Well finally i have it up and running.

I changed my fuel pump to the same one as the supplier of the carbs uses on their installs and all seems fine now. Had it running last night for about half hour. will take it for a drive this afternoon. now i just have to get some filters :roll: and get my interior back together.


was running it outside in the dark and 2 of the pipes out of the head were glowing red after running it long enough to chech the thermo fan was working. is this normal?

thats pretty normal... if you can see them glowing during the day then there might be something wrong...

If the pipes are getting that hot it might be running lean. Do you have access to a EGO gauge to check the mixture?

Cheers

If you need to spray anything in the carb's it isn't getting enough fuel to kick the engine over. I take it once it kicks over it will keep running?

ROFL. That's why I'm going EFI on the mighty boy down the track, I'm sick of rebuilding the carby!

The fuel that is left in the carbies after the engine is switched off isn't causing a vapor lock issue is it?

Cheers

Yeah im wishing i stuck with the EFI. I thought the carby would be easier. I had the same EFI manifold and all the stuff and I sold it to buy the Carbs :oops:

Anyways how would I find a vac lock and how would i fix it?

Vapor lock is in the fuel lines. Next time it's left for a little while, pull the main fuel line off, wait a couple of seconds, then reattach it. Try & start it & see what happens.

Cheers

Is there a lock off to prevent fuel flow when the ignition is off or engine not running? My mighty boy has a lock off on the carby, i had issues with it a while ago. Had a short in the wiring & it wouldn't open the fuel line up unless the engine was running, which is should when the ignition is on as well as when the engine is running....

Cheers
