Need a diagram, I have searched, the pics from old threads are gone :crying: Restoring one with all rotted hoses and wanting to just bypass (I live in a warm area.):nerd:
No need for a circuit to keep my carb from icing where I live.I don't want to cause an arguement here. I just want to understand what the porpous is for doing this?
Yes, they are a carb/intake heater for cold climate. Fuel/air has strong chilling properties and carbs will ice up in cold climates.the coolant lines are not there for cold weather....
unless you live where 150 degrees are common..
but go ahead.. your bike.
That's exactly what I was hoping to do route wise except skip manifold, but wanted to see a flow pattern to be certain it was something that could be done with an expectation of reliability. Thank You!I removed coolant hoses from my carb when changing out the slide valve diaphragm.
One hose has different ID on the ends so that was re-used to do the bypass.
Link below has the hose routing diagram. Coolant heats up manifold also.
A pic of a hose that was cut off and the piece not used. Cooling system diagram found.
Coolant cross-over pipe hose stayed, manifold to carb was old route, now manifold to TEE on return line to coolant pump.
Honda and Yamaha seem to think folks are gonna ride all winter.Air cooled twins and triples carbs may have gotten some engine heat from the air box under the seat/tank area.
No direct heating.
H-D carb heat from cylinders...
BMW may have used some exhaust heat to warm the carbs.
Seems I may have seen something like that.
