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.
here is a technique for re-bushing the throttle shaft without drilling.
How to de-bog your Quadrajet part 2
The Rochester Quadrajet has gotten a bad rap over the years, but it's
actually an excellent carburetor once you understand how they work.
Often referred to as "Quadrabog" or "Quadrajunk", many of the issues these
units suffer stem from neglect, or "modifications" that do more harm than
Being a spreadbore, air-valve secondary design, the Quadrajet is capable
of flowing 750 or 800 cfm of airflow, eliminating the need to buy different
carburetors when your set-up changes. In addition, the small primaries make
for great drivability and fuel economy.
In this clip, I'll discuss theory of operation on the secondary side,
since that's where most problems arise. So, leave your preconceived notions
at the door and let's see what makes these carburetors tick.
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!
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.
