If your not having fun, your not wheeling with the right people ..
I just got orders to base Boston so I will be back home wheeling next summer .. (those that don't know I am overseas on deployment)
Try to take a step away for a while. Stop trying so hard to make a buggy over night and try to just have a good time.
I don't always hit the hardest trails or go with the wildest people I just go out to be with the people I am with.
Just a thought but i was really looking forward to wheeling with the tin can

Trailer is getting another tire tomorrow. Saturday it will be on the trails. Open to offers.
|08-28-2014 06:05 PM|
|08-28-2014 05:52 PM|
new fuel tanks
Current inspection sticker
Six point harnesses
Harley CV Carb
Could use new deck
Just put a new tire and rim on it today
It all goes. Package deal. Haven't come up with a price, but feel free to give offers. Everything runs and drives. Buy it all now and you can wheel it. Its all fueled up and ready to go. This will get you into some of the hardest trails in New England and built enough to compete at places like Vermonster. Both the truck and samurai have been great rigs, I'm just getting burnt out of the whole sport.
I have YouTube videos uploading now for more details. I'll post those once done uploading. CL ad will follow.

You do have an air filter on it this time, right?

|JM93LiftedYJ||Tin Can now has a fully operational Harley CV carb. At 4000RPM, in 4LO, first gear, I drop the clutch and the front end takes off. What a HUGE difference. It idles a little rough. No worse than before though. But holy shit this thing takes right off. Made a few mistakes on the way, but she runs great. Interested to see how it does on the trails and hill climbs now. I'll have to get a video of how everything looks.|

|JM93LiftedYJ||I think this will work after work today. I kinda...made an oops on the carb install. The reason the fuel was everywhere was because, well, sometimes it helps if the carb isn't backwards.|

Fuel pump gremlin spits into internal fuel pressure regulator.
Internal fuel pressure regulator gremlin spits into pump outlet to the carb until it hits 7 PSI or so. Whatever extra beyond that goes into the return line.
I tried to make the explanation funny, but I'm not tired enough to laugh at even my own joke. Huh.
So the pump pumps fuel and the carb just takes what it needs off of the regulated low pressure feed line. The rest of the pump's flow returns to the tank.
|07-10-2014 10:39 AM|
Well, there is a return line on the pump. Not sure how it works on the stock system, but does the return line take affect before the fuel is pumped to the carb? As in the fuel enters the pump, detects that the carb is full, and sends it back to the tank? Or does the fuel have to travel through the carb, detect the fuel bowl is full, then it sends it back to the tank? Not sure if any of that makes sense.
I read I could install a Jeep filter (http://www.amazon.com/FRAM-G3583-In-.../dp/B000AMW0F6) between the carb and the pump. Perhaps thats another option?
I bought like 30 of those rubber boots for the vacuum lines today. When I get out of work I'll start blocking off ports and see if I've missed something.

The needle and seat should stop the flow, and the pump might have a regulator in it.
|07-10-2014 06:52 AM|
I would get some gasket material and make gaskets for the places you used RTV, as it does not hold up to gas well.
IIRC those carbs need a pressure regulator if you retained the sami fuel pump.
|07-10-2014 05:25 AM|
I figured out the mounting. It actually didn't come out that bad. The only oops I had was boring the hole too large. I took some 20ga and made up a little restrictor plate thing. Worked great. I also used hi temp RTV on everything.
I just can't seem to get by the fact of having no return line for the fuel. When the fuel bowl fills up, won't the pump keep pumping fuel?
|07-09-2014 09:29 PM|
Take a piece of paper and trace the intake pattern, then transfer to steel plate. Then take old carb and center punch the 4 holes for the studs. That should get you close. Make sure you gasket it. You don't want air leakage. You're gonna suck all sorts of crud into the engine, plus lean isn't good either!
|07-09-2014 07:53 PM|
So the Harley carb is mounted. I made a dumbass mistake and on the bottom adapter I drilled the hole way too big. It wasn't until I fire the rig up that the engine went full bore. Looked under the intake, and there was the 1/2" gap letting air straight in. Quick solution, make a restrictor plate. Did that and, well, it solved the motor running full bore. But, the engine only runs, and barely runs at that, with the throttle wide open and on full choke. It just seems like the motor is getting way too much fuel. Its seeping right out of the fuel bowl. Its everywhere. When I flick the throttle, fuel squirts right out of the intake.
Now, I've blocked off every vacuum line by using rubber tubing with small bolts threaded into them. Tomorrow I'll go to the hardware store and get a pile of those little rubber boot things.
So yea, the Harley carb only has the fuel in line right? There is a port on the top of the carb my buddy said to block off; which I did. Just seems like there is way too much fuel. Tomorrow I'll see if I can get a friend or two over to see about tuning a couple things. But its almost there. Just need to work out a few bugs is all.

Picked up a Harley 40mm 88 Twin CV carb today for $40. Now how to get that thing installed....
On the other hand there is this option...
|07-03-2014 09:01 PM|
Dave posted our last trip:
As for the Tin Can, still scoping out a 40mm CV carb if anyone knows someone with one. Thanks.
Ooh. Found one on CL. 1h away. $100 OBO for carb and intake. Schweet.
|07-01-2014 09:20 PM|
It's a carbatooter, grab a rochester 2 jet at a swap meet. Used to be all kinds of junk people'd do to them. One guy even bored them out and fitted huge butterflies in them.
Or well, just about anything of proper size and of a brand name you know there'll be parts for. If you're like me you'll find something for $10.
Autolites off fords are good ones, too, but they've got funky rubber power valves that are a big negative.
|07-01-2014 06:31 PM|
|dropitlow88||look into the toyota carb swap, cant remember the details but its out there|
|07-01-2014 05:33 PM|
Lately been having some fuel issues. If its been sitting over night, it will run for about a minute. Then it'd die out. Almost like the fuel bowl was taking its sweet time filling up. Pulled the entire carb off the intake tonight with the help of Dad and my friend Tim.
What in the hell was Suzuki thinking. There's eleven types of whattafucks going on with that carb. I eventually did get most of it apart. I split the carb and I'm going to need a new gasket. Tried taking the jets out, but I only managed to get one apart. The others were not having it. The one I did take out look brand new though. One of the parts needs a new o-ring too.
After a bit of head and ass scratching, it'd be simpler to just toss the emissions bullshit and go straight for a new carb. It'll help get rid of all the unnecessary vacuum lines and clean things up a bit. I'm going to scope out a 40mm CV carb. Tim texted a couple friends to see if there were any out there. By this weekend if I don't hear anything, I'll put a few wanted ads up for one. Like to stay under $100. Another friend is pickup up some of my spare zuk parts and in turn will help me tune/install the carb; he runs one and it runs perfect.
That's where I am today though. Good times.

Took the girlfriend out for a quick spin today. Had her drive too. She did well. Stalled once on the first take off, but didn't do bad afterwards. If I remember, I'll upload the videos before I go to bed.

|Hyde802||I passed you in down town Wolfeboro today. I was on a bike, gave you a thumbs up, Tin Can looks good!|
|06-13-2014 07:23 PM|
|JM93LiftedYJ||Wasn't there this time. Last year he was. Its in Freedom. Dave would be interested in getting some "Peach Pit" type rigs there to check things out. Can always use some extra help clearing some trails.|
|06-13-2014 07:18 PM|
|Hvy_Chevy||TJ was there? what town?|
