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...
