Carby carb question



my carb brass slider has teh groove down the side, is it essential to line up with the little notch on the side?? as i kind of sanded it away..



May cause some binding. But, if you make sure once you assemble it the slide is facing the right way around, with the spring pressure it may hold O.K.

The only problem I see is the slide turning and not sliding back down all the way due to the idle scrwew holding it up (because the bottom of the slide hits the screw.

You may overcome that by unscrewing the idle screw and blocking the hole and using the cable adjuster at the top of the carb to adjust your idle.
