Re: Vent Tube Nozzle
Everytime I see someone wanting to spend money on this miricle "Vent tube " fix, I've got to put in my 2 cents. If you have ever rebuilt this carb, you would realize that this vent tube is just that, a BOWL VENT TUBE! It is a pollution control part. The vacumn supply for the secondaries is on the opposite side of the cab and the orifices are directly under the roll pin on the little bars that hold your venturi's in. A carb cutaway pic will prove this. This tube was created as a fix to pull all vapor from the rather large bowl vent passage. It is a placebo, and it upsets me that the good ZUKI people of the world are getting bilked for $20 a shot for a $1 part that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the secondaries. If anyone resonds back to this saying opinions to the contrary, please tell me (if you think it works) exacty how a bowl vent would help hesitation, especially since this vent is closed off by the bowl vent solonoid after start-up! Thanks for listening to me rant.
