After looking through the bike carb write up, I still feel pretty confused about what I need to successfully get a carb setup running. The engine is a bone stock PL 16v.
1.) Fuel pump- I heard that a Carter is a great option. I know that it's not a in tank pump, so how would you integrate one into the stock fuel line? How should I mount it and power it? How do I even get the lines correctly hooked up? I also heard something about a return line (?)
2.) Jets- I still have a rocky understanding of what they do, however I know I need to rejet them to work with the larger engine. I assume #170 is a good jet to start with.
3.) Ignition- I hear that I can advance my distributor all the way. (Is this all I need to get it started and running?)
4.) Regulator- I plan on getting the Holley FPR and gauge. I get that I can run it straight across in/out and probably max it out at 3psi, according to a few posts I've read.
5.) Needles- like jets, I have a rocky understanding of what they do. Do I need to modify or replace them to work?
6.) ECU/Knockbox- is this something I can totally get rid of? Do I need to cut anything out?
7.) Manifold- I would love to angle them so that they clear the alternator, considering that I just replaced my old one. I think I need two fittings for the brake booster.
8.) Tuning- Something about 3 and 1/2 turns on the jets then adjusting the idle screws to get a good idle? Is this all I need for daily driving? (Not planning on tracking, just general driving and a little mischief now and then 😉.)
9.) Choke- how would I route it into the cabin? What choke do I need?
10.) Fuel hose- how much in length did you need for your conversion?
I appreciate any help you can give. Sorry to beat the dead horse on some of these questions. I guess I've got a lot to get figure out!
