Working on the 72 CL450 project bike.

Quadruple double rats. Was removing the old fuel line. Right one was no problem. But when I went to remove the left fuel line, the fuel line fitting came out of the carb.

Have I ruined the carb & need to go hunting for a replacement? Or how do I properly reattach the fitting?

It is a press fit, some have used JB weld, just lightly, some have expanded the fitting so it presses in snugly.

I used a few light taps straight on with a very small hammer with my 450 (and sloper, as a preventative measure) carbs. That method worked well with my cheap chinesium fuel taps too (which work well enough, BTW). I've not needed jbweld, yet...Just glad those 'pipes' are brass.
