Two Steps Forward, One Back - Carbs leaking fuel
I've been working on an 86 750 with 15,500 miles on it.
First thing I did was run Sea Foam in the tank through the bike.
It was running okay, but there was some issues with it. One of which was a petcock that was seeping fuel through the spacer block and diaphragm. Also, there was a large crack in the air box which was letting in tons of unfiltered air.
Today, I rebuilt the petcock with all new O-rings and this cleared up the seep from before. There was a small drip of fuel coming from the outlets. Maybe the spring needs to be replaced also? On prime, it really flows though.
I also replaced the air box.
When I fired it up. I started to get fuel from the front of the carbs pretty heavily. I am sure I hooked up the hoses back correctly as I marked them. This had never happened before with this bike.
Is it possible that the mixture screws had been set to offset the amount of air from the cracked air box (main duct) and that's why the fuel overflowed? Or, do I now have a stuck float also?
Again, this had never happened before. So, all of a sudden a stuck float?
Thanks for any help guys!
