    Vent passage drilled out?

    Vent passage on the carbs going jn Wes's bike have been opened up. I'm not sure why they would do this. Looks like it just vents the bowl to open air looking at the carb body, so I don't think it will hurt anything but I also don't see any benefits.

    Anyone know why someone would do this?

    I can't figure it out unless they where looking for the air screw and got lost. Is this some old school magic that got lost with time, a faded trend, a mistake, anyone?

    no problem with that but somebody didn't know enuff to leave things alone, just like the fool who ruined these 2 emulsion tubes by radically over-tightening (good one in the middle)........

      never seen that done. if this is tied to the diaphragm vent what is the difference if the black tube is opened to the elements???

        Looks like the bowl vent not diaphragm. It's to those two small tubes that come up the top that I always think are brass then I see a set of carbs and the are steel and I think "Mandela effect" and go on with my day..

          I think I might JB Weld or epoxy a press-fit nipple (that doesn't block that passage just inside) so I could run a short hose to point down.

            Is it maybe a top secret fix to the 'vent lines causing surging' problem?

            If so, that would be pretty clever.

              I started to do this years ago thinking that it was the mixture screw. . I didn't get too far before I realized it wasn't. I plugged the tiny hole I had made with JB Weld.

                  That was my first guess when I saw it. Someone missed looking for the screw.
