Yup, those look extremely similar to what I've seen taking my carbs apart except it didn't show the other side, but it's easy to figure out.

other side?

nevermind. im not gonna mess with that side. just gonna clean what i have to. i read this article where this guy just dumped b 12 into the tank and ran the engine on that and gas til it cleaned the carbs. it worked pretty well appearantly. good idea or bad? i figure bad since carb cleaner will eat rubber and plastics, right?

Re: carb teardown and cleaning?

I would use seafoam if you just want to dump it into the tank.

But nothing beats the break down.

It is a shame you are so far from me... I would have no problem helping you out with this bike.. Make it run nice and smooth!
The offer it open if you feel you want to bring it up, its just a long drive.

Then you should have no problem with this. The "other side" I referenced is even easier to figure out than the side you see in the pictures. Just be careful with the rubber parts so you don't rip them - they're not extremely delicate, but they could rip if they're super old and dried out.

TAKE IT APART! It's a great learning experience.

Re: carb teardown and cleaning?

its gotta be a really small turbine. i work with a engine that could fit in the front of my car and it puts out around 2000 shaft horses which equates 4000 hp. its like 3 feet long and 2 feet wide. it powers the AH1 Cobra attack helicopter.
