DIY Carburetor Synchronize / Balance Tool
This is a homemade bottle style carburetor synchronization tool ( homemade
manometer ) and balancing tool. If you are going to attempt to, or want to
know how to sync your carburetors, there are a few things to know first.
1. Carburetor Synchronization = Adjusting your carburetor throttle plates
or throttle slides so they move from your carburetors idle setting to wide
open throttle simultaneously, or in sync with each other.
2. Balancing Carburetors = Adjusting your carburetors so they allow each
cylinder to flow or pull the same amount of air and fuel at your desired
idle speed. Carburetor sync and carburetor balancing go hand in hand.
3. Idle speed screw adjustments must be made at normal operation
4. Air fuel mixture screw adjustments must be made at normal operating
5. Air fuel mixture adjustments only affect your carburetors pilot circuit,
which means from idle to part throttle. Air fuel mixture screw adjustments
have zero effect on wide open throttle.
6. Carburetor running rich = Too much gas not enough air.
Carburetor running lean = Too much air not enough gas.
7. Wide open throttle rich or lean conditions are adjusted two ways:
A. Carburetors with throttle slides have a clip on the carburetor main
jet needle. Raising the main jet needle clip drops the needle deeper into
the main jet and will lean the carburetor out. Lowering the main jet needle
clip will raise the needle and enrich your carburetors mix.
B. Carburetors with throttle plates (butterfly style) need to have the
carburetors main jet changed to a larger diameter jet to richen the mix or
a smaller diameter jet to lean your mix.
8. If your engine will not idle correctly or your air fuel mixture screws
seem to have no affect on the engine at idle, then most likely your pilot
jet circuit is clogged and you should clean it.
The snowmobile in the video is a 1986 Arctic cat cougar 500 fan cooled, it
has Mikuni vm34 roundslide carburetors which have a primer nipple on the
engine side of the throttle slide. Perfect place to attach a homemade
manometer to balance everything. These mikuni vm34 roundslide carburetors
were common on many motorcycles, snowmobiles and atv's. Suzuki, yamaha,
polaris, arctic cat, all used them at one time or another, they are good
carburetors when they are dialed in.

How to Adjust the Valves on an Air-Cooled VW
How to adjust the valves without taking off the distributor cap or
otherwise consider the ignition. Watch the action of the valves, bring the
crank to TDC after you see the intake close. Won't be this easy if you have
a stock-bodied car / don't have easy access to the head and crank pulley at
the same time. This video was uploaded from an Android phone.
