    No fuel in bowl

    Hi. This is my first post. I am trying to restore a cm 250c 1982 Honda. Cleaned all the jets and carb but seems like the fuel is not going to the bowl. Took the carb off and tried blowing on the gas fitting but plugged. Is theren a way to unplug it ? tryed using carb cleaner to blast it open buy just sprayed back . Or is it something i am missing. I am a newbie so i am just learning.... Thank you.

    Hate to ask the obvious, but did you verify fuel flow from the petcock.

    bowl

    Yes i have one of those iv tanks because no tank on bike yet. But unhooked the gas line from the little tank and fuel comes out. When it was hooked to the carb i loosened the bowl drain all the way and no fuel.....Thanks for your reply !

    Remove the float bowl, then remove the float and float valve. If you have access to an air compressor, blow from where the float valve goes into the seat. If no air, try spraying carb cleaner the same direction, or, use a flexible wire or guitar string to work whatever is in there out.
