    Restrictor hole?

    I pulled my fuel tank and good thing I did. Chock full of sediment and junk. I also pulled out the fuel restrictor and it was plugged. Did a search on hole size, and most said 016. A small safety pin wont even fit thru mine. is this correct? Its SMALL, I mean small. (94SLT) Thanks Lugs? K447? Anyone?Kevin, eric robert, ahhhh!! Hello

    Yes, sir. It is extremely tiny. Holding it up to the light, you almost can't see through it. And that's with both my contacts in and reading glasses on.

    You probably need to clean out, or even better, replace those fuel lines, if you have not done so already.

    Some of that grit from the tank will have circulated all the way through the system, into every piece of the system.

    As you have now seen, even a tiny bit of dirt can clog the return restrictor, so the fuel system needs to be squeaky clean.

    I'll say. That lil' hole is, well, a little hole. I'm going to go ahead and do that K447. Do I have to use marine grade fuel line or just fuel line, like automotive?
    I'm going on a short family vacation until Tuesday. On Wednesday and Thurday, I need to check the screens in my carbs, put the fuel tank back in, re-plumb all the fuel lines, and clean 'er up. On Friday, me and my son are going to Sacremento area to ride the delta with SoCal and NorCal AWA members. Some of the rides will be long so I wanna try to get her into ready shape. WOOOHOOO!! Should be fun.
    Oh yeah, I also need to put my new reverse bucket on. Thanks Eric!!!

    Any decent quality 1/4" fuel line will do.

    Use good quality clamps. Something like the Oetiker Stepless Ear clamps are excellent.
