For FE Power member David here I did a 3310 recently....
I tried to do a lighter yellow, but the secondary lever still turned out bright.  A decent light yellow vs and bright gold is often the difference in a few seconds of the dip and a few minutes to perfect drying.  I really need a small oven that I can control air flow and temp from 90-120 would be useful for this.
I also did the needle and seat parts with the bright zinc and blue dichromate.
I also in the last picture plated the throttle plates and soaked them in the black dichromate, which I think left a nice finish.

I think the canooter valve is crooked.

You shoulda seen the canooter valve before.....
holes drilled in the choke horn so it was a homemade double pumper.
and the carb appeared to be sitting in some sort of epoxy.  I had to soak it for a day to get the stuff gooey enough to peel off.
I had to clean it like 40 times to get all that black stuff to stop oozing out.

Probably a leaking permatexbottle,there is
evil gnomes loosening permatexbottle lids
and tipping them over when you look in the
other direction.Preferably on your camcard,
the jacket you put aside to not get it dirty
Or your gasket set

Thanks Jared, I'll try that out sometime.
I've been using simple green in an ultrasonic cleaner at 125degrees.  Typically 2-3 15 minute runs do the trick.  I need to find another cleaner for aluminum as SG makes them kinda get a smut that needs to be cleaned off.
Drew, I've heard that PineSol is a good alternative.
