Hello,

Taking main out, the nozzle turned. There is an open area in nozzle, does it go towards barrel or air box? Can you tighten nozzle?
Also snapped small plastic piece that connects float together. Crazy Glue or does someone have a float they don't want?
Thanks for any help.

Damn, that's a much better price! Surprised at the difference. WTF?
To say nothing of the $136 to $148 lower price for a complete carb at R. A.

Hello,

Thanks for replies. Yes #24 the nozzle turns into carb and then #29 main screws into nozzle so you can change or clean.
Half of the nozzle is open and need to know if the open part is towards barrel or air box. Can't seem to find that in pics.
Thanks again for your help and the Ron Ayers tip.

What do you mean by open part? Open part of what? Are you talking about the brass tube that is under the main nozzle(#29)? Does it look something like this?


A photo or two of what you're talking about might help.

Hello,

Thanks for pic WayneJ.
If this is the tube that sticks up in the carb, the nozzle, that that main jet screws in to, mine is broke.
On your pic, there is a hole at top. Mine looks like it has broken off at the hole. Half is there and half is broke off, I guess.
When I tried to take main out BOTH brass pieces turned and did not come out. Will try harder tonight. That means something else will break.
Thanks again for pic.

The pic of the emulsion tube I posted was out of a Honda lawnmower engine carb.

I think the one in the XT carb is not supposed to come out. That is why it's not in the parts diagram. If it did come out, you might need a new carb. Especially if it is broken and in two pieces. There is really no way to fix it. Bummer.

Just looked at my spare carb and emulsion tube seems to be pressed in.... I would not suggest trying to remove it. Unless as Wayne said, you want to buy a new carb.

valve adjustment

does anyone know if it is possible to adjust the valves without removing the fuel tank? I have a Haynes and that is what it suggest. This is the first time every working on a motorcycle, so my knowledge is none. i do have to replace the right side engine cover, that is leaking. so i'll just change the filter/oil while i'm at it. Got to get the bike ready, spring is coming and i'm itching to ride.
anyone out there have some tip/tricks for me?

Never done it but Im sure it would be a PIA to do it with the tank on. Cant be very hard & gotta be way easier than the other stuff youre gonna do.
Pull it & clean any dirt away that might fall into the engine after you open it up to adjust the valves.
