More Quadrajet tuning, some things! Part two in this Saga Sept 13, 2010
With the camera sitting on the oil filler cap a few more things to show how a metering rod system works on a carburetor. 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!

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!
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.
