Leaking from petcock after rebuild
The rear carb (the one you said was sticking, but had the longer movement) had the needle full of gunk.The two videos are before and after. I saw no dirt though, just a little varnish. The tips on both looked very nice, and sharp. I tried finding a video that showed travel of the floats, but no luck.
I can put it together, and it takes me 3 minutes if that to get the carbs out. I just unscrew the clamp holding the boot to the carb and pop out the carb. I never had to remove the boots from the block, even with the stock air cleaner in. Iím just hesitant to fill it up with gas again, after my last shower.
I was watching the videos this morning and I got it. The front cylinder has less travel, but the float valve is closing all of the way. The rear cylinder (with more travel) closes the float valve at roughly the same amount of travel, but allows for more travel of the float. To simplify my question - was this by design? I see no broken or damaged parts, and the float has no resistance when operating. Should I move this question to a new thread since the topic has changed?
