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)
How to de-bog your Quadrajet part 1
Sorry guys, I got the videos a bit out of order.
The Rochester Quadrajet has gotten a bad rap over the years, often called a Quadrabog or Quadrajunk.
In fact, this is a great multipurpose carbureter once you understand how they work and what not to do to them.
In this clip I introduce you to the Quadrajet and begin explaining the theory of operation of these units.
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.

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.

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.
Redneck carb choke.AVI
So I got this 1978 Okanagan RV (based off a 78 Ford E-350 but the front end looks like a 79..) and it had a fancy lill Edelbrock carb in her, the 1406 model and the second owner of it couldn't understand why she could never star up without trying to turn her over like 8 times @_@
Alas I am a pretty poor youth so I had to look for alternatives to completley replacing its seized electric choke system, I went down to Lordco (auto parts chain here in BC Canada) and picked myself up one of those $7 pull cable units and wired it around as so and....
IT WORKS LIKE A DREAM!
Backfiring Carb Shooting Flames
this dudes timing was all sorts of messed up, so when he tries to start his car it backfires fireballs out of the carb that burn his hood insulation. my teacher repeatedly blows out the lingering fire on the carb like they are birthday candles and this makes me laugh hella much
