Thanks for the reply,
Yes, using the method of tilting the carbs until the tang just touches the needle i was ending up with the fuel level sitting about 3mm above the gasket.
I figured that was way too much fuel to have in the carbs so was thinking having the fuel level sitting level with the...
Hi, sorry for yet another Carburetor question,
I have a Honda CJ360T and i was looking at setting the floats using the clear tube method as i am having a few issues trying to do it by sitting the carb at an angle and setting it that way.
So with the clear tube method, where should i be looking...
Yes it starts cold with no choke, takes a few kicks though to get to that stage.
I read somewhere that it should fire up without choke, sounds a tad odd, but that is what i have been doing.
The insulators are all brand new, ( the two rubber boots from the engine to the carburetors )
I did use...
Hi, I am just looking for any more suggestions on might be going wrong here.
I have got the carbs all back together with brand new factory needle and seats.
Set floats to 20mm, air fuel mixtures 2 turns out, bench synced both carbs to around .35mm
Started up ok after a few kicks from cold and...
Thanks heaps for those two links, a lot of great detailed information in there.
Looks like i have a few things to check, first is those wish bone springs, I didn't even realize or notice that they have a slight curve to them, so i have a 50 / 50 chance that i either got them installed...
Thanks again for the replies and video.
Yes i am using the stock air filters and box, nothing has been modified.
I have a brand new old stock needle and sets coming as i think on my original one the springs are a tad weak as they aren't as springy as the one in the video.
I did have a full set...
Not a bad idea there, i have a few cans of carb cleaner on the shelf, will give that a try.
Now just have to find what the correct fuel level height with the clear tube is and i should be half way there.
I am thinking about getting some sort of sealant to put on those rubber boots that go to the carburetor, sealant on both the motor side and carburetor side, just to make 100% sure they are sealed, they are new boots and i am using hose clamps on them rather than the clamps that it originally...
Hi, Sorry for bringing up an old post that i started a few months ago.
Bike has been in storage for a while as i haven't had the chance to get back to working on it.
I was interested to know if there is a better way to check float height, I have been playing around with a carburetor gauge to...
Thanks for the information there,
I like the idea of the clear fuel tubing setup, might give that a try and see where the fuel is sitting.
I was searing around for information on the right size guitar string,
Thanks for the reply.
No miles on it yet since the rebuild, maybe 1 mile at the most to adjust some carburetor settings that is about all.
Yes everything was lapped in correctly, good cross hatch in the bores with new standard size rings as the others weren't worn much at all.
Hi, I am in the process of doing a full motor rebuild on a 1976 CJ360T, actually the rebuild is complete just a few niggly things that i am trying to sort through.
When the motor is up to operating temperature, i am getting a lot of oil smoke i guess is the best way to explain it coming from...
Yes, i replaced them with brand new ones.
The bike was running ok about a week ago apart from some hot starting/ running issues.
I disassembled the carburetors and re adjusted the floats to 20mm thinking i was getting too much fuel and while i was there i took out the air/ fuel needles and put...
I got the bike up and running, fired up on the first kick.
Only issue that i have is that the motors revs stay high for a while before they drop.
So, if i rev it to around 3k, it will stay there for a while before it drops back down.
Carburetor linkage is not sticking, i can see that it is...
Thanks for that link, appreciated.
Reads like it is mainly a write up for the tuning side f things once everything is installed, but a very good write up.
Just there are two important things that are not mentioned that i can see.
1. What height to set the floats at?
2. What setting the...
I forgot to add,
The only numbers i can find for the jest are:
35 slow jet
686 main jet.
I think these are fairly standard,
But having a few issues trying to identify what they call the Main secondary, the Air jet with primary and secondary jets.
Just so i can get some numbers...
Hi, This is my first time posting here, so sorry if i have got this post in the wrong section here.
So i have a 1976 Honda CJ360T i am trying to get up and running.
I have has the carburetor apart and gone through putting new seals through everything.
The model of carburetor is a Keihin 759A...
