Well it's got new cables and a Shindy kit. Got tired of fighting the choke cable. Grinder to the rescue. Heater ran out of fuel and the fingers were turning white. And my poor pinky was throbbing. Enough for today.

Are you going to rebuild the rear brake and drum? The drum has a service limit stamped on the inside. Don't take off too much. The rear brake hates thin/soupy mud. I would get new rubber oring seals for the front brakes as well. Water will freeze up your brakes leaving you stuck.

The rear wasn't frozen and seems OK. I haven't even opened it up. The front shoes look brand new and the seals after cleaning look fine. Front drums had just a bit of corrosion that I wire brushed out. New Dorman wheel cylinders ready to go in. Thanks for the tip on the mud but I'm done playing in the muck. I used to help campaign this little fella. Go fast or go home.

Well I've got questions. Searched for vacuum diagrams and can't find anything. It's hooked up the way I found it but just looks wrong and unfinished. I used the nylon port for the vent after all. View attachment 23309

Them 2 skinny ones (these 3 are puzzling ) are maybe the front brake drum breather hoses . The white plastic spigot on the carb ( or is this a vent ) is where the vacuum fuel tap gets its suck from on my quad , steel one is for the fuel pump vacuum .馃榾

I'll have to look at the brakes better when I put them back together, didn't unhook em, and don't remember seeing nipples. Thanks for the vacuum ports, that makes sense. Little suck for petcock, big suck for pump.

Went to the local shop that just opened. Fellas were very helpful. The two little hoses under the tank were indeed front brake vents, just hadn't noticed the nipples. The pump and petcock went to the cylinder side of the carb. Petcock to the nylon barb, fuel pump to the steel barb. On the filter side above the inlet bell, one brass port for overflow, the other for atmospheric vent. Don't know which is which. One of them leads to the tee shown, don't see anything else to hook to the tee so it'll just be left there. Fuel supply goes to the steel barb situated low on the left side of carb over the bowl.
Thanks for the help McTool! You nailed em.

Still have to put a hose on the bowl drain. Everything to do with gasoline and carb vents hooked up. Put power on it, and no lights on the panel. Nothing on the start button. It's trouble light and meter time. Between side gigs and cold I'm slow.
