Shopmade Carb Sync Gauge
By Ross Spoonland 

I made this setup from an old vacuum gauge, copper
pipe/caps, needle valve, clothespins and 3/16" rubber
hose to synchronize the carbs on my Valkyrie.

I made the manifold from 1" copper
pipe soldering on end caps and six
1/4" nipples. Before I found the
needle valve I had another nipple on
the end cap crimped down to stabilize
the vacuum impulses

I used five clothespins to block all
lines but one. After getting a base
reading on # 3 I simply moved a pin
from the next cylinder to check to
line # 3 and so on down the line till
all carbs were checked  F6Rider Webzine    ShopTalk    Just Pics    Valkyrie Hot Links
