Vacuum lines 18 and 19 placement.

Postby the draggin » Sat Aug 20, 2016 8:49 am



Which line goes on the top fitting on the carb end? I was trying to find a vacuum leak and removed the carbs to look underneath the carbs but found nothing to cause my surging/sputter issue. Whatever I did is is not sputtering or surging now, but I have a flat spot on acceleration just past accelerator pump boost. I think I got my 18 19 lines messed up.

I haven't finished my first cup of coffee yet so don't shoot me if I'm wrong but 19 goes on the top fittings then tees together and runs to the left solenoid.

Thanks will give it a try. My service manual is for an 88 and it doesn't even look like what is on the bike.

Yes I did. I had the 19 on top at the front of carbs and on the lower on the back. Going back together after JB Weld dries on the breather/vent tube nut, it pulled through when removing air filter housing instead of just unscrewing like it was designed to.
