Drain engine oil and remove carb's, check float height in each carb make sure all jets, transfer holes, needles and adjusters are not stuck/blocked/damaged or dirty. Keep the carb's off the inlet manifold and see if the fuel is still flowing from them. Fuel should not flow from a carb when the engine is not operating. Remember to replace oil and filter before restarting engine.

Harley davidson keihin carb


The float inside the carb is not set properly and is allowing too much fuel to enter the float bowl. The carb will have to be removed from the bike and the float bowl removed from the carb to fix the problem. I don't have the float measurements here at home, but they are listed in the service manual if you have one.

What type of keihin carburetor suits a FXST 1986-87


That year Softail came with the "butterfly type" Keihin carburetor. Refer to this site for a picture of the carb. http://www.bikebandit.com/1987-harley-davidson-fxst/o/m1504#sch173168 There are several versions of this carb that were used with the latest version being the best one. It had an additional mid-range fuel port in the venturi that solved a "dead spot" problem in the RPM range where most people normally ride. As best as I can remember, Harley went to the Keihin CV type carb in 1990.

If your bike does not have an carb on it at the time and you are not particularily wanting to restore the bike to exact original condition, I'd consider an S&S Super "E" Shorty carburetor. You can purchase the complete kit to change the carb from most aftermarket dealers and some H-D dealers. The original Keihin carb was not very popular with most riders and this is the carb that a lot of them chose to put on the engine in it's place. The newer Keihin CV carb was a much better carburetor and can be installed on the engine but it will require an intake manifold change as well. You may be able to locate one of these later carbs at a swap meet for a reasonable price.

Good Luck

I'm getting gas to the carberator, but not getting gas in the carb.


If you are getting fuel TO the carb but none IN the carb, your float is probably stuck. The float is supposed to lower in the float bowl when the fuel level is too low opening the needle and seat which allows fuel to fill the float bowl. On the original Keihin CV carb that is on your engine this is a very rare occurance. So rare in fact that I would suspect something other than what you have stated. I would check the vacuum operated petcock to make sure that fuel is flowing through it. Disconnect the fuel line at the carb and spin the engine over. If fuel flows freely from the hose, the petcock is working fine. If not, you need to remove the petcock from the tank and replace the vacuum diaphragm in the petcock. If you are getting a full fuel flow, I would suggest the you remove the carb from the engine and go though the carb completely. This is not a job for a beginner. There are particular setting involved in the carb when replacing the float needle that must be set in a certain way. It's best to have an experienced mechanic do this job.

I have a 2003 superglide and the carb keeps building up with fuel and runs really rich and u can smell fuel .. any help


It sounds like you have a bad needle in the carb allowing the float bowl to overfill. It depends on what type of carb is on the engine as well. If it's the original Keihin CV carb, you'll have to remove the carburetor from the engine and remove the float bowl, the float, and the needle. Replace the needle and reset the float height is necessary. There is a special way of setting the float height on this carb. It must be set with the carbuetor body positioned at an angle. If you'll contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net , I'll send you a picture of how to set the float level on the Keihin CV. If your bike has a different type of carburetor, let me know this and I'll try to help you with that as well. Don't forget to tell me what you need.

1970 shovelhead 1000 cc how do u adj.tihe carb ; i have cleaned out carb an now for some reson it's acting like it has jumped time an is flooding out why


The timing has not changed just because you cleaned the carb. If it's flooding, the needle and seat are not sealing like they should. If this is the case, you should be seeing fuel coming out of the overflow tube when the engine is not running or the fuel flowing into the carb. You didn't mention what type of carburetor you are running on the engine. The original Keihin carb is notorious for doing this. I've worked with them all day long trying to get one to quit flooding. It's as if when you clean the carb and take the float out, if you rotate the needle or something, it just will not seal. I've had to lower the float setting on many occasions to get it to stop. Do not lower the float setting over 1mm.(0.040") as you may start to starve the engine for fuel at highway speeds. If the carb is an S&S carb. Check the float setting with the bowl held upside down. It's shoudl be 1/8" into the bowl from the gasket surface. If it's a Bendix carb, you may not have the float spring in the carb correctly.

Good Luck

Need float specs fuel leeks out overflow on carb. hanging should it be right below the gasget at the toe or the seem?


I would suspect that your problem is something other than the float setting. If your carb has been running properly until recently, there may be trash in the needle and seat. Float settings don't just change by themselves. Once they're set, they stay that way until someone changes it. I'd be glad to send you the float settings but you didn't tell me what kind of carb you're running on the bike. Harley riders are noted for changing the type of carburetor they run on their bike. If you're running the stock Keihin carb, the float level has to be set with the carb on an angle. To illustrate this, I'd have to send you a picture. I'd be glad to do so if you're contact me directly as this forum only allows a file size of 150Kb or smaller. Contact me at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you a picture of how to set the float level of the Keihin CV. If you are running a different type of carb, let me know and I'll send you information on that one as well if I have it.

What is the float level setting on a hd keihin cv carb? HD stock #27421-99a


You'll have to contact me directly for that information. The reason is that the float level is not set in the more conventional manner like other carbs. The float level is set to0.413 - 0.453' from the "bottom" of the float to the lower face of the carb body with the carb tilted at an angle of 15 - 20°. A picture is worth a thousand words in this case. For a picture, contact me directly at wd4ity at bellsouth.net
