HELLO; Thats one of the vent tubes,and yes it needs a hose, then run it up to the rubber flap around the air filter intake. There should be a hole to run it through so it can vent. GOOD LUCK.

Little brass piece with the hole in it and the o ring fell out when I took the bowl off my 17.5briggs. I must have put it back in the wrong place when it back together. Does anyone know where it goes?

Is it a Nikki carb? The little brass piece is the main jet and goes in the long tube in the center of the plastic piece that holds the float and float needle. It is inserted from bottom side and seats in the top of the tube.

1994 softail springer with harley carburator. fuel fitting on carb that was there had a plastic clip and small line going to hose. This hose broke and I was given a different fitting. This fitting presses...

The original fuel line fitting on the Keihen carb is a pressed in fitting made of brass and plastic. The plastic piece breaks off leaving the brass nipple in the carb. Harley makes a replacement fitting as well as the aftermarket parts suppliers. The Harley replacement is better because it's made completely of brass where the aftermarket replacements are made of brass and plastic like the original. To get the old fitting out, thread it with 1/4 X 20 tap and use a bolt, washer, and a deep well socket as a "puller" to get the old fitting out. To press the new fitting in, lubricate the fitting and the hole in the carb and use a vise to press the fitting in. Be sure to position the fitting correctly so that the fuel hose goes on in the right direction. I'm sorry but I don't have the part number handy. Your local dealer can look up the number easily.

Good Luck

How to drain gas from colemen 6250 gen. is there a drain or do i have to remove gas tank.

Just pull the gas line off of the carb. If the end of the hose is difficult to access, you can cut the hose, then put it back together with a brass hose barb. To be sure of the size, you can cut of a very short piece of the hose. I've been looking for a drain valve that could be installed instead of a hose barb myself. I don't know why these medium sized generators don't come with them.

Fuel inlet ''L'' replacement

The black plastic and brass fuel inlet is replaceable. If all the plastic is not broken off, break it all off. Now, use a tap to tap the inside of the brass piece, tap it to 1/4" X 20 standard threads. Once tapped, find a long bolt with the same threads, a washer, and a deep well socket that will just fit over the brass piece. Put the socket over the tapped brass piece and start the bolt with the washer on it in through the socket. Tighen the bolt and the brass piece just pulls right out. It's simply pressed into the carb.
Now to replace it. You'll need either of the following parts from V-Twin mfg co. 40-0534, 35-0134, or 35-0513. Put a lube on the new part and using a vise, press the new part into the carb, Don't try to press it any deeper than the original or you'll bust the new one. I usually take a piece of fine emery paper and work the brass on the new one down just a bit making it maybe a thousandth of an inch smaller. I use Sunnen press lube to lube the new part but I guess any good oil or STP would work. Make sure you've got the new part positioned correctly before you press it in. Good Luck.

When I start my 1998 honda xr80r it revs to near full throttle, the throttle is not stuck in anyway I think it's the carb has a brand new carb maybe i did something wrong in the instillation

it sounds to me like the throttle slide has been installed incorrectly,unscrew the throttle housing off the top of the carb(it looks like a cap and the throttle cable goes through it)remove the throttle slide from the housing,down one side of the throttle slide there is a piece cut out that goes the whole length of the slide (lookes like a groove),inside the carb body there is a small brass knob,this groove or cutout goes over the knob and it stops the throotle slide from rotating,once you have installed the slide back in the carb the slide should drop right to the bottom of the housing,you can check this by looking through the rear of the carb and you should be able to see the bottom of the throttle slide,if the slide is installed incorectly the little brass knob stops the throttle slide dropping to the bottom of the housing and will give full throttle,its an easy fix and wont take more than 10mins to repair,hope this helps

This is no joke, I can,t fine where my thermostat is in my 1997 merc sable, ,i even followed the top hose back to the engine block

if you follow the "upper" radiator hose from the radiator to the engine it should have a metal piece that bolts to the car ( usually with only 2 bolts) and also the hose is clamped to it. it most likely has a domed shape to an elbow looking piece. take the "upper " radiator hose from where it connects to the engine. remove the bolts that hold this metal piece to the engine that you just took the hose off of. the thermostat "should" be located under this piece. you must take that metal elbow thing off from car to access the thermostat. where it bolts to the engine it most likely will have only 2 bolts and where that connects to the engine will be a gasket and it will be kinda football shaped. a lot of cars will also have a brass flat screw on top of this domed shaped elbow. that will be the give away to that that is where it is. what you do is when the car is running and the coolant starts to get warm, you back out the brass screw a little. this will let the air escape thats trapped and when coolant starts to escape tighten the screw back down. now you have the air out of the system after youve replaced the thermostat. I hope this helps....

No water comes out of the wand

First, you must be sitting on it before it will work. Their should be a separate valve for the bidet function, be sure it is turned on. Also check that the seat is installed properly and the quick release "snaps" into place. These are the most common problems if they don't fix it let me know.

From description looks like the leak in where the shorted hose had been connected, or the pipe has another leak.
Wrap the hose with a cloth, on the side where it goes inside the cabinet, so that you find out if the leak is coming from the inside or from the outside part.
Ensure that it is not coondensation.
