Ok, so following the tutorial on this forum I decided to try to clean my carburetor. As far as I know it has never been cleaned and the Vespa has 14.700km.
I unplugged the two main air tubes… and on the bottom a little tube got disconnected. What is it for?

So far inside has a lot of crusty grime on it.

I will clean ot with carb cleaner, avoiding the rubber gasket, and the. Some ultrasonic bath


The tube. What is it for?




Look at this! It is like biscuit


And its soup

That's the float bowl drain tube. It will need securing with a spring clip.
