    Carb / blank off questions

    So... i've fitted blank off plates, slung out the octopus, fitted bigger jets, k&n pods..

    When it came to the carbs, i found this original post... http://www.zrxocboard.com/board/show...hlight=octopus

    The fuel tap that came with the Tank I bought from Nigel doesn't appear to have a vacuum feed... you turn it to on and the fuel just comes pouring out.

    Should I just be blocking all 4 of the vacuum stubs? At the moment, i literally have two bits of tube connecting 1 and 2 / 3 and 4 effectively blocking them off.

    Yes, without a vacuum tap you need to cap all four spigots/stubs or it will not run good

    Linking them as you have is acceptable but prob a little neater to fit individual covers in the long run

    Thanks Nige..

    I've just had them stripped, ultrasonic'ed and the guy called me this morning asking the same questions... was trying to explain the set up and i suddenly had a massive moment of doubt that i'd fucked up something royally!

    I'll get some proper caps.. seems the right way forward!
