I am finally putting the carbs back on the bike and my antisipation grows having never heard this bike run before. As I do my best to shove the intakes back on I wonder if I have pushed them on enough. The little tit that the rubber piece goes over is still showing by maybe half and I wonder if I am in all the way. If not is there some trick I,m missing. Are these manifolds on as far as they are supposed to go on or should all of that metal tit be inside of the rubber part of the manifold.

Let's call it a lip, shall we? We all love **** on here but not everybody talks about it :ROFL:



There should be a small cut-out in the rubber of the manifold. That has to correspond the the "lip" on the carb body. If it doesn't, you push all you want, you won't get the manifold on.



It helps to put asmeer of vaseline on the inside of the rubber (I'm still talking about the manifold, BTW).

NO they are not on all the way the lip/tit should be out of sight.

Thanks RB. That means that these manifolds have to bepushed on by at least another 1/8 inch or so.
