1980 PA 50 Carb fuel line

I'm a newbie restoring a 1980 PA50. I'm close to getting it all back together.

But before I take that first crank. I have a very odd question, that I can't seem to find an answer to online.

Which inlet does the fuel go into. I've seen how to rebuild them. and I'm in good shape there. New just about everything.

But the moped came in pieces. and I can't find a fuel diagram online. So I'm lost. I did see a discussion on here. but it still wasn't clear to me.

Does it plug in near the bell housing (bottom) or up on the top?

Thats the article I mentioned that still didn't make it clear to me.

Re: 1980 PA 50 Carb fuel line

There is a very clearly labeled picture toward the bottom in that page that says fuel inlet. It's the plastic banjo fitting.

Re: 1980 PA 50 Carb fuel line

Ok, so fuel goes in near the bell housing (bottom)

Then what is the other port for (top)? Is it a vacuum hose? Where does it connect too? Or, does it get capped off? or just let it be for air intake?

Re: 1980 PA 50 Carb fuel line

You should have figured all this out when you had the carb apart .

It's usually pretty obvious what goes where and for what reason .

But , you didn't , so maybe next time . ;)

I am surprised you didn't catch this, but for some reason the photo you're reffing is of a Dellorto SHA, not a hobbit carb. So telling him the plastic banjo is not gonna help.

The circled portion is fuel inlet. on yours it may be a completely brass elbow, or cast like this.

Fair point, I looked quickly.

Re: 1980 PA 50 Carb fuel line

Ah, So it is the top.

Thank you for clarifying.

Still what is the other port then. the one by the bell housing?

Re: 1980 PA 50 Carb fuel line

Float bowl vent.

Re: 1980 PA 50 Carb fuel line

Ok, so run a hose and have it flow out to nothing.
