If you buy a rebuild kit for it, there will be a couple of pages included. One is instructions and specifications, like float height and choke settings, that kind of thing. Another page will have an exploded view of every part or piece, and they are numbered. You follow the numerical sequence when disassembling it . It keeps you from running into trouble. Keep things organized, so you don't get jets or parts mixed up. Use trays with several sections, or little cups, or even a few egg cartons with numbers on each little section. There are a lot of parts- anywhere from about 80 to over 100.
So you get it all apart and clean everything, including all the internal passages in the carb body. People used to use a strong dip available that you could just drop parts into, especially the larger parts that had those passages, and it cleaned them ferociously. I have been told to not even bother with it anymore-environmental regulations have made it rather weak. So just buy one or two cans of carb cleaner and spray everything. Use the little tubes that come with the aerosol cans to hit all the passages.
If you need anymore, you could buy a Haynes or Chilton repair manual for your truck. Lots of information on the carburetors in them. I like the old cars and trucks, still own a carbureted Sentra, but I like fuel injection systems more-nowhere near as many parts to contend with. Good luck.

I would like to know if you have a carter carburator diagram for a 2bbl carb


Www.carter.com ask for exploded views of your carb you'll need the tag number on the carb. Its relatively easy to do as long as your float level is correct or google carter carberators using the tag number

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1978 chev monte carlo?


It should be in the carburator. Remove the supply line, then remove the fitting that threads into the carb. The fuel filter will be behind that.

This carb does not seem like a factory carb. One place to get a parts exploded view is to get a rebuild kit, they have one included.

Carb is leaking it looks like accelerator pump. truck still runs not sure if there is a gasket i could replace.


Hi!!

There is a carburator rebuild kit that you can get at the AutoParts store for your vehicle. Runs about $25 and it has a diagram and step by step instruccions on how to rebuild the carburator yourself. If you don't feel comfrortable doing it, take it to a carburator shop for rebuilding. It is cheaper if you take the carb. by itself. Before removing carb. take a few pictures of the hoses and linkage n mark each hose and electrical connection removed, this will make your life a lot easier when you install it back.

Don't forget to rate this answer, Good Luck.

hello, usually when gas sets in carb for a long time it turns into a varnish, you will have to take carb apart and clean all jets out, even the fuel pump may be clogged up, you will probably have to rebuild carb, unless you have access to air line to blow any and all jets, pretty much all passage ways, power jets, in other words you have a carb problem, you may need a new one, unless you have a strong solvent, that will break away any varnish or gum up.

Would like a print and some info on rebuilding a chevy tbi carburator. This is for a 1989 chevrolet fuel injection TBI carburator. Thanks, Jerry


Here is a real good page on TBI

http://chevythunder.com/gm_throttle_body_injection_pg_1.htm

When you ask for the kit at the part store some list it as a carburator rebuild kit and some list it as a Throttle Body rebuild kit. Not much to rebuild, Clean it put in new gaskets and o-rings. There is two different kits one comes with a new fuel pressure regulator and one does not. Best to check fuel pressure and fuel filter prior to purchasing the kit. Fuel injectors should be tested and cleaned by a shop. I found a carquest auto parts that had the machines to do it and cost me $40 for 2 injectors.

Have a qualified mechanic rebuild your original carburator and reinstall it with all the original vaccum hoses and controls functioning properly.

Someone smarter than you and I, designed this engine to function properly with the feedback carburator. Installing an aftermarket carb negates the entire emision control system and will not allow the engine to "Breathe" properly.
