Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

Hey, here's a tip I 'discovered' when trying to track down & fix an air leak; I wanted to replace my O-ring in the carb that fits between the carb & intake, but at the time, my wife had the car & I was stranded. So I took a 1/2" length of 5/8's inch diameter automotive heater hose, and used that in place of the plastic (grommet? spacer? whatever you call it) and made sure the leading edge was flat where it seats into the carb. It fits real snug and seemed to seal it up nicely. The carb is also tight on the manifold, even when the lock down screw is loose.
By the holy power of Love, Life & Laughter, I commend you to Go Forth & Be Awesome!
