I labeled what lines go where so as not to forget.
I took every part of the carb apart and cleaned it.
I removed slide and the manufacture's screws were punched on the back side so the screws would not fall out. I used a split washer and blue lock-tight to replace them.
I let the lock-tight dry over night and put the carb back together.
Even though I saw no crystalization on the jets or anything I really hoped the bike would fire up after I reinstalled the carb.
It did not. There is compression and it appeared the fuel was flowing and the carb was functioning, but it did not fire up.
I looked beneath the gas tank to check the fuel lines and such once more and found this:
I traced the line to the "Canister Kit".
And then I traced it to the top of the fuel tank.
I do not have a spare line to replace the split on yet.
Which by the way makes a puddle of gas when I kick start -- not sure why. I suspect it happened when I rolled the scooter down the ramp out of my garage without the seat on it. I sat on the bike and I may have sat on the "L" valve. A used gas tank costs $5o. The other option is to find someone who will weld a dry clean gas tank - also possible. The easiest and first step should be to test JB Weld on it. Remember, the way of least resistance is always best when repairing scoots.
