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.

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.

Most relaxing sound for men - Old-School American V8 Corvette C3 1979 (Stingray)
Includes Cold engine idle, warm idle and a bit of revving to about 4500 RPM. I decided to create this video since my Vette now sounds quite loud thanks to the Cherrybomb glasspack Exhaust and removal of the catalyst. The Exhaust is basically stock. I think this is one of the most relaxing sounds for men who are into cars and machines :) Engine: 5.7 L (350 cid) V8 L-48 Transmission: Warner 4-Speed Manual My Corvette is generally in very good condition and it has already been restored once in USA some years before it arrived in our country. I got the car in a state where the exterior + drivetrain were fine, but the interior needed new carpet, some painting and several other components in order to look great. I'm now pretty much done with the interior. The engine used to have issues but those were mostly external (bad thermostat housing, bad spark plug wires etc.). By now the engine is a pleasure to drive, but the Rochester Quadrajet carburetor has hard time keeping the pre-selected idle speed and sometimes wants to hold it higher, then lower. It might be also some extra fuel leaking in from somewhere occasionally. There used to be some vacuum leaks but I've taken care of them. Perhaps I will replace the intake + carb with an Edelbrock setup for next driving season. The engine compression has been measured recently and the results were perfect for all cylinders. NB! We will soon try to film the Vette from another car when driving on a motorway. I'm hoping to get some good footage that way.
