I bought a bike a week ago with the carb in a hundred pieces in a box. I though about putting it back together, but for the price of all the new parts I would need, I just bought a new one on ebay. New to me anyways. Long story short, I'm missing a boot and all the hoses. Can y'all help me figure out where they go while I wait for my new carb to get here? There are six hoses in all, four along the center of the carb and two on the outside of it. The outer two lines along the center, connected to the float bowl by black fittings are fuel lines right? I assume they connect to the petcock, but does it matter in which order they connect? Do I need a t fitting for them, maybe? Also, I'm considering an in-line fuel filer, is that a good idea?
Adjacent to the fuel lines are lines I'm not familiar with, but they do have hoses connected to a t, which connects to a black plastic thing. What do they do and where does that thing connect to? It looks like there's some clear epoxy on the line there, is that ok?
I'm pretty sure the lines on the outside are vacuum lines. Where do they connect? Should all these hoses have those little wire hose clamps all over them? The diagrams seem to think so, but there aren't clamps on the t fitting or the little plastic thing. Would regular screw down style clamps work here?
Also, my new carb isn't coming with hoses either, what type of hose should I get from autozone or wherever? BTW, cheap but functional is better than showy but functional, in my book. This is a learner bike anyway, and it's already got a bit of road rash and rust and pretty hoses are just going to lighten my wallet.
