Quick question, would the vacuum line from the #4 carb attach to the vacuum advance unit on the 82 PG? And if that wasn't attached could that be the reason why my bowls aren't filling? I thought I had read that the vacuum line was only for increased flow in 4th and 5th gear.

Nope.... Are you sure the screens are not gunked up. Pilot screws have nothing to do with gas delivery to the bowl.

It seems like something may have freed up in the fuel tubes from the WD 40 and or the carb cleaner while the carbs sat near my bedside last night. Now I'm able to blow into both sides of the fuel lines, with about similar resistance from both. if any gunk was cleared out I'm hoping i can find it in these screens.

I pulled all the bowls again, pulled all the screens from under the float valves and cleaned them again, checked all the slides, which were moving just fine.

I hooked the gas tank up to the carbs while they were out of the engine just to see if I could flood them. I let the fuel pump run for a good while and never saw any gas pouring from the carbs anywhere even when I opened the throttle. Im not sure If i would've been able to see gas spilling out after the bowls had filled up, so I flipped the carbs, one side over the other, and saw gas pouring out from both sides.

I know this is poor way of figuring this out, but it seemed as if all the bowls were filling up. Your thoughts?

The carbs have vents which allow fuel out when tipped over. If you had the tank hooked up and the carbs on the floor, you will be close to good. Recommended bench test is about a litre of fuel held six feet above the carbs to simulate actual pressure. One problem I have encountered when inverting the carb rack(rather than draining through the drain screws) is gunk being carried up into the air jets and the slides.

Thanks for the heads up on that!

I put the carbs in and gave it a go. Its very close to starting it seems like. If you don't mind, give it a listen and let me know what you think.

Ok I took a little break from the goldwing to pick up a 1990 Suzuki Katana 750 out in Chicago. Guy wanted 300$ and said it wouldn't start! Ha, just needed a carb clean and a new battery.

So i drove that back home to Colorado and now I'm back to the Goldwing. I ditched my old fuel pump setup for an 84 fuel pump from a member on NGW which just arrived today. So I'm curious, any good ideas on where to wire the fuel pump into the 82 wiring harness?

So i tried to get her running with the 84 pump, which was working just fine, and it seems so close to turning over but just won't. I played with the idle adjuster and went all the way from 0 turns out to almost 7 turns out! I checked the manual and didn't see a specific setting for how many turns out it should be. Im wondering if the carbs were out of sync if that could prevent the engine from running. All the stuff I saw on syncing carbs, did so while the engine was running.
