Restoring another vintage and just totally rebuilt some carbs. Runs pretty good, but I'd like to sync them out. Anyone in the DC/metro/Baltimore area have a carb sync tool I can borrow? I can bring you a six pack for your generosity

Super easy to build your own water manometer.

Tubing. Plywood, yardstick. water. food coloring.

Yeah, I read about that. Might be the way to go since I'll probably work on more old bikes in the future.

Just found 4 different ways to make a home made sync tool all under the cost of a six pack of beer.

Use automatic transmission fluid instead of water and food coloring. if it gets sucked in, it burns off with no problems. That's what I use in mine.

Yup, I was gonna use 30w oil, but the dark trans fluid sounds even better. Thanks for the heads up!
