I came across this video about the venting of the float bowl on a Weber DFT carb from a Goldwing. The reason I am interested is because I have a Weber DFT 32/32 on my '82 and it really smells of gas parked in the garage right after a run. I was thinking that maybe the float level is too high. But now I'm wondering about that vent blocking plunger thing which is disabled on my carb.

Comments and suggestions are appreciated

It’s been awhile but if I remember, that valve is designed to vent the bowl to a charcoal canister when the engine is off. Just for information, Langdon must not see it as needed because the carb I got from him already had that wire cut too short to connect to.

Thanks for the responses.

So is it necessary to take the top off the carb and remove that plunger? Sounds like maybe not.

I still suspect too high gas level in bowl leading to gas smell after running. How hard is it to take the top off to check/ adjust float? Can I do it without removing carb from bike?

Is there any literature about working on the DFT?

If the carb is complete with the choke linkage, it will be easier to pull the carb off.

Thanks Joe and Dan. Just had the bike running out in the driveway with air cleaner off to see if I can see anything looking down the throttle throat. The top of the butterfly is wet but that is probably normal. Otherwise nothing looks unusual.

The bike is running very well; crisp throttle response, smooth idle. I don't think I'm jump into messing with this carb for now. I have it back in the garage on the centre stand and I will see if it smells like gas. I think I had it on the side stand when it smelled like gas. Also I could shut petcock off after a ride just before shutting it down.

BTW, I came across something that said the DFT 32/32 came as OE on the 1981 Ford Escort. If you go to Rock Auto, they have complete overhaul kits for about $10.

This is the carb they show for an '81 Escort on the RA site. It sure looked is like my carb.

I see to that they sell the bowl vent solenoid. So maybe if I had a solenoid that work so that the bowl fumes are sucked into the engine instead of to the outside air them I wouldn't get the gas smell. :headscratch: just think'n

I would agree if I knew what triggered the valve to open and close? Does it only close after power is off and open when power is applied (key switch) or is there something else that keeps an eye on it and opens and closes it?

Looks like Dan or Joe are going to have to buy an '81 Escort so we can study it. :smilie_happy: :smilie_happy:
