today i took my carbs off to clean them and the bolt that keeps the bowl on was stripped all to peices no way i could tighten them, so i switched everything from my carburators to another set i had, i made no adjustments to them at all, but now the sled floods so bad that gas drips from the bowls in the carb, the seat and needles were replaced last year so i don't think it was them, i hardly did any driving, but before i switched them my sled worked awesome, anyone have any ideas? :bash:

I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, but it sounds like something's not seated properly and your floats aren't comming up.
Pull em off and put everything back together again. Or use your old carbs and just use the bolts from the other carb bowls.

Last year my float stuck on my Phazer, sled almost caught on fire..When I got home I cleaned them up and reset everything...It,s good to go now...

On the carbs with the striped screws, can you remoce them using a nidle nose vise grip? If so you can get new screws or gind them flat on 2 sides after there off and grind them to fit a small open end wrench for refastining.

it's not the screws that are stripped, the actual carb is stripped on the inside.. it sucks, i don't think there is any way of retreading them but i'm not sure,also on the stripped set of carbs i foun 2 spark plugs ends squeezed in the pilot jet holes.. made no sence to me, anyone no if they r there for a reason

yup those are there to cover up for someone loosing the original plastic caps i bet. there should be 3 holes the same, or about the same size, and the big main jet hole, 2 of the three holes should be pluged, one day when i was wondering about that i sat there for like 30min sprayin wd40 through holes to find out how i all worked, i totaly forget now but 2 do need to be blocked. there is little holes onthe side or somthing, but you definatly need those pluged or your motor will flood. this is probably your problem if your spares are not pluged.

hey, stupid question, but it seemed to work,to test the floats to see if they were working, i held the carbs upside down and blew into where the fuel lines connect, their was no air passing through at all, no matter how hard a blew, does this meen my floats,needles and seats are working properly?
