    you can just take the stuff out of your car and put in a pile on the grass, no one will take it. Its common for lots of people to do this as they drive down in a single car with spares like you

    Is an air leak a common failure? How does it happen? Air somehow bypassing the carb? Broken inlet manifold?

    Bike carbs sizing

    felt pretty good passing 4ages with my 50 year old engine with bike carbs TBH
  8. internet old wives tales? Whats that thing, it takes 10 times more energy to disprove something stupid than it is to say something stupid, or something like that. Thats why all this fake news stuff is taking over the world.

    there are heaps of small things that need to be altered on bike carbs, I think lots of people who have trouble with them only change main jet sizes. Car engines work a bunch differently to bike engines, mostly with how fast they accelerate rpm's so they need to be altered to suit
  10. thats whack how fast this thing go now? its 70cc?

    You should put the injector he other way and run the carb in the backwards position just for lols

    I ran no filter for years, then put some of those sock filters with springs inside on and I didn't notice any difference, I got the biggest/fanciest ones I could find though because I heard it may be a problem. Interestingly when engine was pulled down because I wanted to put a bigger cam in it, there was no indication of debris getting inside the engine/any damage after several years of running with zero care about dust

    The vacuum doesn't work well at lower rpm, it makes the vac advance on the distributor pulse and sound like a noisy tappet, but after 2000rpm it either pulses fast enough or you dont hear it over engine noise. Not sure how it would work on the brake booster, but I imagine it would just take a while to replenish vacuum after pushing in the pedal with low rpm's but be fine at driving speeds My setup was R1 carbs on 1800 crossflow motor. had a non-returning fuel pressure reg, malpassi something with a lift pump. Rot808's car has the standard mech pump on it I think. Just need to check for your setup. If they are CV carbs then you should make sure that the vented tubes on top of the CV diaphragms are blocked off or connected to each other. Bike engines can change RPM way faster than car motors so can cause some trouble if you slam the throttle. Also makes a funny flutter noise on accel not blocked off
