Z50 Carburetors are a little bit different from the CT70 and CT90 Carburetors, but the same principles apply to all the carburetors. You should have a rebuild kit on hand before you start to work on the carb. It is easier to remember where all the parts go, if the rebuilt is done right after disassembly. Always a good idea to take some photographs, just in case you forget where and how everything fit.
