#3 carb problem

Post by flash2002 »

Hi guy's, I have a small problem, I'm trying to adjust my carbs on my 79 GL1000. When I connect my home made vacum gauge to the carbs and start the motor, the #3 carb wants to suck all the juice in one shot, the other carbs are ok just that one carb as a lot of vacum. Is there a trick to this, I did install valves to slow the vacum but #3 sucks like a hoover :shock: . The carbs where all redon.

It's throttle valve is still closed while the others are open a bit.Manually set each one closed first to get them close,then vacuum sync.
also, If you could add a vessel/chamber above your fluid level on each hose,it would hold the fluid in the DIY gauges and not get sucked into the engine.
Kinda like a reserve chamber.
