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!

See 1976 Chevrolet pickup with Rochester quadrajet upgrade on SBC 350 V8. We removed the hood, mounted a camera looking down on the air horn, and took it for a spin, running wide open on an uphill grade. See how the secondary air valve responds to rpm drop at each upshift of the THM. Also included is a smoking burnout.





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

These take some trial and error to get them adjusted so that there is no bog, but it's not hard to do-here's how.

Decoding a Rochester Quadrajet part 1: The name
Rochester Quadrajets tend to mystify people because of the various model names assigned to them by GM. Add to that a redesign in the '70s and the confusion only grows. In this video we'll learn the different model names and also how to differentiate between early and later-model Qjets. Enjoy!





Rochester Quadrajet, the results!
Two mishaps, the first shown here, the choke coil I got was wound backwards, it made the choke butterfly wind up TIGHTER as the engine warmed up. I swapped on the one from the old carburetor fast enough, the second mishap made me feel like a crud and what did I mess up later that evening. The car would not start leaving the Etobicoke -Queensway show. It was not getting gas. We got it running by priming the carburetor, and boy, was I ticked at myself. In the end it was not my fault it looks like. The new accelerator pump umbrella and rod was a very poor and frail design, the umbrella came detached and stayed at the bottom of the of the pump well, and was a distressed mess. The maker will get a note from me. The upshot? The old assembly went in, all is perfectly fine, the slight tip-in hesitation is gone now too. Stupid lack of pride it seems these days making parts for even simple things like an old carburetor.
