Rebuilt carburator and truck runs rich. Cant get adjusted right and under accelereation truck boggs down

im pretty sure that the float adjustment is set wrong, if to high it will act as if truck is flooding out, and be very rich. if to low you will not get the power you need. readjust float level. make sure there is no dirt inside carburator. for adjustment turn screws way in and back out 1 and a half turns.start from there.

90 caddy seville put new plugs in #2 cylinder seems to gas foul alot weather it sits for a night or sometimes within a few miles of changing the plug why?

If yours is the carburated model,the float may be to high allowing to much fuel into the engine.The air/fuel adjustment may also be adjusted to rich.
If its the injected model,The fuel pressure regulator may be allowing to much fuel to flow to the injectors and the pressure should be checked and, call the auto parts store and check to be sure the correct spark plugs are being used. If so ask for 1 heat range higher.

My 351 is running rich

use the air and gas flow adjustments on the side of the carburator to adjust the rich/lean flow of gas. there is a srew on each side of the carb to adjust one is for air the other for fuel. the one on the driversside is for the fuel and the one on the passenger side is for air. you have to turn them slowly til you get the desired results

How do you adjust the fuel air ratio in the carb on a 1985 s10 chevy blazer?

The carbureator is sealed so you cannot get into to make adjustments. That said, there are soft lead plugs near the base and you can pry them out. Now you are able to access the adjusting screws. You need an air/fuel meter to accurately set them to spec. Hope this helps.
