quote: Yeah he has a mess there. As you said those carbs arent covered in the Clymers. Maybe he can get ahold of an actual Honda shop manual for the 78. The screws he messed with under the top cover are for syncing the carbs. He seems to be under the impression that there are two screws for air/fuel mixture. As you know there is one screw per carb and in his case they meter fuel. They are the screws under the carbs, in front and center of the float bowls(toward the engine) and they are mounted vertically. If he bottoms them out clockwise then turns them out 1.5 to 2 turns, that should be a good base point. He'll need to pull the carbs again and try to bench sync them(sorry I dont know the specs for the slides) then sync them while its running. He should be able to measure the clearance on the cut away side of the #2 carb and match the others to it. The #2 carb is the "preset" carb and is the one that you match the others to durring a sync. Match carb 1 to 2, then 4 to the others and finally 3. He'll probably end up having to increase the vacuum on 1 and 4 a bit once he does a running sync since their inlets are longer. I think the screws he mentions having the yellow torque paint on them are for adjusting choke but Im not certain. All said, he should probably find a set of carbs that havnt been pulled off the bank or messed with, and use those as a reference. Nothing wrong with having extra carbs and parts right?
