Ear-shave question

So there are three hoses off the surge tank box, all three are connected to this brass(?) cylindrical thing all three hoses are connected to directly in front of the battery. One of the hoses is connected on the right side of the front cylinder head. Do I remove all these? The main two I am concerned about; the one connected to the front cylinder and the small breather hose that attached to the carburetor. I know about the crankcase filter and pod filters.

The brass cylindrical deal is the suction valve for the emissions control.

Removing all this, we call it coasters or coastering.

Small vac port on the right carb gets plugged, hose gets removed.

The reed boxes on the each head can be removed and the hole covered with a plate. These are homemade or you can buy them. These are the coasters.

Or, instead of removing, the reed box hose nipples can also be capped with rubber caps, or 1/2" copper water caps.

The long 1/2" hoses on each head (each reed box) get tossed.

Check for the threads on this for more ideas.

What about the left side of the carbs? Do I cap that one as well? I cant seem to find a straight answer in the other threads.

Or you can leave the reed plates on, with a little bit of hose and get a marble and shove in there. The hard part is finding damn marbles. Libs have outlawed them in many states so you can't find them anyplace. I finally found a little bag of marbles at the CVS.

Yup, left carb vac line to center port of the peacock.

That's right! Coasters and Marbling, that's a thing here.

Oh hell, it was another thread where we had peacocks and nipples.

My peacock is usually on top of the garage, screaming at the neighbor's kids.
