'90 Jag AFS

Just picked up a pair of 1990 jag afs 440. I plan one making 1 running sled out of them.

Going to need some help from someone that's dealt with these sleds before

How do I pull the carb on one of these...It looks like the dash panel is going to have to come off in order to get the air box out, is that what you have to do or is there another way?

No the air box DONT come out! Try just warming the rubber boots on both sides of the carb with a heat gun or hair dryer! Then just wist them out with out the cables and hose attached!

The fuel line inside the gas tank has fallen apart. (is it ok to leave pieces of it in the tank or should I get it out?) What size fuel line do I need for this section?

And will the same fuel line work for the rest of the way?

I know it is smaller? Like 3/16 or 5 mm? But the OD is important! The resty is like 1/4 or 6mm!

The fuel line in the tank are 1/4 inch. There not smaller. It would be in your best interest to get the old fuel line peices out of the tank.

So 1/4" should work to replace all the fuel lines?

Is there a way to measure it(like the outside diameter?) I could just measure it to know for sure.

Since I'm waiting on fuel line, I started repairing the windshield... what works good for sticking the black strip back on the top of it? would super glue work?

Also the left ski has a lot of play in it, where can I tighten that up?

Thanks

Yes super glue will work. The play in the ski could b fron several things start by checking the hime joint and then the bushing in the spindle. So check from the top down

Once gas gets to the carb, bubbles come out of the carb and push the gas back down towards the pump.

Is this normal, and do I just keeping pulling until no more bubbles... or?
I stopped because I didn't want to force too much pressure in there.

Need some help ASAP

Just noticed the handle bars are bent just a little bit. I will be swapping them with the bars on my parts sled tomorrow and the sled should be done for now.

My Jag 440 AFS (1990) won't idle either, but I have a kill feature in the throttle, a little rubber thing that presses into a little disc and pushes it in, whilst that is in place so the disc is pushed in, you can't start the sled. However if you press the throttle v slightly, so that the little rubber thing is held away from the disc, it starts and runs Maybe you have the same thing on yours?

I rode it around the house once when I got it outside, and it idled just fine after that. I also noticed that the kill switch didn't work.
