Steve,

On the "Yellow Bike" I ended up putting a Mikuni vacuum fuel pump on the bike which really helped the drive out of the corners.

:oops: hi Palmer,
I looked on the inter webs to see what these are...how are they connected?
I see some with 1 inlet & 1 outlet and others with 1 inlet & 2 outlets... Maybe the ticket I require to keep the lines filled....
Could you post either a diagram PDF or picture of how these are connected?
I would appreciate it!
Cheers,
Steve

Steve,

I'll take some pictures tonight of the setup. I run the one inlet and two outlet setup and attach the vacuum to the horizontal intake manifold.

Steve,

I didn't get any pictures, but Steve Munro has a good picture on his Curtis flicker sit which shows the fuel pump mounted on "Yellow Bike III". The pumps are mounted on the right hand side of the frame outboard and just forward of the horizontal carb. The fuel line runs from the petcock to the pump, we have been using the single inlet / dual outlet so each carb gets a fuel line from the pump. Vacuum line connects to the plugged hole in the intake manifold.

Thanks Steve,
Sorry for the late reply!
Since the last time I wrote about my bike, I've installed green dyna coils and my goodness, what a difference coils make. It starts first go, fuel bowls are filling and lines are full!
Maybe, it's sucking more?
Anyway, like all good things, they never cease to stop!
I have to deal with an oil leak at the oil pressure switch boss. I have to come up with a brainstorming idea....
Off to the CAD program I go!
Cheers,
Steve

Hi Steve,
If the oil's not pouring out and the threads are o.k. for a snug up, you might be able to postpone the helicoil job until a more convenient time by applying a thin coat of blue Locktite on both sides of a new crush washer after a good clean up of the mating surfaces.

Bill, that's what I have to do!
Strangely, the surface of the oil pressure switch is angled to the thread...
I need to get this perpendicular!
I need to get a larger diameter crush washer that seals the insert!
I'm thinking an o-ring holder.....
Will CAD one up to get machined.....
Cheers,
Steve
