Drain screw question

Postby harkgold » Tue Jan 10, 2012 5:43 pm



I'm in the process of rebuilding the carbs on my '84 GL1200 Interstate and I'm noticing little things missing as a result of the bikes prior owner, like some of the tiny nylon washers that are used on the carb linkage for example. And this is causing me to ask questions.

I can't tell from the photos in my shop manual, Clymers, or Haynes manuals if there is a rubber "O" ring being used on the bowl drain screws. Can anyone please advise me on this?

Appreciate it!

Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

Thanks a bunch Mooseman! That explains the "O" ring that came in my rebuild kit that I couldn't find a home for. Evidently a prior shade-tree-mechanic failed to put back several things on this bike. Fortunately they consist of little things like this that are easily replaceable. But you need a Keen eye for what is possibly missing. It's no wonder when I tried to turn over this engine that fuel was running out of the bottoms of the bowls.

Thanks again!
