Number 4 carb was leaking. I pulled the carb and used a turkey baster to pressurize the system (good suggestion from another thread). There is a leak at the large fuel joint pipe on #4 carb. What is my next step Learned Gentlemen?

Still trying to avoid making a parts bike.

I want to thank BobinAZ for an assist in getting the carb unleashed from the beast. I was getting quite frustrated.

Final Judgement

I am not sure what exactly you are talking about?? The carb is fed fuel from the plenum through a surface mating passage.

I believe there are o-rings on each end of the fuel pipes that join the carbs. I had to replace them on my CB750 and I think this is similar.

There are two pipes that go between #2 and #4 carb, one thin (about the size of a ball point pin ink tube) and one that is about1/4 or 3/8 inch. The large one leaks right where it enters #4 carb. My manual doesn't show how it connects so I don't know if there are O-rings or what to seal it.

Sorry I am not very clear about it, but my guess is you guys have had these carbs open before and can tell me what to look for.

Thanks,

Final Judgement

The large one is your fuel tube and if you split the carbs, the tube just pulls out and you will see the o-rings.

While you are in there, carbs split look at the air cut off diaphragm..they are hard to get to w/o splitting the carbs and might be worth replacing since you are there already..of course there is always if it ain't broke don't mess with it..too!!!
