1994 Phazer, new to sled, want to cover my bases.
I just recently picked up a 1994 Phazer. I've only had about an hour with it so this is all I know. I was able to put some mix gas into the holes above intake (a plastic double nozzle little tube is there, i pulled that and poured the fuel in). The sled fired right up on the 2nd pull after adding fuel. It idled for about 20 seconds until it ran out of that fuel i poured in. I'm rather certain the fuel in the unit is 2 years old. I've done some digging and it sounds like I need to remove the seat and siphon out all that old gas as well as check fuel filter in the tank. I took the bolts out of the oil resevoir and pulled that aside so i can see what the fuel lines were looking like. THe one going into the pump is rock hard, and so are the ones going to the carbs. I'm going to plan to replace all of these fuel lines and probably the lines running from the oil pump as well. I've not worked on a dual carb system before, typically I clean single carbs. I'm betting these carbs are dirty and will want to confirm that my fuel pump is pushing fuel as well.
does this motor have a bottom end crank case that holds it's own oil? If so, i'd like to change that out as it's probably old oil in there. IF not, that will save me a step. Are there any suggestions as to how to get the carbs off, do I need pull the tanka nd the entire plastics, because the way it looks right now I'm going to struggle getting to anything with the brake rotor and oil tank and other things in my way. If i pull the seat and the tank will that give me room or what's the best way to get to my carbs. I want to try to get these cleaned up without causing any issues in the process.
Thank you in advance for the advice. My first plan tonight is to get the seat off and get all of the old fuel siphoned out of the tank. I will inspect the fuel filter. Then I'm going to pickup some 1/2" fuel line in bulk so that I can begin replacing all of these. Does anybody know what sizes these lines tend to be, i'm pretty sure the one from tank to pump is 1/2", maybe some of the othersare 1/4 or 3/8 line? Basically i want to replace any of these old rock hard lines with something new so i can eliminate any issues now or int he future.
