CARB SYNC USING SINGLE VACUUM GAUGE

Post by OTTERCOMET » Fri Apr 06, 2018 2:19 pm



I recall seeing a photo (and I think it was on this site) that depicted a setup using aquarium T connectors and shut off valves to connect the 4 carbs to a single vacuum gauge. I'm pretty sure I recall the setup but if someone has this information or can provide a link to said photo, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Seems fairly simple four tubes going to a four spot manifold with a cut off on each of the four tubes..open one at a time???? or four tubes each with a cutoff valve and just plug each into the gauge in turn not too hard to pop the tubes off and on???

Could be made with just tubing, five "T" connectors(one for each tube and one for the gauge) and four cutoff valves.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,

Enter "carb sticks" in google. I had a set many years ago. Works great. Just DO NOT rev the engine and quickly close the throttle.
