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.

Auto Repair & Maintenance : How to Adjust Carburetors
Idle speed and idle mixture are the two most common adjustments made to carburetors, and these adjustments start by warming up the vehicle to full engine-operating temperature. Find out how to perform a lean-drop adjustment with help from an ASE-certified master automobile technician in this free video on carburetors.

How a carburetor works, schemes and explanations
This video explains, not in too much detail, how a 28mm Walbro diaphragm carburetor works (using mainly schemes to point out what happens inside). It explains what occurs at the venturi, what the butterfly valve is for, how the needle doses the amount of fuel, and how does the diaphragm slide adjust itself.





DIY Carburetor Synchronize / Balance Tool
This is a homemade bottle style carburetor synchronization tool ( homemade manometer ) and balancing tool. If you are going to attempt to, or want to know how to sync your carburetors, there are a few things to know first. 1. Carburetor Synchronization = Adjusting your carburetor throttle plates or throttle slides so they move from your carburetors idle setting to wide open throttle simultaneously, or in sync with each other. 2. Balancing Carburetors = Adjusting your carburetors so they allow each cylinder to flow or pull the same amount of air and fuel at your desired idle speed. Carburetor sync and carburetor balancing go hand in hand. 3. Idle speed screw adjustments must be made at normal operation temperatures. 4. Air fuel mixture screw adjustments must be made at normal operating temperatures. 5. Air fuel mixture adjustments only affect your carburetors pilot circuit, which means from idle to part throttle. Air fuel mixture screw adjustments have zero effect on wide open throttle. 6. Carburetor running rich = Too much gas not enough air. Carburetor running lean = Too much air not enough gas. 7. Wide open throttle rich or lean conditions are adjusted two ways: A. Carburetors with throttle slides have a clip on the carburetor main jet needle. Raising the main jet needle clip drops the needle deeper into the main jet and will lean the carburetor out. Lowering the main jet needle clip will raise the needle and enrich your carburetors mix. B. Carburetors with throttle plates (butterfly style) need to have the carburetors main jet changed to a larger diameter jet to richen the mix or a smaller diameter jet to lean your mix. 8. If your engine will not idle correctly or your air fuel mixture screws seem to have no affect on the engine at idle, then most likely your pilot jet circuit is clogged and you should clean it. The snowmobile in the video is a 1986 Arctic cat cougar 500 fan cooled, it has Mikuni vm34 roundslide carburetors which have a primer nipple on the engine side of the throttle slide. Perfect place to attach a homemade manometer to balance everything. These mikuni vm34 roundslide carburetors were common on many motorcycles, snowmobiles and atv's. Suzuki, yamaha, polaris, arctic cat, all used them at one time or another, they are good carburetors when they are dialed in.





Setting the timing and adjusting the carb
Set the timing by ear, and got the idle slowed down so I could do a little adjusting on the carb. I'll do more when it's cold, so I can set the choke and all. Love the way it's sounding..

How Motorcycle Carburetors work and how to tune and clean them
Here's a link to the kind of carb cleaner I like best (it IS the best) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002ERT666/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=U TF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B002ERT666&linkCode=as2&tag=httpww wyou00f-20 hey... awesome video..nicely explained ! just one question. Please do tel me wts AIR NEEDLE and LOW JET used for again. ? i mean how and what do they work? thanx :) Reply · The air needle is like a transitional restriction to increase vacuum pressure and tapered to prime the main jet flow gradually to ramp up fuel flow from the idle/low circuit to the main circuit. Think of the circuits like gears or stairs. The needle covers transition between 3rd gear to about 5th gear on a six speed. It overlaps basically. Fuel is getting by it from the idle/low- on through to where it's completely out of the way of the main jet and the main jet fuel flow is roaring like the straw/compressor example. Without the needle the carb would work, but not as smoothly through middle throttle (where most people ride and have the most fine input or throttle roll back and forth. The low jet is like second gear on a transmission. You can shift from 1st to 3rd, but again you risk stalling and it won't be as smooth. Also there isn't really the mechanical inertia to carry the process on like you have with a rolling vehicle with a flywheel on the engine and the wheels turning. The pistons still create vacuum every other time they go down, but air just doesn't have the punch that steel does when in motion. The circuits in a carburetor have to be there or you would have a limit on RPM range. An idle jet can't deliver enough fuel to really scream, and the main jet couldn't go slow and would be VERY hard to start because the engine would have to be spun up really fast. So you have usually four or five circuits (I want to say jets, but their physically different) that get air flow like stairs as the throttle opens. They are typically 1. Starting circuit (choke on) 2. Idle circuit 3. low jet 4. Jet Needle 5. Main jet.
