Single Carb cleaning

Postby tallman21 » Mon Apr 04, 2011 11:30 am



Ok guys, Heres a good one.

I took the single carb (someone put a single carb kit on it) off my 80 gl1100. 1st. I know its a Holley Carb but i cant seem to find the model anywhere. It has 80589 and 1421 Stamped on the sided but whenever i search those nothing pops up.



Also as soon as i Opened it up these 2 parts fell out. No idea where they go.



Thats about it. Here are a few more pictures

i got it back together after cleaning it an it is still having the same problem. The bike idles really well but when you crack the throttle at all it bogs down and just down. Any idea whats going on?

That looks like a allen bit, laying there...it could have fallen in there somehow..That might be a BD-240 eng. for an International Harvester carb..I think ha ha.. :lol: Check it out and see if I'm right..Here check this out..http://www.carbkitsource.com/carbs/cata ... index.html I went to the holly site to find the information..Isn't it 1A or 2A, or 3A

If it bogs down when you open the throttle then it is too rich. Can you try disconnecting the accelerator pump and see if that improves things? How does the ignition advance work on your bike? Is it vaccuum operated (Diaphram) and if so how is it connected up?

I'm willing to bet he doesn't have the vacuum advance hooked up at all on it..I bet there's a way though..Thrasherg, that's a really good question makes me wonder if any of the other guys that have converted to single carbs have installed a pipe and hose to the vacuum advance or is it possible.. Tallman21 does your vacuum advance canister still have a hose hooked up to it..?? where does it go?

hmmm ok first where is the vacuum advance? all of the hook ups on the carb are being utilized. Also i figure out what it is. It is a Holley carb model 1940 that was made for a company called Daytona. Also im not sure how the ignition sequence works on it. Just dont know enough about bikes i guess. Ill take some pics tomorrow for you guys and post them on here

On the right side of the bike just behind the engine look for a canister that has a hose fitting on it, that's your vacuum advance canister, is there a hose on it or did they block it off at the hose fitting ?..Might use a flashlight to see it..

Here's a kit for your carb..1940http://scoutparts.com/products/?view=product&product_id=14519 there's a kit on the site above too...I thought you said it was 1421..Where did 1940 come from is it stamped on the side..Are you certain it's not 1904, because that fits the other number above..

Good job finding which carb it was..Now you can buy a manual for it maybe and find where those parts go..I sure don't know...that sucker is old..

Is it connected to the carb? If it isn't connected or is leaking it will also cause bogging when you accelerate..

Lioks like it was leaking prett bad cause it was attached. I cut the hose and reattached it see if yhat works. How long does it take the carb to de pressurize?

Ok so i found that port u were talking about



It does connect to the carb but there is a junction halfway through the hose that was frayed so i cut it back and reconnected it.



The bike still idles really well. When i disconnect that hose it idles worse. Still, whenever i crack the throttle it bogs down and shuts right off. If i gradually give it gas then the rps will increase and it wont bog out and shut off. but anytime i crack it, it cuts out. this is starting to get frustrating.

Try this, start the bike, let it idle, pull off the hose at the front at the carb and put your mouth to the hose and suck on it and the engine rpm's should raise , if it doesn't your vacuum advance is locked up.. You see the suction from the carb moves the pick up coils that is operated by suction thru the canister, there's a arm that pulls into the canister and moves it, what happens is, rust starts in there and things freeze up or the diaphragm in there gets worn and holes follow..I think you have a carb issue..Maybe you have a clogg somewhere in the carb..I don't know..As much as I hate to say it but your mechanical advance probably needs cleaning, that's under where the canister lives..It's a job to get to it but not too bad once you have done it,, Remove the swingarm..ect. I would remove the carb and check your passages with a fishing line or wire or something..Is it all sealed well at the intakes..Good o-rings? No air leaks.?

I suppose you could grind off the bad bolt head flush, drill a hole in the center where it was and use left handed taps and left handed bolts to get it out..Most gm engines have left handed bolts on there tensioners.. just a thought...I know you probably don't have left handed bolts or taps..Maybe a friend does..
