In my experience, the carbs are not hard to work on. But, because some of the parts are aluminum alloy and some are brass, they are easily damaged. Also, you will need to modify a screwdriver to be...

RV-12 912 ULS carb jetting

I have looked but with no success. If I recall correctly, the RV-12 uses individual oiled fabric air filters on the carbs (rather than a single air box).

Can someone provide the RV-12 factory...
