Is this particular carb worth rebuilding tho?

except for the missing chokes, yes.

i dont have em, but its never cold enough to worry about.

 

it sounds like the fuel system needs a thorough cleaning/replacing.


"I can spend time working on the Dattos, or wasting money at the strip club. You make the call." :D


I'll put on chain mail and a dirt bike tire jock strap and drive it!!!!!

So my fuel pump seems to be working! I had a water bottle of gas post filter/pre pump and a coffee can post pump/ pre carb and it ran it through! So my problem is somewhere before the fuel filter.

So Ratsun I ask you this, what would be the best and easiest way to clean out the lines? I'm assuming I should drain the tank as well. Is there a drain plug?

 

Cheers

If the tank was full of gas when it was moth balled, chances are you have issues in the lines and probably varnished up gas in the tank. How long was it sitting? There is a drain plug on the bottom of the gas tank with a hole below it(from below the trunk) that you can drain out the old stuff with. If it's been long enough, you may, unfortunately, have to remove the fuel tank and clean it out with a pressure washer, hot tank, etc.. Luckily, the fuel tanks are easily removed.

 

Congrats on the great find, by the way. Please do not dye the brown interior; it's probably my favorite, and yours is pristine.

Was it (hopefully) drained out before sitting?

Old gas smells putrid and sweet, like varnish. Drain it out. Like I said, there's an access hole underneath the trunk that allows you to get at the drain plug on the fuel tank. Get yourself a large container and drop that junk out. And BE CAREFUL! It may be old, but it's still EXTREMELY flammable!

Yes. I'd probably go a step further and pump something like acetone or mineral spirits through the lines until it runs clear.

If the gas looks absolutely horrid and crunchy, you may want to remove the tank after draining it. Then fill it full of gravel, nuts/bolts, or a piece of chain to help knock out all the rust and corrosion. Then coat the inside to seal it back up.

I'm not sure how long the gas tank in mine had been sitting(15-20yrs, I believe), but after the syrup was done draining, the tank was still heavy. I pulled it out and opened it up. After a good pressure washing, there were solid chunks the size of golf balls sitting around. I was amazed at what was in there.

Pump works great, just no gas entering the carb... I'm assuming the jets are plugged. Time to order a rebuild kit!

Well, if it's not entering the carb, then it may be a stuck needle. The jets are inside the carb, and simply regulate the amount of fuel that enters the intake. Either way, if the carb has been sitting for 10+ years, a rebuild isn't a bad idea.

 

A thought just occurred to me; if there was no fuel filter, some old junk from the tank/fuel line may very well have been sucked into the needle and seat and is plugging it. Check that out.

Like micro suggested I'm going to rebuild the carb, I pulled it off and the gaskets are pretty gross. I'm having a hard time finding a rebuild kit for the 32/36 DGV... I've asked a bunch of local places and have came up with nothing, and I really don't want to order off ebay. Anyone know where I can get one?

 

Cheers
