How to de-bog your Quadrajet part 1
Sorry guys, I got the videos a bit out of order. The Rochester Quadrajet has gotten a bad rap over the years, often called a Quadrabog or Quadrajunk. In fact, this is a great multipurpose carbureter once you understand how they work and what not to do to them. In this clip I introduce you to the Quadrajet and begin explaining the theory of operation of these units. Enjoy!

How to adjust carburetor mixture screws
Here's how to find and adjust the mixture screws on your carburetor. Note that metering-block style carbs such as Holley and Demon more often have one or 2 mixture screws in each metering block depending on the number of venturi. Also those may not be located at the bottom of the carb as in factory carburetors.





How to adjust Quadrajet/Dualjet fast idle
Quadrajet/Dualjet Rochesters have a fast idle adjustment screw that is separate from the base idle screw. Here's how to locate it. Note: Ever since Charter "fixed" my internet and cable after the lightning strike, it hasn't worked right. Go figure. So, if you see this posted then I was finally successful in getting a video uploaded.





Rochester Quadrajet, the results!
Two mishaps, the first shown here, the choke coil I got was wound backwards, it made the choke butterfly wind up TIGHTER as the engine warmed up. I swapped on the one from the old carburetor fast enough, the second mishap made me feel like a crud and what did I mess up later that evening. The car would not start leaving the Etobicoke -Queensway show. It was not getting gas. We got it running by priming the carburetor, and boy, was I ticked at myself. In the end it was not my fault it looks like. The new accelerator pump umbrella and rod was a very poor and frail design, the umbrella came detached and stayed at the bottom of the of the pump well, and was a distressed mess. The maker will get a note from me. The upshot? The old assembly went in, all is perfectly fine, the slight tip-in hesitation is gone now too. Stupid lack of pride it seems these days making parts for even simple things like an old carburetor.





More Quadrajet tuning, some things! Part one in this saga on Sept 13, 2010
The car has a slight stumble and surge at a light throttle cruise at about 55 to 60 MPH. By swapping out the .050 metering rods to .048 units, the stumble and driveability concerns are now gone. Going richer would mean worse fuel mileage one may think? No! Now that the mixture is right, LESS throttle opening is needed now, which means higher vacuum, and this way the metering rods will block off the correct amount of fuel, and in the proper timing and percentages, so the car runs much smoother. As stated many times, patience and reading up on, and understanding how these intricate carburetors work will help out very much! Enjoy!





how to minimize engine bog with a Quadrajet carb
this is to minimize engine bog when the pedal is to the metal. do not over tighten, very small spring...you want to try 1/4 turns or 1/2...q-jets are good if tuned properly. also when you are tightening screw it will have tension on it so keep the screwdriver firm. 1986 gmc sierra single straightpipe to cherrybomb. you will need a small flathead screwdriver and a 3/32 allen key. be sure not to tighten to much or else your vacuum secondary flaps wont open.

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.





How to adjust Quadrajet secondary air doors
These take some trial and error to get them adjusted so that there is no bog, but it's not hard to do-here's how.





Identifying Quadrajet vacuum ports
I always see a lot of questions about what various vacuum ports do on a Quadrajet. Here's a general guide that will point you in the right direction. Remember that there were many different Qjets over the years and vacuum port locations and number will vary. This video is representative of 1975-90 carbs. Enjoy!
