Carb syncing tool.

Has anyone made a tool to sync the carbs on an 1100 Silverado? I made one to do the carbs on a 650 vstar custom. I got the instructions off of 650 vstar cc&d forum, which I can't seem to find now.

I've never made one but I saw plenty of how tos on YouTube. Just google DIY Manometer and you should get plenty of hits.

$1.55 Carb Sync Tool by Marty Ignazito ATF or any thin oil will work in the tubes. an old pair of pilot jets will prevent the fluid from jumping

you can get a pair of vacuum gauges from harbor freight for about $20

and not have to mess with tubes or liquids, or worry about sucking the water into your carbs....

$30 for two...

I have made one similar to the Marty one. I used 1/4" tubing, mounted to a board with 1/8" tube going to the carbs.The hose barbs that connect to the vacuum lines have been soldered shut and a tiny [I think a#62 drill] hole drilled. If the hole is too big the ATF will bounce too much to get a good reading.
It is very accurate and only took about an hour to build . When I'm not using it, it hangs out of the way on a wall.

I made one using 2 jars with ATF in them, it works but it quickly empties one jar making it difficult to adjust the carbs. I think I will switch over to the vacuum gauges mentioned above.
