How to adjust carburetor mixture screws

Clean a Carburetor Without Rebuilding it and Save Money
Do you own a car or truck that has a carburetor. Are you trying to get your
car to pass a smog check. Do you think you need a tune up.
Have you noticed that on youtube that other videos show you how to clean
the carburetor choke, but that does not clean anything inside the
carburetor. So the other videos don't really help you make your car run
In this example the Holley 2150 2 barrel carburetor, on a 1979 FORD 302 or
5.0 litter engine.
How to clean a carburetor cheaply and without having to remove it from the
engine. This is a way that I avoided having to rebuild my carburetor due to
it not working correctly. The problem that I had with mine was that when I
gave it the gas it had a dead spot. In other words I'd be going along and
give it the gas and it would cough and stall. A friend showed me that by
only squirting carburetor cleaner into the fuel bowl and running the engine
that it would clean it out.
I tried what he told me to do. I ran about half a can of carb cleaner
through the carburetor with the engine running and then went for a drive. I
got down the road about a mile and entered into the freeway. There was a
car coming fast and I was not up to speed and I gave it the gas and it
stalled like it used to. I put the transmission into 2nd gear and floored
it and that blew out what ever was plugging it up and it has run like new
since. This solved the problem I was having, does it sound like a problem
you have. Give it a try.
If you try this and it works then you have fixed your problem for under 5
dollars, and won't spend hundreds of dollars having a mechanic work on your
car. It also helps if you do this before going for a smog check, it will
help you pass.
