Electric Choke adjustment: rich and lean extremes
In this video, I am purposely changing the rich/lean adjustment wildly in order to show the effect. Your actual adjustments would not be this extensive, but if your engine is loading up and not running very well, the choke or an aspect of it's systems may be the culprit.





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 THAT THE CHOKE ITSELF MUST BE WORKING IN ORDER FOR THE FAST IDLE TO FUNCTION.





750 vs. 800cfm Rochester Quadrajets-how to tell them apart
There exists a ton of misinformation regarding the actual airflow capacity of the Rochester Quadrajet. Not many people know how many variations there are or how to tell them apart. Here is a simple video explaining how to identify each size based on casting design. I will cover the "cfm-limited" carbs in a separate video.

'77 Chevy K20: Quadrajet Choke Pull Off and Fast Idle Cam Observations
1977 Chevy K20. 350 crate engine. Rochester Quadrajet 4MV carburetor with divorced choke. Truck suffers from unexplained hesitation and bogging when in forward gears. Tends to rev just fine after a few minutes of mixed idling and high revving. Checking choke operations as well as a possible sticky fast idle cam as part of the process of elimination. - Truck is allowed to idle/warm up until 2:25 mark, at which point the engine is revved to about 2,000 rpm, and can be heard bogging (a hissing sound can be heard). The fast idle cam is seen dropping. Fuel flow can be seen in the glass-cased fuel filter right before the carb as remaining steady. - The engine is revved again about three more time up until 3:00 minute mark. The engine revs slightly higher, but the hissing and bogging can still be heard. - Engine is revved again at the 3:35 mark, slightly past the 3,000 rpm mark. Hesitation and hissing still evident, but less so than before. - Engine revved at the 4:25 mark to about 4,000 rpm. No hesitation or hissing heard. - Transmission is slowly shift through every gear starting at 4:55 mark. Shifted back into Park at 5:05 mark. - Engine revved again at 5:10 and 5:17 marks to 4,000 rpm. No hesitation or hissing is heard.

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.





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.





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!





Carburetor FAIL
My Rochester 2 Jet carburetor was having fuel regurgitation issues. I cleaned up the carb and rebuilt it. Everything went smoothly with the rebuild and everything was adjusted to spec. Carburetor still barfs out fuel. Really stumped on why it's doing this. This was my first carb re-build and my experience is limited.





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.
