Re: [T3] carb question


Hi guys. Thanks for the response. You mentioned the " Do you have the plastic piece that goes on to the float pivot pin.". Are you referring to the metal spring that holds the float in? Mine is a metal spring, not plastic. Also, I did not get new jets with this kit, at least I don't think so. I went to the CB Performance website and they show a rebuild kit with many more parts than the one I got which was from CIP. Maybe I should buy new kits from CB Performance.

I am still confused about why gas would flow up this channel other than if the bowl is overfilling. I note on the instructions that I have with my kit they show the float with a 45 degree kinnk in the float arm. Mine are straight. perhaps I need to bend it more. My Bentley Type 3 manual indicates that there were different settings for the float level, from 13 mm to 15 mm depending on the carb and the float valve. Maybe I need to measure this. Do you think that the main issue is that the bowl is overfilling and that is why fuel floats up this channel? Thanks for the time ...
