it’s my first time working on diaphragms carb and I can’t find much info for the hb-A10 type. It’s the Standart for iame x30 175cc single speed. Is the rule of the thumb that if I’m around 10 psi at pop off and after that holds steady around 8 psi aply also in this carb??
For the x30 and the shifter 175 that works with the Hb-15 I have found some baseline documents but for the 10A seems difficult to find a lot except from the basic guide from iame that tells me only the baseline from the high and low needle screws.
One more question I have is. Which is the easy way to drain the fuel from the carb after use?? because I read it’s not good for the membranes to stay with fuel inside.
Last question is when I check the pop off pressure the carb should be drained of fuel and should I close the needle screws high and low before measurement?
You could apply basically the same setting as for the HW-27 carb.
As for pop off 9-10 psi seems right and steady at 8psi
The easiest way to drain the fuel is to remove airbox and then hookup pressure tester and apply pressure so that the valve opens and fuel comes out
When pressure test you could test directly at the valve with an adapter, you should drip some fluid into the valve before pressurizing and watch you eyes for squirting fuel! When fully assembled you should empty all the fuel first to check pressure, you don’t need to tighten needles since there is o-rings that seal them👍🏻 I never tighten them when I drove X30 when I tested pressure.
Pay attention to the cap as it could leak at the screw. Check with a bit saliva on the screw if you see bubbles when pressurizing
