The previous owner of my VT500C "thought" the vacuum petcock was bad. So he takes it apart and replaces everything inside with just a piece of rubber. And buys a petcock kit that he gave me with the bike.

He threw away the little metal piece that connects the 2 diaphragms!!!!!! :roll:

OH MY GAWD!!!!!

I spent a while cussing him today!!!!
New petcock is on order now and now I'll have a body that I can get chromed!!!!

My CB 350 refused to idle, banged along on one cylinder. Once it got up some revs it smoothed right out. Then it would flood or die when it slowed down. Only a complete disassembly of the carbs revealed the truth...

The low speed jet was GONE. Nothing. So when it was idling, it was flooding the cylinder. Just a gaping hole where it was. Parts bikes are my friend. Lucky I had one. Now it runs like a champ.
