So, like the title states I got bored this weekend and decided to address a long over due carb sinc on my project bike. Didnít have a manometer and didnít feel like throwing $100 down the road buying one and since Iím cheap found others had mad one that works just as well at home.
Off to the back yard with the boy to hunt down some left over wood from last months deck build and found the perfect 2x8 and a couple of pre-cut 1x6ís. Screwed them together and a couple coats of paint and you have the makings of less floor space in your garage.
Had my son help draw some lines with his trusty Sharpe and weíre well on our way.
No Father / Son project would be complete without a name so ďThe Suck-O-MeterĒ was born.
Down to the hardware store for some tubing, pipe ĎTís and couplers to go with the vacuum tube already in the shop. We needed a way of reducing and equalizing the vacuum but had a hell of a time finding something out here in the sleepy little village of the Wack. Some cold drinks for us went by before my little brain thought about jamming some left over pilot jets into the rubber vacuum tube. Should work, right?
Some old automatic transmission fluid put the final bow on the project and was a real sense of accomplishment for my son and me. Now to test it out.
No pictures of the test but suffice to say she works, too well. I confirmed that I have a slight leak in two carbs and will need to address it this winter. Got it close but not perfect.
Anyway, Iím sure there are a hundred of these around but none build by my son and I. Also I told my son it's a MAN-o-meter. Cheers and thanks for reading.
