Some of that may have been an effect of the video compression.

I thought Black_Peter's fork disassembly video was pretty good. The camera is centered facing a work bench. He stands behind the bench and just goes to work on the forks. I like the placement of the camera- slightly above bench level pointing slightly down. The layout makes things very easy to see in my opinion.

I'll try something a little different. I'm sort of limited on camera angles because of how my work bench is situated.

Great job man. I have done around 6 sets so far, and I wish I had these videos when I started. These videos are quite good. I am sure this will be a huge help to anyone getting started with a carb rebuild.

I have a question on setting float height. I have always set float height with the carbs setting down (upside down) for measuring the height of the floats. Why do you do it with them sideways and not all the way settled on the float needle?
