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 measure and adjust Quadrajet float level
I have had several requests for this, so here you go: 1. The airhorn has to be removed to do this, but the carburetor does not have to be removed from the engine. 2. Some data says to measure from the toe(end that is opposite from the hinge), some say 5/16 inward from the end, etc. I suggest following the specs for your particular carburetor. 3. With the float in the raised position and the inlet needle lightly seated, measure from the top of the float to the top edge of the carburetor with NO gasket in place. If you have to adjust the float, bend at the area that has the cutouts, 4, If you are experiencing flooding issues then it is an excellent time to install a new needle/seat and float and that should cure flooding problems that are not choke-related.

Let's take a look inside





New quadrajet set up
New air-gap manifold and custom/rebuilt q-jet. Sounds good but I still need to set the timing on the distributor and the carb is tuned already. Hope you like, nothing to fancy just a few revs and walk around...the Exhaust is true dual no x/h pipe and it has cherry bomb glasspacks(3 inch)





750 vs. 800cfm Rochester Quadrajets-how to tell them apart
There exists a ton of misinformation regarding the actual airflow capacity of the Rochester Quadrajet. Not many people know how many variations there are or how to tell them apart. Here is a simple video explaining how to identify each size based on casting design. I will cover the "cfm-limited" carbs in a separate video.

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.

More Quadrajet tuning, some things! Part one in this saga on Sept 13, 2010
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!
