Prairie 360 carb

Prairie 360 keihin cvk 34
I was cleaning the carb and i drop the needle jet (see image), now I’m not sure how it goes, the longest part goes toward the jet needle and the shortest in contact with the air bleed pipe or the contrary?
Thanks a lot for the help-

I know on my Prairie 400 it only fit in one way, when I tried to reverse it, the assy wouldn't go back together properly. I just checked my manual and it says to drop it in so that the smaller diameter end goes in first. Even though I have a 400, it's got the same carb as your's. Hope that helps.

Thanks dirtdemond, yes my service manual says the same thing, but thats part of the confusion, because they don't tell if it is the internal or external diamenter, the internal diameter is short in the shortest part, and more diameter in the longest, but in this one the external diameter is very little short i think. It works fine but i'm afraid, that in the long time it can damage the needle or get stuck, and have any problems there in the montain.
Hey those guys that clean up they carbs, nobody remember how it goes?
Thanks

It would be the external diameter and if I'm not mistaken it's the longer side goes in first. Also, if you look at the ends you'll see that one end is flat and the other is slightly tapered inward which the air tube seats against, that end of the air tube is tapered to the outside, I'm guessing it's that way to keep the two of them perfectly alligned.

Hello,

im sorry for bumping up this "old" thread, but I happen to have the same problem that you had, except that I've aswell lost the needle jets somewhere.
Do you guys happen to have any tips where to find those? Same carb that you have ofc.
We actually dont have decent dealership here in Finland for Kawas and its nearly impossible to find any spareparts from here.

yours,

luikki
