I read that and i just had exactly the opposite on a CV carb
hard to start bike but eventually did and no fuel from pump accelerator nozzle. Reason was gummed up ball bearing under brass nozzle.(after checking diaphragm first)
Pulled out cleaned and she's a squirter.

I believe that's called the Grose jet, and yeah, that is a common gumming area. I would spray that out with some 2+2 or the like for starts.

Also, some fuckface wrote this: https://www.jockeyjournal.com/forum/...d.php?t=211769

Maybe that might help you some.

This may sound rudimentary, but you do have good fuel flow from the tank?
Plugged filter....collapsed or rotted fuel line?
Lots of fuel in the tank(creating a pressure, somewhat)?

Does the piston slide up and down easily and is the correct oil inside so it dampens the movement and seals it? Do you pull enough vacuum to even make it slide. Have you tried to tickle it by squirting raw gas in side the manifold before a starting attempt?

Rivera's Eliminator II is not supposed to run ANY oil in the damper.

I just looked for my instruction sheet but couldn't find it. I'm certain the instructions that came with min said no oil.

I think they recommend a spritz of WD40.

But the point is a good one... I have run into these where moisture between the alu slide and alu body has oxidized the piston in place.
