    Carter Thermoquad question

    If the front throttle blades are stamped 314, it’s the big one. If they are stamped 315, it’s the small one.

    Is anyone running a 4425S Carter on a 68 340 engine?

    There are idle mixture screws buried under the lead, just below the 2 aluminum plugs. Good chance that they are frozen. As Mattax said, that top screws controls idle air only.

    Rochester 2bbl rebuild Q

    Over here at Pittsburgh motor speedway, (1/2 mile) when the hobby stock class pulls in for inspection, the officials go get a hot dog. 2 years ago we won the last race of the year by 4 seconds. Last year we set the track record. But if they look down into the carb we’re toast!!

    Rochester 2bbl rebuild Q

    Save the old check ball. After you get it all cleaned up, drop the old check ball back down in there. Then reach down in there with a small punch and give the top of the ball a little wack with a small hammer. This will assure that your seat is concentric. Turn the carb body upside down. If the...

    Is this engine knock ?

    I had a screw stick in the top of a piston, then on cool down it would come out, and rattle on initial start up. Then get stuck during hard RPM. One in a while unloging itself. It will usually smash the electrode.

    Holley 4777 carb shaft leaking fuel

    If you squirt fuel on top of the throttle blades, especially without any vacuum below them, fuel will seep out around the throttle shaft. They are not intended to seal liquid. Also if the boosters drip onto closed blades, it will seep out around the shaft. This would happen ona brand new carburetor.

    Thermoquad vs holley vs q-jets

    The said 451 still had booster drip @ .120 IBP, @ .125 it still spit fuel intermittently. @ .128 the booster drip was completely gone. At that point, in order to keep the Idle mixture screws 1 1/2 turns from bottom, the IFR’s had to be@ .052. I didn’t dream that size up. I listened to the engine...

    Thermoquad vs holley vs q-jets

    I gotta add this, since we are here. In mild small blocks a lot of times you’ll notice that you idle mixture screws are 3 1/2 or more turns out. That is when I plug the idle bypass and do NOT redrill, or drastically reduce the size. This renders your idle mixture screws effective again.
