Thats a zerk fitting,,drilling those is pretty hard to drill out....
What he said, or file or grind a little at the ball end and the ball and spring will fall out.Does that front piece with the ball unscrew, then you could take the spring & ball out, and put your hose over that part and the end into the manifold.
how did ya do it?Just establishing how to de ball a zerk,
Remember kids have your zerks spayed or neutered.
The brake caliper bleeder nipples work alot better,,,,,Ive used zerk fittinbgs,,brake bleeders,,barbed fittings of all sizes,,throttle cable elbows,,airchuck fittings,,drilled through screwsAt a hardware store they have brass barbed fitting, 1/4" & 5/16" with a 1/8 NPT male thread at the bottom. Drill and tap your intake manifold to a 1/8" NPT female thread, maybe some tape or sealer om the threads.
by sealer, do you mean locktite? or something like it. would most auto parts stores carry the brake caliper bleeder nipples? i went to AZ and them guys couldnt help me one bit. i walked out empty handed. CAM2, i know i ask for a lot but is there any way possible for you to show me a picture of exactly what i should take into the AZ to show them so that neither of us can screw it up this time.The brake caliper bleeder nipples work alot better,,,,,Ive used zerk fittinbgs,,brake bleeders,,barbed fittings of all sizes,,throttle cable elbows,,airchuck fittings,,drilled through screws
And Ive used sealer to seal the threads of all.............
The boost bottle enhances bottomend takeoff,,midrange power and offers a few extra revs on the topend....When you do the boost bottles,,lightened flywheel,,rocket key,velocity stack,,hp airfilter,hp exhaust,lightened and modded clutch then tune the engine in for the changes the results are like night and day without even bumping compression or doing any porting..............What kind of a gain like Horsepower or top end speed could you get from mastering your own boost bottle ? Say from a 50cc 2 stroke. Or what engine benefits most from the boost bottle ?
You need to grind out that protrusion so its smooth...........Ok, I have it all together and drilled and tapped the manifold. i have a question, my nipple is exposed on the inside of the manifold and i was wondering if that could block some air coming into the carb. I am wondering do you think i should grind the nipple down so that the manifold has more flow? or am i nuts???
here is a pic of my bottle and the manifold with the nipple.
another question is will my boost bottle work with the long tube i have on there or should i shorten it up? the bottle is about 4" in length with caps on, the tube is about 9" i would say.
nice, i wish id have done it that way too, now. thanksYou need to grind out that protrusion so its smooth...........
Heres how I modded a pumper carb intake to have a boost bottle nipple..
