The complete rebuild kit I purchased from Walcks has 7 replacement plug rivets in the package. They are all made of the same metal (aluminum?)
(5) Small - no taper
(1) "Medium" - slight taper at the end (closer in size to the large rivet)
(1) Large - no taper
The video references 4 to replace (small); one to replace (large) and one to avoid. Trying to figure out the plug/rivet combination I have as it relates to the video. I have not yet pulled the carb and my 2a stays in a storage area so I do not have a size reference at hand from looking at the carb (yet). Have the kits started including the "do not remove" plug rivet since the video was posted (2015)? Different plug types per WO model? Any input and/or clarification you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks.
Improvement has been made in most of the kits since '15. And not every Carter carb has the same number of rivet-plugs. Early models like the 539S and some 596S' will take all of the plugs. 636's will not. The one plug I was warning you about is still not found in the cheaper quality kits. Always verify all the plugs you need are in the kit before removing any from the carb.
Follow-up question #1. My carb has the extra plug/rivet you mention in your video @ 2:35. At first glance it looks like the small size. Can/should I remove/replace for proper cleaning? Replaced with one of the small rivet/plugs? Thanks in advance.

Thanks again..success! Removed rivets are certainly not as pretty as the snap-on or carter tool but no surface damage to the rivet ports. Now on to cleaning, obtaining nozzle retainer missing from Walcks kit and hoping I remember how to put everything back together sans extra parts.

Already printed and followed step by step for this project so far. Thanks for making documents and videos available for us. Greatly simplifies what initially seems like a very daunting project. I made cheat-sheets for each step w/ removed parts to simplify new part identification, orientation and reassembly steps. So far, so good.

m38mike: Got the T90C ready to go back into Blue Mule. And see why the OD won't shift. Then check all sensors for EFI. I think I'll need two cups of coffee right away. And maybe a Lee-meister SPAM sandwich!

m38mike: I'll take a cup. Clear warm and dry for the next week here. Think we'll go canoeing at Turquoise Lake near Leadville today. Sunny and 70's so the electric canoe should work great. Thanks Oilly.
