Just restored a '67 CL 77
Have a question. Why is the carb float bowel drain plug cross drilled?

Hi

Wlecone to the Forum!

I think it is cross drilled so that you don't have to take the screw completey out to drain the carb.

As G Man says they are drilled so that you only have to loosen them but not take them right out to drain the float bowls.

If you ever drop the drain plug out of the LHS carb on your CL77 you'll be glad that they are made that way.

thanks , I appreciate the feedback. Both cross drills were completely gummed up so I cleaned them out. Now to see if they leak. might need new gaskets, these are only 52 yr old. Ha HA
I am lovin this 67. It was my first bike in 1967 and Ive been collecting parts and fiddling with it for 10 years.Now its a ground up full restoration. All parts are OEM except battery, tires, and vinyl on the seat cover. Carbs were Ultrasounded but I guess these drain plugs didnt get cleaned out. Appreciate your feed back and glad I found this site,
