New In Texas
« on: Nov 21, 2017, 08:19:35 »
New member here in DFW. Just recently got my 1st real bike- a 78 CB750f.

Have already replaced the missing stator, exciter coil, stator cover, mechanical advance, points plate, points, condensors..... Got it up and running enough to realize what God-awful shape the carbs were in. Rebuilding those now...

Welcome to the fold.  I wish those carbs were a little easier to sort out.  That accelerator pump circuit is key.

Thanks.

Luckily a previous owner already swapped them out for round tops.

Thanks for the warm welcomes.

got the carbs torn down and realized the reason for the piss-poor running. The boss for the main jet on the left carb had been over-torqued and cracked. A chunk with half of the threads fell off when I was taking the emulsion tube out.

Found a good price on a replacement on Ebay, waiting for that to arrive this weekend.
