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!

See 1976 Chevrolet pickup with Rochester quadrajet upgrade on SBC 350 V8. We removed the hood, mounted a camera looking down on the air horn, and took it for a spin, running wide open on an uphill grade. See how the secondary air valve responds to rpm drop at each upshift of the THM. Also included is a smoking burnout.

Time-Lapse Carburettor Swap on a 1968 Pontiac Firebird
Recently I fitted a second-hand Quadrajet carburettor to my 1968 Pontiac Firebird. Much to my surprise the car actually started, idled and ran. Unfortunately the Quadrajet developed some fuel leaks, however, and ideally needed a rebuild. For the duration I decided to put my original Edelbrock carburettor back on so I could continue to use the car while deciding what to do with the Quadrajet. That's what you'll see happening in this video. If you're wondering why I remove the studs after reinstalling them, it's because I previously had a spacer plate installed which needed long manifold studs. As a result, when I put the carburettor back without the spacer, the studs were too long and I wouldn't have been able to bolt the carburettor back down. I didn't want to use the spacer plate for now, so I had to cobble together a selection of temporary fasteners. I'll be getting some properly sized studs in due course...

OLDSMOBILE 455 W-43 EXPERIMENTAL HEMI AND OTHER EXOTIC ENGINES - THE JOHN BELTZ YEARS PHOTO TRIBUTE
John Beltz was Oldsmobile's chief engineer in 1964 and one of the prime movers of the Toronado and 442 project. Beltz was promoted to Oldsmobile general manager at age 43 in 1969 when Harold N. Metzel retired. Beltz passed away in May of 1972 from cancer at the age of 46. John Beltz is leaning on a dual fan 455 Olds and posing with other experimental Olds engines that never saw production. Here are descriptions of these engines: 1. The 0W-43 all aluminum 455 with 4 valve per cylinders, four overhead cam Weber engine. With a redline of just under 8,500rpm it was originally conceived for CAN AM racing. At 3,000rpm it put out 300hp and at 6,000rpm registered over 600hp. The top output recorded for this engine in the Lansing Dyno facility was 700 real hp at 6,800rpm. Tests were run with both carbueration and fuel injection. The block was cast from Reynolds 356 alloy and fitted with pressed-in dry steel cylinder liners for the Forged-True 12.20to 1 pistons. Billet steel connecting rods by Carillo was used along with a forged steel crank. The engine weighed in at 50 pounds lighter than the production 455 motor! It was developed at the same time as the ZL-1 Chevy 427 motor. 2. The W-43 4 valve per cylinder 455 developed by JOHN BELTZ , LLOYD GILL , JOE JONES AND FRANK BALL. Rated at 500-550hp with a single Rochester Quadrajet on an aluminum manifold. Constructed with both cast iron heads and block and with aluminum-alloy block and heads 75 pounds lighter than the conventional 455 production engine. Engine featured four valves per cylinder with narrowed angles for a super efficient combustion chamber design, central spark plugs and could easily be adapted for chain for gear driven overhead camshafts. 455 engine had 4.625inch cylinder centers, a 4.125 bore and 4.250 stroke. Making use of the 3inch main bearings and 2.50 inch rod journals, the engine was fitted with a specially prepared cast crank fitted with SAE-1140 forged steel rods, forged 10.20-to-1 pistons which rode on Morraine 400 bearings. Four bolt main block boasted 2 additional 5/8inch drain holes. Four valve heads featured 1.750inch intake valves (SAE-8640 steel) with 22 degree stems and 1.375 Exhaust (214-N stainless steel) with 15 degree stems, special Stellite seats, bronze alloy guides, o ring plug tubes, 14mm spark plugs, 3/8 inch pushrods and aluminum rocker arms. (Of all the experimental Olds engines, this one came the closest to production and there are photos of this engine in street gear. MAY 71 HOT ROD MAGAZINE features some of these engines and the sadness of the Olds engineers of that time of how they would never be released.) 3. 455 dual turbocharged CAN AM ROCKET CHALLENGE. 659hp @ 6250rpm. 554lbs torque @ 6,250 rpm. Alloy block with 4 bolt mains. Forged steel crankshaft. Forged True pistons with 8.5 to 1 compression. 3inch main journals. 2.499inch rod journals. Carillo billet steel rods. alloy heads. 2inch intake valves. 1.625inch Exhaust valves. Crower roller camshaft with 555inch lift and 320 degrees duration. Dual TRW-375-E-10 turbochargers with Boost Wastegate 10and 1/2psi. Lucas fuel injection. Olds alloy intake. Competed with big block Chevy Mclarens and Porsche Panzers in CAN AM racing circa 68-69. This video is merely a couple of old magazine pages strung together with the exception of that blue 455 hemi which was found on the internet. Thats BRUCE MCLAREN in that green can am race car which is Olds powered. AT THE BEGINNING OF THE VIDEO JOHN BELTZ IS POSING WITH SOME ENGINES FEATURED IN THE JULY 1969 ISSUE OF HOT ROD MAGAZINE AND THE BLUE OLDSMOBILE 455 HEMI WAS FEATURED IN THE MAY 1971 ISSUE OF HOT ROD MAGAZINE. The incidental music I overlayed onto this video was muted by youtube.

A Pontiac 400 bored .030" over so now a 406 with comp cams extreme energy hydraulic cam and lifters, roller timing chain and roller rockers. Lightened and balanced Scat crank. Ignition upgraded to MSD HEI with Accel 8.8 mm sprial core wires. 6X-4 heads ported and port matched to ported factory dual plane intake manifold. Factory 750 CFM Quadrajet reworked by Cliff Ruggles performance.





87 Built Camaro
this is my 87 Camaro its been built up for dragging front and rear fenders arent steel, they're lightened for less weight battery located in trunk... 350 engine with lunisti cams a nice quadrajet carb k & N filtercharger, full MSD ignition set at 7 advanced multiple sparks some custom tachs , 5 speed hurst shifter this shit is fast and I love it, 3rd gen Camaros all the way





New quadrajet set up
New air-gap manifold and custom/rebuilt q-jet. Sounds good but I still need to set the timing on the distributor and the carb is tuned already. Hope you like, nothing to fancy just a few revs and walk around...the Exhaust is true dual no x/h pipe and it has cherry bomb glasspacks(3 inch)

Most relaxing sound for men - Old-School American V8 Corvette C3 1979 (Stingray)
Includes Cold engine idle, warm idle and a bit of revving to about 4500 RPM. I decided to create this video since my Vette now sounds quite loud thanks to the Cherrybomb glasspack Exhaust and removal of the catalyst. The Exhaust is basically stock. I think this is one of the most relaxing sounds for men who are into cars and machines :) Engine: 5.7 L (350 cid) V8 L-48 Transmission: Warner 4-Speed Manual My Corvette is generally in very good condition and it has already been restored once in USA some years before it arrived in our country. I got the car in a state where the exterior + drivetrain were fine, but the interior needed new carpet, some painting and several other components in order to look great. I'm now pretty much done with the interior. The engine used to have issues but those were mostly external (bad thermostat housing, bad spark plug wires etc.). By now the engine is a pleasure to drive, but the Rochester Quadrajet carburetor has hard time keeping the pre-selected idle speed and sometimes wants to hold it higher, then lower. It might be also some extra fuel leaking in from somewhere occasionally. There used to be some vacuum leaks but I've taken care of them. Perhaps I will replace the intake + carb with an Edelbrock setup for next driving season. The engine compression has been measured recently and the results were perfect for all cylinders. NB! We will soon try to film the Vette from another car when driving on a motorway. I'm hoping to get some good footage that way.
