    Carb rebuild question

    I am rebuilding the carbs on my 99 GSX LTD. On the PTO carb, when I blow compressed air through the cover with the fuel inlet nipple, barely any air will flow through. When I blow air through the same cover on the MAG carb (pump cover), the air blows right through with little restriction. Is this normal or is the cover clogged?

    I would tend to think its clogged but the carbs are actually pretty clean and I didnt find any dirt in them.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    it should flow easily in both. i would open the pto carb again and double check all passages are clear with throttle cleaner and air. if you did not rebuild the carbs, i would recommend that too.

    yes I bought rebuild kits and have been cleaning everything with carb cleaner and compressed air. Everything flows freely when you spray cleaner and air through except that cover. I thought it was kind of weird that just that would be clogged thats why I want to make sure its not by design before I order a new cover. Its not really possible to clean it out with a wire because there are 3 90 degree bends to go through...

    all set, the fitting was the fuel return not the inlet, it is supposed to be restricted to maintain fuel pressure.
