Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
I think part of your question got cut off. How is it I can help you?
Hi Mike, I'm going to decline the phone call for now until I know what kind of issue you are having. I don't want to call you just to say I can't help you. That being said, whats up, what kind of issue are you having?
I gotcha. You need a hose diagram for that engine. I don't own the manual for that one so I don't have it. I will opt out, if one of the other guys has it they will jump in.
Lets see if I can explain this. Under the top cover on the intake are two fittings the ones under the top carb go to the center main bearings. The two under the bottom carb the top one goes to the #1 bypass cover, top starboard side. The bottom goes to the #2 top port bypass cover.
There should be a very small fitting in the center of the carbs where the carbs attach to the intake, on the intake. It is by itself. One for each carb.
By the way from your model number you have a 1982 motor.
Sorry it is a 1980, I mis counted the model number.
OK found my hose routing for that engine. Hold on for a couple minutes, I will try and scan and attach the diagram.
No they go to the bypass covers
This should bring up a PDF for you.
Do you have adobe acrobat to open pdf files?
Can't text it. Are you on a computer or smart phone?
OK it is a free download, then try the link and let me know.
OK I know which motor you have They only did that for maybe one year then changed the hoses.
On the bypass covers are both of the fittings just small nipples are is one a larger fitting?
From the primer the hose goes to a T fitting then two hoses to each side. One each for each bypass cover. Then each primer hose went to a small fitting. The recirculation hoses went to a check valve fitting, I'm sure on the intake and believe it is on the bypass cover as well.
The recirculation hoses went to the same fittings as in the diagram I attached. So the primer would be the other one.
They are not oil or fuel but a mix. The recirculation system is recirculating unused fuel/oil mix.
You also had a nipple from the intake near the bottom to the air silencer to recirculate fuel that got into the air box.
One of the few service manuals I can't find is my 1980.
The recirculation should be the same as the diagram. The primer would be the other one. Let me look at some things at the shop tomorrow.
Nothing past what I told you so far. I'm still looking. They only made the engine like yours for one year. I haven't given up yet.
Saw that yesterday but not sure.
I'm sure I have my 1980 service manual just need to find it.
Well I'm still not finished with you yet.
You have to rate me first, I'll be glad to activate the link. You can rate any time you are satisfied.
I had to go find a 1980 and then make a diagram of the hoses. This is what was on the engine, a little crude but it should show where they go both the primer and the bypass. The circles are the intakes for the carbs. #1 is the top starboard side of the engine. Primer is out of position for simplicity. There is a T in the line off each primer nipple from the primer. Not shown is the line to the primer from the fuel supply. They only did it this way one year as far as I can determine.
This should get you going. As a note we are not paid until rated, so nothing has gone through yet.
That is correct.
I don't think anything. They both end up going to the same place, the cylinder to be burned. They aren't the same as recirculation hoses that go to the crankshaft bearings.
