Disassembling the carburetor K-151, K-151D
It is not recommended to unscrew the screws securing the throttle valves on the axles and remove the dampers unless absolutely necessary, as their displacement can lead to jamming of the dampers in the channels
The brass connecting tubes of the channels pressed into the body should not be removed in order to avoid violating their tight fit.
The carburetor should be disassembled only as a last resort, if flushing and blowing with compressed air without disassembly does not eliminate the sticking of the throttle and air dampers and does not lead to complete cleaning of the jets and channels from deposits.

After dismantling, wash the carburetor parts in gasoline or thinner, then blow out all the channels in the carburetor parts with compressed air.
Assembling the carburetor
The assembly of the carburetor assemblies and the carburetor itself as a whole is carried out in the reverse order of disassembly, taking into account the following:
It is necessary to check the mating surfaces of the throttle body for nicks and cracks.
Check the ease of turning the shutters in the housing and the clarity of their return to their original position after removing the force.
Check the mating surfaces of the carburetor body for nicks and warping in the area of the holes for the mounting screws.
All cardboard, paronite and rubber gaskets must be replaced with new ones.
The screws connecting the carburetor body parts should be tightened tightly, but without excessive force, which could lead to deformation of parts made of soft alloys.
The nuts securing the carburetor to the engine intake pipe should be tightened without excessive force and only on a cold engine.
After assembly and installation, the carburetor must be adjusted.
