could anyone Help with a Dirtbike carb? its a Suzu

K guys, dont know how many of you have worked on dirtbike engines, but im guessing at Least One of the great BBs Contributors should be able to help, if not, any input would be great.

k, my dirtbike has been sittin a while, its a 2 stroke 1978 Pe175, suzuki of course, and i put gas in it today for the first time since the end or maybe earlier than the end of summer... so that would be my first guess as to why the HOSE from the bottom of the carb is leaking gas faster than what it goes into the carb. im guessin the hose is to float or whatever... but its going out, as fast as it goes in.

my guess is that the float valve is gummed since its been sittin for a while, but im not 100% since im not familiar with these old Dirtbikes.... ANY HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED, i know i can count on the suzuki bbs.

sincerely,

Goot

PS, i need to have it fixed by tomorrow, since the NEW owners are coming to pick it up, and i dont think they will ever believe me... man i feel sick [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Put on your seatbelt... I wanna try something.

yep, the float is stuck down. may want to get a kit for it anyway, if it's been sitting that long. have you tried whacking it with a peice of wood? just not too hard!

That's not really all that long to set and that hose is a float bowl overflow tube. Just remove the bowl, dump the old fuel out, pull the pivot pin from the float so's you can remove the needle valve. Just blow it out (careful if using compressed air), and assemble. You maybe can do this without completely removing the carb just by loosening the clamps and rotating the carb around enough to get access to the screws that hold the bowl on. You can add a little Berrymans B-12 to the gas to clean things up a mite.
