I just received a pair of Dellorto 45 Trijets that I had planned to clean, rebuild and mount on my 2.2L JH engine when I'm finished. When I opened the box and removed the carbs I found several deep scratches and a couple of deep gouges to the surface of one carb where the carb mounts to the intake manifold. No question in my mind that the damage will interfere with the "O" ring sealing. Any suggestions as to how I can salvage the carb? Is there some kind of filler that can be used that will fill in the damage and smooth the surface out so it is like new again?
