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.

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.





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.

How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems. This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine. For more information on diagnosing engine performance issues, check out this article I wrote. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-performance-issues The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay Dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.
