dellorto carb on dt hose location



  • 28mm dellortro think its pbh I got it of scrim on here its off a tdr I believe I m not sure where the hoses should go from carb to engine
    thought I could find a diagram on google but no luck



  • @dan28 Ah ryt interesting. They're round slide right. Better off with the original flat slide carb that came with these DT's. You find those carbs on the restricted RS125's.



  • The one pointing upwards is a carb overflow fuel line. Simply put a line in of the right size, tuck it behind the shock to the floor.

    The other two are carb warmer pipes. Not needed, but they should meet with corresponding lines on the head.

    I m not even sure what way round these should go I guess one goes to the head an the other to thermostat housing also what is the small gold pipe for coming out of the carb



  • @dan28
    two of them are pointing up one big one small



  • @dan28 Yeah mate, it doesn't matter. The smaller one is the fuel overflow pipe.



  • The first year early dts used a round slide carb, have one on the next rebuild lined up, although my red 88 had already been changed for a flat side one. Do you think it's worth changing to a flat side when I do the rebuild? What are the advantages of either? Thanks Calum



  • @oldman more precise throttle response the flatslide has powerjet I don’t believe the round slides do?



  • @oldman There won't be much difference at wide open throttle, but at part throttle, the air can seep around the round slide, causing the fueling to be ever so slightly lean. It's not going to cause any issues, but that's a draw back of the round slide.

    @declan The dellorto round slide probably has a power jet.
