    Hello why do you want to replace the carbs are they physically damaged? They can be cleaned /rebuilt

  • hvrenaissanc May 11, 2010

    Several of the "ears" mounting projections were broken in removal. The carbs had set for years and the dried out gas had become like sawdust. I am looking for ones which can be re-built - I can salvage maybe one of the 4

I need to replace the gas bubble on a McCulloch Power Mac model 600032-54.....32cc i don't want to break the plastic ring around the bottom that holds it.. Thanks

If its a remote primer, it is sold as an assembly and just clips into the tank, if it is on the carb itself it will be retained by the metering cove of the carb held with four screws.

My honda cbr 600 wont start and keeps backfireing

Check your plugs. If all four are sparking then your carbs are out of sync. They will need to be re-balanced.

If you are capabable in doing this job your self, you will need a screwdriver that fits your adjuster screws and a CarbTune Carb balancer.
Remove your tank and airbox.
You should see the flaps inside your carbs. These should open when you move your throttle.
Start on the outside carbs to get them balanced with the 2 centre ones.
To start, unscrew the adjusters all the way out. then screw them in until the 2 outer carbs move at the same time as the inner 2 carbs
Once this is done then adjust the centre balancer to syncronise the 2 left hand carbs to the 2 right hand carbs.
Now if you have done this correctly, all four carbs should open at the exact same time.
If you have a Carbtune balancer, remove the plugs from the top of your inlet manifold and plug in the hoses from the carbtune balancer.
Start the engine and adjust the screws until the weights inside the Carbtune balancer all read the same.
Once done, remove the balancer, replace the plugs into the inlet manifold, refit the airbox and tank and it should run so much better.

If your not 100% confident to unertake this job yourself, take the bike to your local dealer and ask to have the carbs balanced.

Runs rough and only on full choke

Did you relpace the inline fuel filter? they need replacing every year due to fuel addtive required by the feds. Try that first then the primer bulb check valve could have dirt in it with the air cleaner off look into the carb port and press the button three or four times, if you see no fuel then replace the filter first then pull the gas bulbp apart and clean.

As far as the breather to the top of the engine goes, just pull off the hose and replace it with a small breather filter and you are good to go. Sorry, but can't help with your vaccum diagram.

You have a timing problem. Check the timing first. If a simple adjustment doesn't fix the problem, check the plug wires. Make sure they are on the right plugs. If they are, your timing chain or belt jumped.

31cc ryobi weedeater wont start

I've had similar trouble. I removed the plastic cover to expose the fuel lines. I've had to replace all of them as each one had dry rotted, split or had holes. There are four runs of clear plastic fuel line. Check all your lines and then check for any of it being plugged up to the carberator. The primer bulb should develop some pressure when all is good.

Gas lines have fallen apart

Fuel line from tank to carb. is usually only four or five inches long. I recommend buying a foot of new line in different sizes. Carb. idle screws generally one in a half turns out for a good start position. May have to fine tune them a little bit more or less.
