I think your accelerator pump diaphragm is bad

Thanks to all for your feedback. I will pull the carb rack out and try to check all mentioned.
Thanks!

Sweating on the outside of the carbeurator, is usually the result of gasoline leaking THROUGH the aluminum.

it's a die cast part. Castings are naturally porous, and exposure to non-gasoline will frequently 'etch' a pathway into some porous spot, which allows the thinner compounds of a fuel blend to find an easy path through.

Why would it happen? In the die casting process, metal is melted, and then injected under hydraulic pressure into a mold. If there's some sort of contamination in the process (typically, it's in powdered form, and frequently, carbon soot from oil vapors), it'll get impregnated into the casting. It'll be fine for a long time, but eventually, exposure to a variety of things will cause the contaminant to disperse. Ethanol is great at facilitating things like this, but ANYTHING will do it eventually...

And you have a 'sweaty bowl'...

The first thing I'd do, is look for a replacement bowl and put that on... with a new gasket.

I went SCC because I like to tinker with things. Still not done and planning on doing more.

What is it sweating? Gasoline? If so, raw gas on the outside of a hot engine is not good on any level.

i would like to see performance diagrams (dyno?) that show horsepower and torque from a standard carb 1200 oldwing, a injection one like the ltd or a sei and one well running scc oldwing. i wonder what we'd see. i think the oem carb oldwing wins.

You are probably right about performance with early efi but fuel economy should be better than with carbies. :yes:

I'm not going to lose sleep over it. I have bigger fish to fry. I'd rather worry about idle jets clogging up.

Hello to all,

A little update on this... it perfors really well (better than ever) but I'm still having that leak and I'm now sure it is from the accelerator pump. The thing is that I did replaced it along with the little o ring. I will keep running like this and next weekend I will pull the carb rack out and recheck that accelerator pump.

Thanks
Ben
