Dropped a tiny washer when cleaning carb ...

    I bought a complete tuners kit, rebuild kit and idle screw set up from CV Performance and was cleaning by CV40 carb (off an Evo 96 FLHR).

    Yup ... I did the dumb thing and let a tiny, what looks like stainless steel washer drop out when the cleaning carb. It's about the same size as the 92093 o-rings.

    Can any psychic ... or experienced tech ... tell me where it belongs as I guess this is a typical thing to do!

    Does it go above the idle jet adjuster (16014), e.g. in the order 'adjuster ... spring ... o ring ... washer'.

    * BTW, could I have permission to add URLs as I am obviously *not* a spammer and I cannot wait a year to solve this question!?!

    Thanks in advance.

    I agree it is probably the stainless steel washer in section 16014 of that exploded view. The picture is not a Harley CV40 (looks like a CVK32) but that section of the mixture screw is common across all Keihin CV style carburetors. The stainless steel washer fits between the o-ring and spring and protects that o-ring from cutting on the ground edge of the spring. The 3 pieces make up the Mixture Packing Kit found here.
