    1985 eliminator zl900. I had this bike for a number of years, but the bike has sat for 3 or so year. I'm trying to get it running again. So this is what I've done so far.
    1. I took the carb out and clean up all the jets & bowls.
    2. The fuel mixture screw I set to 2 1/8 turns out like the manual said.
    3. I've repaired the tank pit cock valve.
    I reinstalled the carb but not sure about one of the hoses connections placement.
    1. I have a vent hose that is tee connecting one and four carb. Number two carb is connected to the canister.
    So my question is I have another vent hoes that come from the canister vent side, dose that go on to the main pit cock on the fuel tank. Because gas come out of the canister.
    If any one has pictures for the tank pit cock and from the top of the carb that would be very helpful.

    Thank Bryan

    Number 2 carb should go to the petcock while the tee-d 1&4 lines go to the smog valve.

    Connects to the carbs. The connection point is on the bottom, between the middle carbs.

    A fuel filter will be installed between this line and petcock.
