    Default Changing Reed Petals

    I've got a OBR 34 FM and the reed petals are shot, so i've got a replacement set but wondered - has anyone ever changed them and how hard / complicated job is it?

    its an easy job mate,
    just remove the carb,
    undo the four retaining bolts,
    pull the reed block out,
    undo the petal retaining screws, two for each petal,
    take off the cover plate thingy and the petal, do the opposite to fit em,
    line up the petal with the side of the block and tighten down,
    dont over tighten the screws though cos there very small,
    and dont lose the screws either cos there an oddball size ,
    refit the reed block making sure you have the pulse hole and cutout for pulse in gasket at the correct side,
    tighten down , refit carb,
    jobs a good un
