How To Install A Weber Carburetor
I show how to install a Weber Carb on a Mazda B2200, This applies for other
trucks too. Not all adapters are the same, but it does install the same. I
also give info on how to adjust this carb and some info on it.

HOLLEY CARB FLOODING & HARD STARTING SOLUTIONS
Edelbrock 600 cfm manual choke cable bracket
The electric choke on my 600 cfm Edelbrock carb failed. So instead of
spending $70 to replace it, I installed a manual choke cable for $8.
Edelbrock doesn't offer a manual choke cable bracket, so I fabricated one.
street avenger holley bog problem explained!
everyone has always complained about these being highly untuneable. i have
had two and agree but have located the problem. this is an explanation of
what i show in vid please read!!!!!
There are 3 problems on the Street Avengers that cause the stumbles and
1. Lean Jetting. The S/A carbs are jetted very lean on the primary side,
and extremely lean on the secondary side. Bump primary jetting up about 3
jet sizes and then make the secondary jets 8 sizes larger than the
resulting primaries. To save a few bucks on jets, take the jets out of the
secondary side and install them in the primary, and then just buy a pair of
jets for the secondary side. This gets the carb jetted about right and will
do wonders for throttle response and power.
2. Accel pump lever not touching pump cam. I see this constantly on the
S/A carbs, and it's really lousy assembly work at the factory: The accel
pump lever that connects between the pump cam and the accel pump arm does
not ride on the pump cam at idle. The lever is riding on top of the
throttle shaft spring and is not touching the pump cam. Only after you
rotate the throttle a bit (with no accel pump action) will the pump cam
touch the lever and produce a pump shot. To fix this, remove the lever and
bend the lever a little more right where you see the "kick-up" bend in the
lever where it's supposed to ride on the cam. By giving the lever more of a
bend, the lever will not hit the shaft spring and will ride on the pump cam
right where it should. This will produce an instant pump shot off idle, and
will solve most of the hesitation/stumble issues associated with these
carbs. Keep in mind that you will need to re-adjust the accel pump lash
adjustment after you bend the arm.
3. Inadequate secondary idle speed setting. On most S/A carbs, the
secondary throttle (idle speed) is fully closed. This causes the primary
idle speed setting to get cranked up too far in order to achieve a
reasonable idle speed, thus exposing too much of the primary transition
slot. This, in turn, will cause an off-idle stumble due to lack of
transition fuel enrichment as the throttle is opened. The primary and
secondary throttles should be open the same amounts at idle - they should
be balanced and see equal airflow.
Forget about swapping pump cams and accel pump nozzles - that's not the
issue, and it won't solve your problems. Fix the pump lever geometry
