    Thanks for all the help I've received. I got my carb rebuild kit a few days ago for my CT70. Have been using a video tutorial last several days online teaching me to disassemble and do carb work on my wife's 2009 Honda Metro scooter so haven't yet started on my CT70.Almost done with Metro.
    I googled looking for a video CT70 carb tutorial but only have found them for CT90 and some other carbs that don't look like my CT70's. Only found more kits for sale.
    Any members here know of a 1970 CT70 carb rebuild tutorial I can follow please? As explained before I'm self-taught on gas engine work and have never done this.
    Thank you each and every one as always. Don

    The single most important step, cleaning the emulsion tube orifices. Use a thin wire, such as that from a twist-tie, to physically clean each of the wall orifices. They have to be perfectly clean & free-flowing. That can make the difference between smooth throttle response and a world of frustration.

    The concept of what to clean is the same for the met carb as a ct70. Lots of small orifices. Also, be sure to use the EXACT size of tool for whatever you need to unscrew.

    I'll study well each step as I go. When I worked on my wife's Metro I'd pause the video, complete the step, start the video again. The photo tutorial will be such a help. Thanks agai all. Don
