Carb vent pipe and fuel joints

Postby Hutch1 » Fri Sep 29, 2017 5:25 pm

After a short break while waiting for parts, I hit a snag in rebuilding my carbs. The vent pipe and and rubber hose on the fuel joint between carbs 2 & 3 are dry rotted. Can anyone point me in the right direction for an alternative. With 35+ year old bikes I would think this is a common problem.

I go to a local auto parts store and get the appropriate size fuel line. They sell it in bulk. Even Lowes and Home Depot usually have it.

One of the things you have circled is the brass pipe that the fuel line from the gas tank connects to. Is this what you meant to circle? It's not rubber.

I was hoping that was the case, but wanted to confirm with the more knowledgeable folks on the forum. I wasn't clear on my original post, I mean the rubber tub that attached to the long end of the brass fitting.

Yep. Definitely run of the mill fuel line.
