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.

76 jeep cherokee 360. how many turns on the oxygen screw of the carburator? i can take off fine if i baby the gas but if i give it too much gas it boggs down and back fires.


Sounds like a problem with the accelerator pump or cruise circuit in the carb. The idle mixture screws only affect the idle circuit.
You start with 2 turns out then adjust it with an exhaust gas analyzer.

1987 threequrter ton chevy 350 moter with quadura jet carb running rich an smokeing


either the float is sticking, when it is running use the back of a screwdriver and rap the bowl and see if this helps, or the jets need adjusted, start with the right one first, turn in untill the motor starts to lag then open it up untill the rpm stops climbing, do the same with the left one also, see if this helps. let me know.

1983 Ford Ranger carburator running way to rich. How do I adjust it?


First ensure air cleaner is OK and flow path not blocked. If OK, rebuild carburetor. Float level may be too high or float valve not working right. You can get rebuild kits online. Rebuilt an autolite 2100 recently for only $15. Let me know if you have more questions.

1992 jeep wrangler with faulty acceleration. It


It is possibly the O2 sensor. I had some issues with early 90's 4.0 liters where the O2 sensor would stick rich under heavy acceleration and would cause it to lean out and bog down. It felt like a rochester four barrel flat spot on an old chevy. I hope this helps.

Carb is acting weird cant seem to adjust


That is the choke adjustment,have you checked your timing on the motor and check and see if the vacum pod on the distributer is working. also check your vacum lines for any tears or cracks in them.

Havin trouble adjusting carburator for a 78 regal 3.8L, just runs a little rich and cant seem to adjust to correct specs at least close enough.


Warm up the automobile to operating temperature then use a vacuum Gauge attached to the intake manifold (not the carb).  Turn the idle adjustment screw "IN" until the car is about to cut out then turn the screw "OUT" 2-2 1/2 turns.  Look at the vacuum gauge if the gauge is steady at 18-22 then you are fine where you are at.  If not adjust 1/8 turn in or out until needle on the gauge is steady.  BTW the car has to be warm and You NEED the vacuum gauge....  Autozone or Shucks has one for loan so you have no excuse not to use one.  DO NOT over-tighten the adjustment screw if you do you can/will break off the tip in the metering passageway and then the carb has to be rebuilt or replaced.(  Yes this can and will happen and you can't just replace the crew.)
