Need a diagram for vaccum advance for a GMC truck 1981 350 engine 2bbl carb


The vacuum signal for the advance needs to come from a ported vacuum source on the carburetor, and not from manifold vacuum. Ported vacuum means little or no vacuum at idle, because the throttle plates at idle shut off the ported vacuum hole. Look for a vacuum tube coming from near the base of the carburetor.
I have no resource to find a diagram. You may need to check a repair manual that your local library might have. Or purchase a Haynes or Chilton manual for around $25. Or join a forum for older Chevy/GMC trucks; somebody there could help you, I'm sure. Good luck.

How to rebuild a 22r carburetor


This Carb was using in Toyotas (i.e. 87 PickUp), according with this, check this removal ans installing ptocedure.

1 Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2 Loosen the radiator drain plug and drain the coolant into a suitable container.
3 Unscrew the mounting screws and remove the air filter housing. Disconnect all hoses and lines leading from the air cleaner.
4 Tag and disconnect all fuel, vacuum, coolant and electrical lines or hoses leading from the carburetor.
5 Disconnect the accelerator linkage from the carburetor. On cars equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the throttle cable linkage running from the transmission.
6 Remove the four carburetor mounting bolts and lift off the carburetor and its gasket.
Cover the manifold opening with a clean rag to prevent anything from falling into the engine.

7 Install the carburetor (with a new gasket), tighten the mounting bolts EVENLY in steps and reconnect all linkage.
8 Start the engine and check for any leaks. Check the float level.

My 86 b 2000 is now 25 yrs old and doesn't require emission any more ,can i buy a different carb. and exhaust manifold and if i can whats the best carb and manifold do i use?


I didn't know anybody even used carburetors after 1982. By that time, it was cheaper and easier to meet clean air standards with fuel injection, and if done right, fuel injection provides better performance anyway. You can tweak performance with different manifolds, improved exhaust piping and possibly a turbocharger. There may be a "high-performance" ROM chip for your engine computer; this permits a greater fuel delivery under acceleration conditions.

Note: some smaller engines used a single throttle body injector rather than one for each cylinder. Theoretically you could replace this with a carburetor, but modifying the engine controls to work correctly with it would be a nightmare.

I have transplanted motor from '86 Japanese import 1300 ford laser into '86 English assembled vehicle. Because extra electronics on Japanese vertion carburetor I have not been able to connect every thing...


Have you considered making an adapter plate? You can use a piece of 1/2" aluminum plate, drill it out to match the carb venturis on one side and the manifold plenum on the other side, them blend them together. bolts going into the manifold can be used to fasten the adapter to the manifold using tulip bolts that will be flush when installed. Drill and tap your studs for the carb using the gasket for a template. of course you need to use two gaskets, one between the plate and manifold and the other for the carb. It takes a bit of work and patience. I use a die grinder when I need to make one. Kerosene is useful for keeping the grinder free of debris.

I think I have an air leak between my carb and manifold 2.3 engine is this a common problem Can the mounting plate be wrarped ?


no, this would not be very common on the 2.3L, but what we did see allot on these models was a vacuum leak around the throttle shaft and that would make you think it was a base plate, that is not to say that the base is not leaking the only thing to do is remove the carburetor and have a look.

I am going from a qudrajet carb to an Edelbrock 600 with manual choke. I am not sure how the linkage switches over. I am working on a 1985 chevy 4x4 with a sb 350


If your staying with the stock intake manifold the edelbrock wont fit unless you install a adapter plate.And i would advise you not to install it will not seal properly.I would install a edelbrock intake manifold and carburetor as a matched set.You can purchase a edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold from advance auto parts that's designed for your vehicle.

87 cadillac has starting problem after sitting for a period of time, or when parked on slight incline. Seems like fuel drains back into tank. Have to pump pedal for several minutes, some times for 20 +...


I believe that car still had the modified version of the Quadrajet carb on it. They are noted for having fuel bowl bottom plug leaks. In that case, the fuel is not going into the tank, but draining into the intake manifold. To fix that, the carb needs to be removed and a good fuel proof epoxy needs to be put over the plugs to seal them off.
It's been a while and I cannot remember if the base plate needs to be removed to do this but I don't think so.

I don't know where the air/fuel mixture screw is on my carb


There should be one screw (I'm assuming it's the Carter YF carburetor 1 barrel) that's by itself away from linkages etc, more to center at base of carb where it meets manifold, that is angled approx 45 degrees going in to base. That should be your mixture screw. What symptoms are you experiencing anyway?
