750 vs. 800cfm Rochester Quadrajets-how to tell them apart
There exists a ton of misinformation regarding the actual airflow capacity of the Rochester Quadrajet. Not many people know how many variations there are or how to tell them apart.
Here is a simple video explaining how to identify each size based on casting design. I will cover the "cfm-limited" carbs in a separate video.
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)
Identifying Quadrajet vacuum ports
I always see a lot of questions about what various vacuum ports do on a
Here's a general guide that will point you in the right direction.
Remember that there were many different Qjets over the years and vacuum
port locations and number will vary. This video is representative of
How to measure and adjust Quadrajet float level
I have had several requests for this, so here you go:
1. The airhorn has to be removed to do this, but the carburetor does not
have to be removed from the engine.
2. Some data says to measure from the toe(end that is opposite from the
hinge), some say 5/16 inward from the end, etc. I suggest following the
specs for your particular carburetor.
3. With the float in the raised position and the inlet needle lightly
seated, measure from the top of the float to the top edge of the carburetor
with NO gasket in place. If you have to adjust the float, bend at the area
that has the cutouts,
4, If you are experiencing flooding issues then it is an excellent time to
install a new needle/seat and float and that should cure flooding problems
that are not choke-related.

Most relaxing sound for men - Old-School American V8 Corvette C3 1979 (Stingray)
Includes Cold engine idle, warm idle and a bit of revving to about 4500
RPM. I decided to create this video since my Vette now sounds quite loud
thanks to the Cherrybomb glasspack Exhaust and removal of the catalyst. The Exhaust is basically stock. I think this is
one of the most relaxing sounds for men who are into cars and machines :)
Engine: 5.7 L (350 cid) V8 L-48
Transmission: Warner 4-Speed Manual
My Corvette is generally in very good condition and it has already been
restored once in USA some years before it arrived in our country. I got the
car in a state where the exterior + drivetrain were fine, but the interior
needed new carpet, some painting and several other components in order to
look great. I'm now pretty much done with the interior. The engine used to
have issues but those were mostly external (bad thermostat housing, bad
spark plug wires etc.). By now the engine is a pleasure to drive, but the
Rochester Quadrajet carburetor has hard time keeping the pre-selected idle
speed and sometimes wants to hold it higher, then lower. It might be also
some extra fuel leaking in from somewhere occasionally. There used to be
some vacuum leaks but I've taken care of them. Perhaps I will replace the
intake + carb with an Edelbrock setup for next driving season. The engine
compression has been measured recently and the results were perfect for all
NB! We will soon try to film the Vette from another car when driving on a
motorway. I'm hoping to get some good footage that way.

'77 Chevy K20: Quadrajet Choke Pull Off and Fast Idle Cam Observations
1977 Chevy K20. 350 crate engine. Rochester Quadrajet 4MV carburetor with
Truck suffers from unexplained hesitation and bogging when in forward
gears. Tends to rev just fine after a few minutes of mixed idling and high
revving. Checking choke operations as well as a possible sticky fast idle
cam as part of the process of elimination.
- Truck is allowed to idle/warm up until 2:25 mark, at which point the
engine is revved to about 2,000 rpm, and can be heard bogging (a hissing
sound can be heard). The fast idle cam is seen dropping. Fuel flow can be
seen in the glass-cased fuel filter right before the carb as remaining
- The engine is revved again about three more time up until 3:00 minute
mark. The engine revs slightly higher, but the hissing and bogging can
still be heard.
- Engine is revved again at the 3:35 mark, slightly past the 3,000 rpm
mark. Hesitation and hissing still evident, but less so than before.
- Engine revved at the 4:25 mark to about 4,000 rpm. No hesitation or
- Transmission is slowly shift through every gear starting at 4:55 mark.
Shifted back into Park at 5:05 mark.
- Engine revved again at 5:10 and 5:17 marks to 4,000 rpm. No hesitation or
hissing is heard.
