Here is an item that
every carbureted Snowmobile,
Motorcycle, ATV and Watercraft should have.
an easy, neat clean way to drain your carburetor float bowls. Why
drain the float bowls, you say? The reasons are many. With
the quality of today's fuels, it doesn't take long for electrolytic
corrosion to start in your carbs (sludge). The average price a
shop would charge to clean your carbs is about $200.00 in round dollars
(ouch!). Water, alcohol, benzenes and other additives also tend to
settle out of your fuel. When your float bowls and water traps get
too full, engine damage may occur. Just a quick flick of the valve
will purge your carbs and keep you running safe and strong.
This is a high quality kit that contains everything you need for
installation (additional fuel taps required for carburetors without
water traps - see below photos). The valve body is chemical resistant nylon with a viton sealing ball rated at 125 psi.
This kit can also be used as
a crankcase drain.

Carburetors without water traps or to tap into Crank Case:

Installing 1/4 x 28 fitting into Float Bowl:
Drill and tap float bowl to 1/4 x 28 staying in between the floats. The lower on
the float bowl you can install the fittings, the better. JB weld may be used on
the outside of the fitting if desired.
Attach the drain kit to each 1/4 x
28 fitting. Cut any hose to the desired length.
Carburetors with water traps:
Water traps can be
identified as short pieces of hose usually 3” to 4” in length attached to the bottom of your
float bowls with a plug in the end of them.
Remove the water traps, attach the drain kit to the fittings your water traps were
on. Cut any hose to the desired length.
