Electric Choke adjustment: rich and lean extremes
In this video, I am purposely changing the rich/lean adjustment wildly in order to show the effect. Your actual adjustments would not be this extensive, but if your engine is loading up and not running very well, the choke or an aspect of it's systems may be the culprit.

How to measure and adjust Quadrajet float level
I have had several requests for this, so here you go: 1. The airhorn has to be removed to do this, but the carburetor does not have to be removed from the engine. 2. Some data says to measure from the toe(end that is opposite from the hinge), some say 5/16 inward from the end, etc. I suggest following the specs for your particular carburetor. 3. With the float in the raised position and the inlet needle lightly seated, measure from the top of the float to the top edge of the carburetor with NO gasket in place. If you have to adjust the float, bend at the area that has the cutouts, 4, If you are experiencing flooding issues then it is an excellent time to install a new needle/seat and float and that should cure flooding problems that are not choke-related.

Quadrajet air leak fix and warped air horn repair tutorial.
How to identify a Quadrajet with a warped air horn without diss assembly or running it on a car. These tips would have saved me time and money which is why I made this video. I also discus how to repair a warped air horn and prevent your air horn from warping in the first place. If you have a whistling noise just off idle then you got some work to do. You will never get your engine tuned right, your cold start performing or decent fuel economy unless your four barrel carburetor is just right. Special thanks to Cliff Ruggles for his book Rochester Quadrajet carburetors and to my brother Adrian who spent hours on tuning and fitting. See this video for description of the technique I used to straighten a warped air horn. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_SgQiVf3_0&feature=youtu.be here is a technique for re-bushing the throttle shaft without drilling. http://rmcavoy.freeshell.org/Q_Jet_bushings.html
