73 carb o-ring question

Post by spreedoc » Fri Oct 29, 2010 3:45 pm

Hello was wondering if anyone knew of a replacement oring on the main fuel nozzle for the Kawasaki carbs. I soaked mine in acid and when I pulled it out it was gone. Anyone know maybe I can put it together with out it will it still run fine. Thanks

Let me know if you find anything out. I'm going to pull my carb apart again and see what I can see - I've heard these o-ring for the main fuel nozzle (I believe there is one at the top, and one at the bottom??) are notorious for falling apart. I don't believe there is replacements - however if its a standard o-ring might be able to find something at your hardware store. If its gasket material maybe can make one??

I went to harbor freight and bought a metric o-ring kit and it worked just fine.
