1993 dyna wide glide has. Open port left side of carb should it have a rubber cap on it or a hose

Joe. if you didn't remove a hose then it shouldn't have fallen off. Sometimes there are nubs that stick out on the side of the carbs that look as if a hose should be attached, but there isn't one. It sounds as if the ports for the from the pilot jets are clogged.
If you remove the Pilot jet (the closest jet to the cylinder) and spray carb cleaner thru the hole that the jet was removed from it should come out in the neck of the carb and also directly under the front edge of the slide. If it comes thru both locations go to the back of the carb and spray the cleaner into the holes at the bottom of the opening and make sure one of them comes out of the hole for the pilot jet. when that happens make sure the jet itself is clean and reinstall it. Hopefully your problem is now solved. if not please post again.

My 2000 Harley Davidson Dyna Wide Glide will not stay running without full choke. The choke goes in by its self as it is running and it will stall. Any time you slow down to turn or stop the bike, it will...

Your problem is far more serious than something a little Sea Foam will fix. I would guess that your slow speed jet is clogged up or you have a major vacuum leak somewhere. Look for the vacuum hose that plugs onto the backside of the carb and see if it's come loose. But, if your bike is equipped with the vacuum operated petcock and it's evidently working, this is probably not the problem. You could have vacuum leaks at the intake to head junction as well. If the bike was allowed to sit up for an extended period of time, the gasoline left in the float bowl evaporated and left behind the "varnish" that has plugged up the jets. The carb needs to be completely disassembled and all the small passageways cleaned out by soaking it in a commercial carburetor cleaner.

Good Luck

Keeps missing and sputtering,while riding i have to constantly adjust the enrichener

It sounds like you've got a clogged jet. It time to take the carb off, completely disassemble it, and clean every passageway in it.

You might have a vacuum leak as well. There is a vacuum line that supplies vacuum to the VOES switch, It comes off the backside of the carb, Make sure this hose is on the nipple and is not cracked anywhere. You could also have a vacuum leak at either the intake to head connections or in the carb to intake seal.

Good Luck

Sounds like you've got a vacuum leak somewhere. Either your intake seals or the carb seal is leaking air. Have you replaced the air filter housing? On the Evolution and later engines, the carb is designed as a "spigot seal" type carb. In other words, it just pushes into a seal instead of bolting on like the older carbs did. This means that the carb has to be aligned correctly or an air leak can occur around the seal. The air filter assembly is what holds the carb. into the seal and aligns the carb.

If you haven't messed with the air filter assembly there is one other thing that I've seen cause this problem. Your bike has two vacuum operated devices on it. One is the VOES switch and the other is the fuel petcock. The VOES switch is part of th igniton system and the petcock is the fuel valve on the fuel tank. The vacuum comes from either the carb or the intake manifold and is routed to the devices by a vacuum hose. Make sure this hose in connected to all three locations and has no holes in it. The vacuum hose to the petcock is on the backside of the petcock and the VOES is located on the bottom of the frame top tube under the fuel tank near the carb.

I have seen the vacuum operated petcock cause a vacuum leak in at least one occasion. Normally, when they go bad they just shut the fuel off to the carb and the engine won't run. But, I did have one that caused a severe vacuum leak and the bike acted exactly like you're describing. I took the petcock out of the tank. Drain the fuel first, not easy to do with the petcock being vacuum operated. I got a large funnel and held it under the petcock while I slowly unscrewed it. Once you have the petcock out, you'll see four small screws on the back side of it where the vacuum hose connects. Remove the screws and check the diagraphm behind the plate. Be careful, there is a small spring behind the plate. Take the petcock apart carefully so you can remember how to properly reassemble it.

Personally, I would eliminate the vacuum operated petcock and replace it with a high quality manual operated petcock. Like I said earlier, if they malfunction they usually shut the fuel off to the engine. There you are, a full tank of fuel but none to the engine. I'd replace it with an original Harley unit for a 1995 or earlier bike or a high quality aftermarket unit like a Pingle.

You need to find this problem before you ride the bike too much. The lean mixture resulting from a vacuum leak will cause the engine to run very hot.

There is a nipple on the back side of my carb and i cant seem to find where the other end of the hose hooks too?

The hose goes to the VOES (vacuum operated electric switch) and the petcock if you have a carburated engine. The purpose of the VOES is to ****** the timing on your engine. Let me explain.

When you're cruising down the road with no heavy load, the electronic ignition unit will allow the ignition timing to go above 35° total. It does this to get higher fuel economy and lower emissions. When cruising, the throttle is not very wide open and the manifold vacuum is high.

But, the moment you accelerate, you open the throttle wider and the manifold vacuum drops. When this happens, the VOES changes state. causing the electronic ignition to ****** the timing back to where it should be. The reason you want to ****** the timing when accelerating is to prevent spark knock or pinging.

So, some will say that the VOES advances the timing when the vacuum is high. Others will say it retards the timing when the vacuum goes low. You choose what you think it does.
