SYNC CARBS WITH SINGLE GAUGE

Post by OTTERCOMET »



Some time ago I read an article (I think it was on GoldwingDocs) that provided guidance on how to sync the carbs if you only had one vacuum gauge to work with. If anyone can provide a pointer to an article or possibly a URL to a web site with this info it would be appreciated. Thanks

You can do them with aquarium valves shown here:

That way you can hook one gauge up to all four cylinders, and by opening and closing aquarium valves in sequence, you can read the settings for each cylinder.
