Carburetor Selection & What a Carburetor Does - Summit Racing Quick Flicks
A carburetor is an air valve that controls the amount of air and fuel
entering the engine.
The positioning of the butterfly in carburetor dictates how much air and
fuel enter the engine. CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), as described in the
video, defines the amount of air and fuel passing through the carburetor.
There are three factors when deciding which carburetor is right for your
1. Engine cubic inch displacement (CID)
2. Maximum rpm
3. How will the vehicle will be used
The formula for selecting the proper CFM is:
CID x Maximum RPM x Volume Efficiency / 3456

How to Install an Edelbrock Carburator on Chevy 350 Engine by Howstuffinmycarworks
In this video Chris explains how to install a 750 cfm Edelbrock carburetor
on a Chevy 350 Engine. This particular engine sits in a Chevy S-10 Pick-up.
The Engine has 11 1/2 Compression ratio and it produces 450 horsepower at the wheels, it
has a long duration and high lift camshaft profile that makes it very fuel
thirsty. A 750 cfm carb is perfect for this engine straight out of the box
without needing any modifications.
We normally run 110 octane race fuel on this Engine when we drive it
locally or at the race track.
When we take it on long trips and we don't want to deal with the hassle of
transporting fuel we retard the timing 5 degrees and we run 95 octane pump
gas, to avoid blowing the Engine up we keep the RPM's at 6,000 when
running the truck on 95 octane pump gas.
Visit the tool section in our online store, we have all the tools that were
used in the video available at very low prices:
