Hi Guys!

I have a Vespa GT 125 (2006) and I decided to replace the fuel and vacuum lines. All went well until I've accidentally switched the 2 hoses on the fuel pump… I started to crank and when I realized there is something wrong, I've already pumped gasoline through the vacuum line into the combustion chamber.
After this I've removed the fuel and vacuum lines again to dry them out. I disconnected the carburetor from the intake manifold (because I don't have that specific tool to remove the intake manifold) and pushed in a hose to suck out as much gasoline as possible. I guess I couldn't push the hose all the way in because of the intake valve, but I can't see.

Do you think I made any permanent damage? Is there anything I should do besides waiting to dry out over time?

I would appreciate any opinions/ideas.

Thanks,
George

Just wait for it all to evaporate. Not a big deal.

Pull the spark plug and crank over the motor. That will pump out any excess fluid. Wait 10 minutes and then reinstall.

You might think about changing the oil early.

If enough gasoline got past the piston down into the oil sump, it could have diluted the oil a bit. Did your oil level increase much?

Glad it's running well.

That should all evaporate off and get sucked into the intake within a few miles of getting fully warmed up.
