It's carburetor or carburettor, but not carberator. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p>--------------------<br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.geocities.com/gasolinefumes/index.html"><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>My Website</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--></a><!--EZCODE LINK END--></p><i></i>

I usually call it a Carber-what-er, <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :D --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> so no surprise I spelled it wrong setting up the forum. It's been two years, and I've spelled it correctly since... I'm surprised it hasn't been pointed out until now. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br> <p><!--EZCODE FONT START--><span style="font-size:xx-small;"><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Kyle Jones<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.angelfire.com/de/ksj/myswift.html"><br>Junk-Yard Turbo set-up, formerly NOS-fed, constantly evolving 1989 Suzuki Swift</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--></strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--></span><!--EZCODE FONT END--><br><br></p><i></i>
