Rattle can from ACE/hardware store. After All the passages are cleaned, I put two light coats of 'Wrought Iron', Flat black paint on the outside. Holds up nice, and is resistant to oil, gas, and rust.

I also let the carb set overnight, under a light bulb on the desk, to 'set' the paint.

NO complaints yet, after about 5 yrs of doing it this way, with not ONE return on any overhauls.

AND.....NO.....Sandblasting will not stop any carb overhaul, from working properly, if the overhaul is done right and the passages are cleaned completely out.

Sandblasting is a NO-NO?????? ..........That is an 'OLD-WIVES' type tale.

Just got to know how to do it RIGHT!!!!

Agree, an old-wives is a good assessment. I have bead blasted old M/S carbs as well as others for decades with no problems resulting from doing so. One word of caution when so doing is to never blast the 1/4 X 40 threads for the main needle or the needle might quickly pop out upon starting the engine!

The only issues I've experienced with sandblasting is when the tiny little particles of sand get lodged in the orifices of the jets, and that really is not an issue either because those jets SHOULD have been removed before going to the blast cabinet.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeThere are smaller drilled passages in those M/S carbs than the jets! And impossible to see, as opposed to the jets, which you can see. You can & should probe all of them. I do, Gary does, etc.
