carb boots
« on: September 02, 2017, 08:22:56 pm »
Does anyone know the difference between the 2and4 cylinder boot and the 1and3 cylinder boot? I didn't mark them after removing them from the airbox.

The flats on the airbox end face each other on 1&2 and 3&4..
When inserted into the airbox holes, the longer snorkle end goes at the top, and the close snorkle end is the bottom...

So, to splain it easier... set them all on the bent snorkle ends, with the carb ends facing upward, and match the flats on the body of the boot, where it seals that grroved ring on the box... that should be easiest to understand.

#1 & #3 are the same,   and #2 & #4 are the same, really doesn't make any difference which goes where, if that is your question...

I have an 2 old sets, '86&'88 and one new set in bags, none of mine had/have the numbers moulded in... the new set in bags was purchased in '05, and does have part number on the bag tho..

When I pulled the first set outta the bags, and went to install them, I did in all truth have an "oh crap... which is which " moment... but that passed quickly as I knew what they looked like when installed... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
