What are the hoses on a carburetor?
They are on the left side rear of the carb. Attach a hose to each one and run them either to the upper airbox area underneath the seat, or down below the carbs and to the rear of the engine. Like you said the petcock has two tubes; one is a vacuum and the other is the fuel feed to the carbs.
What are the three hoses on a carburetor?
One is the bowl drain, and the other is a overflow drain. And the other is your fuel inlet.
What do carburetor vacuum lines do?
In many cases, you will also find vacuum ports on carburetors and throttle bodies. Since it isn’t feasible to attach most accessories and components directly to an intake manifold, vacuum hoses essentially “transmit ” vacuum from the manifold to wherever it is needed.
What are the 3 main basic parts of carburetors?
Components of carburetors usually include a storage chamber for liquid fuel, a choke, an idling (or slow-running) jet, a main jet, a venturi-shaped air-flow restriction, and an accelerator pump. The quantity of fuel in the storage chamber is controlled by a valve actuated by a float.
Some carbs do not have a drain screw. They have a hose attached to bottom of carb. This has a seal in the end to stop FUEL coming out. It is only used for carb servicing/draining.
Where does the fuel line go on a carburetor?
The (clear) main fuel line with the filter (filter inside the fuel tank) goes to the bottom of the carburetor (or the elbow shaped nipple). The (clear) fuel intake line runs from the top of the carburetor (straight nipple) and goes to the short post on the back of the primer bulb.
How do you test a vacuum Petcock?
You test the petcock by removing the fuel line, not the petcock itself. A vacuum-operated petcock should not let any fuel through it in the “ON” or “Reserve” positions unless the engine is running. It’s normal for fuel to flow through it when in the “Prime” position.
Does a carburetor need vacuum?
