Post Carb cleaning walk through? Reply with quote
I've decided to bite the bullet, and in the morning pull my carb and give it a much-needed cleaning.

Anyone point me to what I need to know to attempt this intimidating bit of DIY?

Before I begin, I'm going to label all the hoses and then take a picture of the thing so I can reference where everything hooks back up.

I would also be interested in this, if anyone has a picture walk through or would be willing to make one.

Gente,

I'm filming this weekend and will be around and can send a pic if needed.

As Baily says, label the hoses is a good idea. More important than that is to make a permanent mark (or wind some tape) around the gas line where it goes thru the frame BEFORE you move it. That way you can return it to its current position and assure yourself you haven't kinked it at the petcock.

Make sure the petcock is OFF before you start. You will drain gas from the gas line, and the float bowl is full of fuel which you need to drain. Get a bowl or something, and you can use it to keep the jets, float, hinge pin, and float needle organized.

There are O-rings on each of the black gaskets. One between carb and intake manifold, and one attaching float bowl to carb. Don't loose them either.

Treat it gently as jets and the throttle needle are brass, easy to bend and scratch. No wire brushes, clean/wipe with soft cloth, etc.

Normally things are good inside the carb despite what most may think. I try to keep the carb upright as possible when removing, so that I don't pour out all the gas in the float bowl. I like to keep it full so I can see how much debris is in the bottom of the bowl. Normally just a bit of black specks which is nothing to worry about.

Wanted to add to this thread.
I took my carb apart, cleaned, replaced. Still had the same issues (wouldn't idle, bogged at high rpms), for some reason, I pulled off the fuel line. Just a trickle was coming out. I massaged the fuel hose and a clump of goo came out. The gas was then free flowing. Of course I blew threw the line back into the tank to make sure it was clear.

I searched and searched trying to figure out what was wrong, but didn't see the clogged fuel line issue . May want to try that before rebuilding the carb

Now my Chetak runs just like it should Very Happy
