What if you don't *fully* connected the intake ducts on the carburators ? The round plastic boots.

We're talking 14073 here:



Mine have been really annoying to put back on and I like a little bit is sticking out at an angle no matter what I do. Just wanted to no what the consequences could be. Thanks.

Re: What happens IF....

It's the airbox - its where the filter is and the part I mentioned goes to the carbs.

Air leakage... i guess.
does that equal less power?
i believe that air leakage = more oxygen for everyone, so everyone wins.

seriously tho, i thought you were talkin abotu something else, and im bored so there u go.

kinda... i'd imagine the "suck" isn't as great on the one carb as the other, and would cause a vacuum imbalance. just me thinking aloud. I'll change the title of the thread so FOG or someone else shuffles in.

Your letting un filtred air in to your engine with any crap that happens to be in it. Eventually you will loose power from the increased wear. Fix it. it's not that hard , wimp.

OK so here's how I resolved this issue.

That the carb has two rubber hooses (or heuses as School yard Willy says) - that connect to the engine and two rubber boots that connect to the airbox. If you take off the heuses from the engine, but leave them on the carb looseley, and then get the carbs all the way tight in the airbox first - with the springs on, its MUCh easier to get it on the engine part (as opposed to the other way around.)

[cuz at first I had it on the engine and wastrying to force the airbox side on]

sorry this sounds retarded I'm exhausted I'll try to get pics later.
