i know this is a tiny bit off topic , well i got my carbs back in and all i need to do is sync them. That was much much easier than i thought it would be. I have been putting off cleaning the carbs for about 4 months. they shine all nice but i did have a question about them. I took pictures of them before/after so i wouldnt forget where stuff goes. but one thing perplexes me. I have two left over connections on the carbs. I tried looking through my pics but i didnt get any of that angle could anybody tell me maybe what this connection does or is supposed to be hooked up to
highlighted in red is the connections its 1 on each carb, 1 is a zoomed in pic so you can see it better and the other is zoomed out so you can see the orientation of where it is in relation to the rest of the carb. but you cant see it very well.
tomorrow I will look at my manual / diagrams if they have them to see if i can figure it out
anyway back on topic. I ran it for prob 15 min but i quit bc i wanted to go to bed so I will try after work. BUUUUTT i did gather more information...
the smell- i guess you could say is sweet... not entirely sure, do you mean its supposed to smell like burning sugar ? it didnt smell bad if thats what you mean.
Also i will deff need new crush gaskets.
finally! in that time period... the front started spewing white smoke also out of the exhaust. Less than the other one though.
This is good and bad. It relieves my stress a little because the likely hood of both cylinder heads cracking is unlikely especially since it wasn't that hard of a fall.
bad because both of them are now....
The only thing I can think of that changed before and after the "crash" was the coolant I used. I used different coolant, the stuff in the cycle to begin with was green and the stuff I added was blue. BUT i made trippley sure that there was no silicates and phosphates etc in the coolant I was adding because mine cant take that.
Any suggestions? I am going to run it longer tomorrow after work and if that doesn't stop it, then i am going to buy that sealant stuff as a temporary fix till my mechanic can take a look at it
