Sounds like you were adjusting the idle mix screw on the carburetor. I think has OEM parts, with diagrams. Also, there are many forums for different motorcycles and their owners on the internet, I would try a Google search for the right forum for your bike. Good Luck!

This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.

THis should solve the problem.

I cleaned the bottom bowls of the carb on my 78 650 and the first carb on the right hand side the gas is running out of the bottom nipple.

Hi, Jeremy and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

1985 honda goldwing 1200 oil seems to be leaking from timing belt cover thinking maybe crank shaft gasget?

Most likely it is a valve cover gasket. There is a cam seal underneath the cam belt timing gear that is easy to replace (I have replaced two of those when the same leak appeared.The seal is part #28. Worst case scenario the crankshaft seal has begun to leak. It is easily replaced once you have taken off the covers, belts, and center belt sprockets. The seal is part #13

How to hook up vacuum lines for holley 600 cfm

When attaching vacuum lines, you need to remember only one thing. Mark each hose when you remove it from the original carb (quadrajet?) Hoses that attach to the baseplate are at full vacuum and should be returned to a similar location or to the manifold, using a "tree". Hoses that are connected to the body of the original carb only see vacuum when the throttle is opened. Those can be attached to the fitting on the right side of the front metering block. Most Holley carbs have no provision for the valve located at the front of early Q jets (bowl purge) nor do they have any electrical connections except for the choke mechanism.
The most important vaccuum line is the one for your power brakes. Make sure that one is firmly connected either to the rear of the carb baseplate or the manifold. All other lines are nowhere as critical as that one is..

I need a diagram on fuel hose, I replace the hoses and forgot were it goes

If you have the saw I think you do, here is the deal. You have two hoses that go to the tank, one is a larger diameter than the other. The smaller diam. hose runs from the tank to the "inlet" side of the carburetor. (the fitting closest to the fuel pump cover, held on by one screw). This line rest in the bottom of the tank attached to a fuel filter. The larger diam. line attaches to the "tank" side of the primer or "outlet" side and sits in the tank about 1/4"-1/2", (there is generally a fitting on this end to prevent it from being pulled out of the hole). The third line, usually the same diam. as the fuel line, attaches to the primer "carb" fitting or "suction" side and attachs to the other fitting on the carb. Hope this helps.

Mountin carbs back on bike need diagram 2 see how it goes on 79 honda goldwing 1000

Not sure if this is what you want.
If the carb rack is fully built up:
1) remove the air cutoff valve from behind the #1 carb. Be careful not to loose the two O rings.
2) remove the CV caps (and springs) from the two right hand carbs
3) the rack will now slide in from the left side. Re-fit the caps and the cut off valve once it's roughly in place and it's easier to attach the throttle cable at this point too.
4) Carefully fit the large O rings between the heads and the intake trumpets: It's very easy to have them fall down into the cylinder head ports!! Use some Vaseline on them if necessary to stick them in place (NOT GREASE!)
5) attach the choke cable and the fuel line to the fuel pump.
6) go over everything and check it. Make sure that the bands on the rubber inlet boots are tight.

1994 honda prelude cutting out when at standstill. (Automatic)

check the valve (tappets) clearances.. Gaps close up when warm, which could be leading to valves not closing. Exhaust 7-8 thou; inlet 6-7 thou. Could also be air measuring unit leaving the 'choke' on - 2 bolts on front of throttle body with wires and two small water hoses on it. Gauze soots up - spray liberally with carb cleaner. Faulty temperature sender could also cause this.
