orings need to be petroleum proof. Neoprene is not the stuff. Nitryl-butyl rubber, (aka "nitryl rubber") is the oring material that you need, but I suspect they are almost all made of that now.

Thanks Doug for the T's! I received them on Monday. They look to be alittle longer than I remember mine being. It's been a few months since I had the carb off the bike. I should be able to tear into it in about 2 weeks. Schedule looks extremely busy right now. I'll let you know as soon as I get mine out if they work or not! If they are not the right size...I'll send them back!

Thanks again to everyone who commented on this thread, you've all been a huge help~!
Mike

Bummer Dude.

Doug, I had a chance to get the carb off tonight, and the T's that you sent me are too big. The T's you sent me are approx. 1 1/2" across the top of the T, and 1 5/16" from top to bottom.

My T's (all four of them) are only 1" across the top of the T, and 1 1/16" from top to bottom.

Two of mine are in "decent" shape...good enough for the top "vent" T's, so I still just need to find two for the fuel lines.

QRFan, do you have the size T's I need??

Doug, please send me your address, and I'll get yours sent back to you. Thanks again for trying!!!!

Mike

Mike - Never hurts to try. It may be a few days before you hear from QRfan. She's mentioned in the SWOXS social group that she was going to Seattle, and wouldn't be back 'till monday - just so you know.

I'll PM you my address.

I am sure they are for the fuel because they still have a hose and inline filter hooked to them.

SFerinTX, are you in need of those T's, or are you willing to part with them?! ???

Also, Red Bandit, I might just take you up on that!!!! I need help setting the float heights. Is that something you know how to do?

mbazzle, I've done many of these carbs. I can help you with the float height and I have gauges to help you sync/tune them too.

Sorry , thats a back burner project I intend to finish on a 78e I picked up a while back. What about the ones you got from doug ? I will probably have to improvise a little myself when the time comes cause the ones I have are in pretty bad shape.Not gonna worry about it till I need to. Good Luck to you.

Doug, I dropped your T's in the mail today so you should have them back by the weekend. Thanks again.

SF~ Thanks for the info anyway! Good luck with rebuilding yours!

Red Bandit, YOU ROCK!!! I leave for Wash. DC tomorrow, but I'll be in touch with you soon! I'd LOVE to get this ol girl on the road! I've already put so much into it, I can't bare the thought of giving up now! Thanks again for your offer to help, Lord knows I need it!

Mike - Got 'em in the mail today. Thanks for sending them back. I was trying to determine from this thread - did you find the right tees or are you still looking?
