How to de-bog your Quadrajet part 2

The Rochester Quadrajet has gotten a bad rap over the years, but it's actually an excellent carburetor once you understand how they work. Often referred to as "Quadrabog" or "Quadrajunk", many of the issues these units suffer stem from neglect, or "modifications" that do more harm than good. Being a spreadbore, air-valve secondary design, the Quadrajet is capable of flowing 750 or 800 cfm of airflow, eliminating the need to buy different carburetors when your set-up changes. In addition, the small primaries make for great drivability and fuel economy. In this clip, I'll discuss theory of operation on the secondary side, since that's where most problems arise. So, leave your preconceived notions at the door and let's see what makes these carburetors tick.

Quadrajet air leak fix and warped air horn repair tutorial.
How to identify a Quadrajet with a warped air horn without diss assembly or running it on a car. These tips would have saved me time and money which is why I made this video. I also discus how to repair a warped air horn and prevent your air horn from warping in the first place. If you have a whistling noise just off idle then you got some work to do. You will never get your engine tuned right, your cold start performing or decent fuel economy unless your four barrel carburetor is just right. Special thanks to Cliff Ruggles for his book Rochester Quadrajet carburetors and to my brother Adrian who spent hours on tuning and fitting. See this video for description of the technique I used to straighten a warped air horn. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_SgQiVf3_0&feature=youtu.be here is a technique for re-bushing the throttle shaft without drilling. http://rmcavoy.freeshell.org/Q_Jet_bushings.html





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.

See how the secondary air valve responds to rpm drop at each upshift of the THM. Also included is a smoking burnout.
