Bottom hose out of carb cb 100 1970 goes where

The hose on the bottom of the carb is just a drain hose. It connects to the bottom of the carb and nowhere else.

Honda 1972 CL175 gas pours out the drain hose

The float in the float bowl is stuck open. It could be a bit of trash from the gas tank stopping the float needle from sealing shut. Remove the float bowl and gently lift the float up and down while spraying carb cleaner at the float needle. Install an in-line fuel filter to stop the problem in the future.

I have a 1970 honda trail 90, it has spark and plug gets wet when i kick it over. but it wont start!! It sometimes will make a back fire noise, when trying to start it

Remove the points cover. Make a scratch mark with a pin or nail across join of points backing plate and the outer housing and loosen two screws holding the backing plate for the point breaker just enough to rotate the plate 1mm anti-clockwise. Tighten retaining screws. Try starting now. If no joy, repeat procedure moving clockwise 1mm forward of the mark. This can be achieved with the slot end of a screwdriver between the two lugs on plate. Cheers.

Just got a 70honda cb 100 has no spark been

make sure kill switch is not killing spark even in the run position. Chech all fuses (test them) make sure power to and from coil is there. the CDI is not repairable but could need replacing.(not sure if the cb 100 has this with points) is the condenser good? if it is it can be charged and discharged with a mulitmeter.(use ohms resistance to charge it and volts dc to read as it discharges CAREFUL it can BITE)

It seems doggish when you try to give it gas after shifting to second and third is my floating opening to much

Are you saying it pulls strong when in 1st gear but doggish on 2nd and 3rd?
If yes, check your carb jets.

Hi (.honda cb 400-4) float posts damaged on original replacements stripped & cleaned out i also fitted new jets adjusted float 21mm or 22mm (miss informed by a haynes manual).valve...

Were the jets the same size? Just because the numbers were the same does not assure you that someone has not used a jet drill to enlarge them. Pull the low speed jets and compare them with the old ones, using a wire gauge or set of number drills.
