Fantastic progress in a short amount of time Westgl.
I think you'll be as pleased once on the road as you are thus far.
Tuning is key to optimum performance. Once dialed-in you may forget about ever finishing that choke. A couple pumps of throttle to start it and a throttle lock is all I've ever needed on the coldest of days.
Rob and you moved quick on getting to this point. Impressive.
Lets not forget Bob. It was he who put Tom in our sights.

I went out last night 9:30p.m. checked for any leaks.

There were No leaks

I wanted to do a single Carb conversion cause my bike had hydro locked at least 4 times, previously,

So I felt i could not trust this bike, to take me anywhere and bring me home reliably.

True, it is my fault for not closing the fuel tank shut off valve.

But so far i have forgotten to do it at least 4 times

So for now at least No fuel leaking.

Before Fuel would leak on top of the engine and a big puddle of fuel under the bike.

Started the bike last night 9:30p.m. from a cold start.

Started Instantly!!

Held throttle open about 1500rpm for less than 15 seconds, that was all it needed.

From there I felt i could have ridden it.

That accelerator pump really does help a lot

I wonder? how the 32DFT weber carb would work as a Single carb. conversion,

for a GL1500?

Stock GL1500 is two cv33 mm carbs.

I have a GL1500 trike, that may get a new induction conversion, probably have to re-jet the carb. though.

A really simple Manifold, (Much easier to do, than the GL1100 manifold) can be made to fit the GL1500. __________________

Hey CM85

Would you happen to know,

What all of the jet sizes and emulsion tubes sizes are in this 32DFT carb?

Thanks

I have a laser digital thermometer, just point the laser at anything and read it temperature.

After warm up, Started the bike and took some temp readings, while engine was running.

All cylinders are within 1-2 degrees of each other, so i think that the engine is running very well.

I also used this thermometer to check the center manifold, if it does ice or freeze, i can take a temp. very quickly.

I took temp.'s at the Oem intake manifolds, Heads, and cyl top of engine, VW manifold, after bike was up to temp.

Surprising the Temp issue of Icing or freezing did not seem to be a problem, The VW plenum was at 103 degrees, if the fuel was freezing, i would think the VW Manifold would have been much colder.

I did for now anyway, remove the Cover behind the radiator, this allows more radiator heat to get back to the VW manifold and the Carb., and provide heated air to the carb intake while running, this may be a big help.

Unless Tom has changed anything (I don't think he has), the carb should be factory jetted.

Pic below is from the Ford manual specific to the carburetor.

Thanks CM85,

Update: they are calling it a well tube, instead of a emulsion tube

Would it be the jetting for the Manual trans in our carbs?

I dont see emulsion tube size listed there, any idea what that would be?

Auto or Manual I don't know. Tom should've left the Ford tag on the carbs body to identify it?

Emulsion tubes in Ford terminology are the Well tubes.

The figures on the charts top horizontal line would be the same vertically for the other carbs unless a different figure appears.

Otherwise, I believe the model differences are in tuning.
