a charcoal canister to recirculate fuel tank gasses you may be able to place a small amount of low density foam ( Like the stuff available from Clark Rubber ) in the suction pipe before the air cleaner. In the 2400 carby this is a major source of the blockages that occur in the emulsion tubes and air correction jets. I am not so sure of the 2200 with the vertical canister air cleaner. The 2400 vapour tube from the charcoal canister inters between the filter element and the carb intake instead of before the filter element. Great design ( NOT )
    Cheers Gerry

    The 2200 is the same. I don't have a compressor so, I have probably just moved some dirt around instead of removing it. I will "clean" it again on the weekend

    The idea of a little piece of foam is to trap the carbon 'Árumbs' as the aged canister slowly disintegrates. This is the muck that ends up in the emulsion tubes and air correction jets!
