Hi!

Am new to the forums and restoring an '86 that was in a storage unit for a while. Now reinstalling the cleaned carbs and
been wondering if there is a good diagram or assembly manual type doc that includes wiring harness/hose routing that
might be available to almost normal guys. The carb inlets seem to be a hose from each rear carb from the pump/filter and it looks like the front carbs are feed internally from the rears? Then there is that plastic fitting between the front carbs with a couple of hose
attachments. Any pointers would be appreciated!!

thanks!

Looks like the "Y" outlet from the fuel pump goes to each of the two hoses connected to the base of the rear carbs, just above the fuel bowls, so it probably feeds all 4? The tank outlet connects to the fuel filter inlet. There is a plastic cross tube between the front carbs that connects (tees) to another plastic fitting between the rear carbs using a 3 or 4 inch hose, and this is a double tee which is the one that has me confused. All of the fittings are accounted for except this one open plastic nipple between the rear carbs. which is more or less in the same location as the ends of the two input hoses which connect to the fuel pump. Is that an overflow or something? I don't see what it's supposed to connect to it....

thanks,
bill
