Hey guys, I have a little problem. I removed my CV carb to rebuild it and when removing these 2 pieces fell out of? a hose? the carb? I just don't know. Cannot find on a diagram of carb also looked at VOES but not sure. I might mention this is a Calif. bike. 98 FXD please help where did this (checkvalve??) come from.

Feeling way stupid right about now...

The needle is the fuel inlet valve, sits on the tang of the float {allows/stops the flow of fuel}....the bushing goes in the top cover, under the bracket for cable{s}.

both wrong.. the needle is about 1/4th the size of the Harley needle valve. for some reason they had it in the overflow hose like a check valve.... I went to my local HD dealer and the parts guy says there is nothing like that in this shop. and the bike runs good. Now I need to do the stage 1 mods. get the 42 pilot and 180 main, needle etc...

I live in Ventura, cA so I am now talking with Dave Mackey about doing a megasphere kit to it.

Later dudes

If you are running a pipe, wouldn't you be better off with a 45 or 48 low speed jet. One of my bikes has the 45, and the other has the 48, both run well.

Hey, I just found the exact same brass bushing loose I think it was inside my top cover. Can't for the life of me think what it's doing there or where it goes back. You say it's part of the throttle cable bracket?

I know it's an old post, but almost freaked when I saw the pictures of the exact same bushing. Thanks.

edit update: Ok - the bushing is something to do with the top bracket the throttle cables hook to, just like fourcats stated.

The top one looks like the float valve for a briggs and stratten, the bottom one goes in the top cover under the throttle cable bracket as stated above, (the other tree screws are shouldered).

The bushing goes in the bolt hole on the carb top where the throttle cable support bracket attaches to one of the front bolts that retains the top cover ( closest to the engine) look at the carb in the parts book at the 4 screws that hold on the top cover, the other part is not harley

The needle looks like the check valve for the a/c pump.
That is located under the brass a/c pump nozzle, that
sticks up from the float bowl.
