So, I've made it back on the road - finally!



However, not without some niggly problems....The charging system is sorted, but I can't get the carbs to run properly... and I certainly daren't light a match anywhere near it!
Does anyone know where there are any later model carbs for sale? The SS1's I fear are worn out. I don't really want to buy new ones, as I would like to keep the airbox.
Any help or suggestions much appreciated.
Cheers

Paul.

If nothing else, they can be found on ebay.


Best to buy the VHB manifolds as well - the curve is slightly different than those for the SS1s.

thanks Amboman for spotting the VHBs, just rebuilt them including the plastic filters in the banjos. Can anybody suggest a way of stopping the banjos from leaking (really pouring out). I followed Greg Benders suggestions, but it didn't help.
Thanks,
Paul.

If they are metal banjos, you need an M6 fiber washer under the head of the bolt securing them. If you already have those, make sure the filters are fully seated into position. Also, the banjos are supposed to have a "ridge" where they contact the filter, many times this is corroded away or carelessly removed, resulting in a leak.

I've got the M6 washer in place. I've put a fibre washer between the banjo and filter and it seems to have sorted it (fingers crossed).
I now think I need a different pair of carb. manifolds, the ones that came with the carbs. are off a 1972 750,I'd hoped these would work as they are different to the ones off the SS1s, but airbox to carbs. will not line up. One step forward and two back at the moment, I suppose that's what winter nights are for.
thanks'
Paul.

It shouldn't be necessary to put a fiber washer there - the banjo is designed to seal on the filter. Perhaps too long of a bolt is fitted and it's bottoming out before everything seals?

If the manifolds are from a "72 750" then they should be the correct angle. There are two different rubber boots for SS1s and VHBs and they're not interchangeable. If you're trying to use the SS1 boot with VHBs, then it won't work.
