cb360 carb sync question... (crazypj?)
« on: Jul 26, 2017, 19:26:15 »
I have my synchronizer hooked up and both needles read nearly identical at idle... problem is its in the red zone that says "late valve timing or leak at intake manifold or heat riser".


I have heard this area only applies to cars and it doesn't really matter where the needles are as long as they read the same. any truth to this?
My carbs were rebuilt by crazypj so I know they're good. Air screws are out 1 1/2 turns and I've triple checked my timing...

Where the needles are at idle does matter. It should be around 17 inches of Hg.

You sure you have the gauge hooked up correctly? It's almost impossible to get a reading that low at idle. The bike wouldn't even run as there wouldn't be enough vacuum through the carbs to even draw fuel.

That's a stock photo off the interweb... mine actually reads somewhere around 6-8 in the vacuum red!!!! I'll get a pic/video of mine doing it in a minute...

Ok.. well, I can't figure out how to get the video of it so here's a still shot from the video. It idles around 2 to 3 in the vacuum and we'll go all the way down to 10 when I give it throttle.

It should be the opposite. Engines pull more vacuum at idle than they do with the throttle open.

Exactly my thoughts! So... Any idea what the hell is going on?
