Carb Sync adapter and tool

Post by jeremysmith035 » Mon Apr 08, 2019 2:27 pm



I want to sync my carbs but unsure of what carb sync tool to buy or the size of adaptors. The vacuum gauges going by the P/N in the manual are no longer available. In the manual it says you need a 2 inch and 6 inch adaptor, however I am not sure of how many of each size i will need. Any suggestions on a decent, easy to use carb sync set? (I am not interested in fabricating my own like I have seen in another post regarding this subject)

If i remember correctly the adapters are 5mm. you don't need different lenghts I have a set that are barely an inch long, stainless and ribbed to hold the tubing..the other kind are brass and two of each lenght.

You can make your own with a set of gauges from Harbor frt and some tubing and a board to mount them on. or buy any of the fluid gauge sets they all work about the same.
