i have 4 phbg clones and only one has a hole and thats closed off with a brass ball
the others dont.
i mean the two tiny holes next to the float valve. not the big holes.
does yours have those tiny holes mike boyd? not the big ones.
this carb runs poorly but i dont know if its due to my reed valve conversion on an av7 and 2 boost ports i cut that could be pressuring my intake and leaking chinese copy v force reeds could be allowing the fuel to spit out of the carb.
or it could be these holes.
they are not in the other phbg clones so to me are unfamiliar. i cannot see right down into where they go but i know they go towards the valve seat area.
if mike boyd says his phbg's have them then maybe they are meant to be there.
hey PD you sound as if you are calling me a liar ie not looking at where they went. do you not think this would be the first thing i did? and not come rushing out of my garage to my pc and post a question on a forum in a different timezone to me where most people are asleep?
if you havent got a phbg clone then pd i dont see how you can help here. apart from suggesting stuff which is the obvious course of action should a positive response not materialse from someone who owns one. mike boyd might just have been that response. in which case its my port job/reeds thats the problem.
i suppose i can try the carb on a different motor.
and i do have a clear plastic float bowl for the phbg's.
