The nob on the back is the idel set., the float adjustments are the 2 recessed areas on diverside on top of carb.. Be aware by turning to try to set float can cause problems. If you do turn be sure to count number of turns for each so you can reset to original settings if carb starts to flood or starve. What are you trying to acheive?

sounds like the vain is blocked, you will need to take out the jet inside and clean it out. its brass so be careful when removing it. should be 2 or 3 in there remember where they all go don't put the wrong one back in the wrong hole they are different pin settings. flush out the hole and blow into them to make sure they are clean clean the hole in the jets and refit while you have it off clean the filter in the fuel line. and change the fuel filter when all clean the cleaner the better refit back on to the engine and use some carb seal blue or red will do as they colour code now. tighten back down . when all fitted make sure the settings on the fuel it 4 turns and air is 6 this will help it to start then adjust from there to get to your desired settings. hope this helps.

You have two setting screws on front of carb, You start off by adjusting all the way to the left, Then back off 3/4 turn to both setting screws, Then you have to set your air fuel mixture by just slowly turn your setting clock wise do so until vibration go away. Sorry there is no easy way to explain, Good luck to you,

I have a honda g150 engine on my snowthrower (hs35) the engine is surging and backfiring. i adjusted the air/fuel mix screw on the carb and the backfiring slowed and was not as powerful but it never went...


If you leave gas in it during the off season, this is mostly your problem. It leaves residue in the bowl.and all the tiny holes in the carb. best thing to do is remove it and disassemble it. clean it with the best carb cleaner you can get. blow out all the holes with air and make sure they are free. Just a note. Some times you can buy a carb for a few more dollars than what it costs for a rebuild kit

Carburetor flooding out of the air filter side of the dual carburetors on my 1990 honda prelude. will only happen after its been runnin for a bit. idle is not perfect and may have spmething to do with it....


This sounds like a float problem. The carbs have a fuel chamber each and the amount of fuel in the chambers is controlled by a plastic float and needle valve. Carb will require stripping and cleaning and float adjusted. Not a job for DIY i'm afraid

Hello I have a 1980 Ford Bronco 351 2bbl. Wondering if anyone knows which screws adjust what? Please if anyone has any ideas please respond. Thank you.


Here are some images that might help to assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.


Adjust the curb idle with the engine warmed up and the choke off.

The air/fuel mixture screws should be adjusted with the engine warmed up and at normal idle speed, then turn each air/fuel mixture screw in one at a time until the engine just begins to mis-fire, then back the air/fuel mixture screw out 1-1/2 to 2 turns out a half a turn at a time until the engine idle is the smoothest. (your vehicle might have restrictor caps over the air/fuel mixture screws to limit the amount of adjustment)

To adjust the vacuum tension pull on the choke pull-off:

Adjust the fast idle screw to the proper RPM with the engine cold and the choke on.

Fuel mixture is too lean


many of the late model cars & trucks can't be
adjusted some of the carbs are preset some you can force and some don't have an adjusting screw for the jets if the carb is in good working order but needs a bit more fuel you u must adjust the float for more or less fuel check to make sure the float valve is clean free and not sticking ..

How to set the floats on 1980 honda fcivic


YOU CHECK FLOAT LEVEL LOOKING AT THE SIGHT GLASS ON THE RIGHT OF THE CARBURETOR.FUEL LEVEL SHOULD ALIGN WITH THE DOT ON THE SIGHT GLASS.IF THE LEVEL IS ABOVE OR UNDER THE DOT THE CARBURETOR HAS TO BE DISASSEMBLED.TO SET FLOATS REMOVE AND INVERT THE AIR HORN UNTIL THE FLOAT ARM JUST TOUCHES THE NEEDLEVALVE OR THERE IS ABOUT 0.1 mm OR 0.004 INCH CLEARANCE BETWEEN THEM.MEASURE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE BOTTOM OF THE AIR HORN GASKET INSTALLED.AND THE CENTER OF THE BOTTOM OF THE FLOAT.THE DISTANCE SHOULD MEASURE 36.4 mm 1.39 - 1.47 INCH. ADJUST BY TURNING THE NEEDLE VALVE SEAT.BE CAREFUL NOT TO ALLOW THE VALVE SEAT TO PROTRUDE FROM THE SEAT ATTACHING BOSS.WHICH WOULD ALLOW THE VALVE TO FALL.IF THIS IS THE CASE BEND THE FLOAT ARM SLIGHTLY UNTIL PROPER CLEARANCE CAN BE OBTAINED.WHEN CARBURETOR IS INSTALLED CHECK FLOAT LEVEL BY LOOKING INTO THE CARBURETOR FLOAT SIGHT GLASS I MENTION IN INFORMATION ABOVE.IF YOU HAVE A 1487cc AND 1600cc CVCC MODELS WITH THE KEIHIN 3 BARREL CARBURETOR.THIS WOULD DEALERSHIP JOB.THIS TYPE IS HARD TO ADJUST.

My 1983 cutlass supreme keeps flooding out. It wont even start after sitting awhile, carburator fills up with fuel, what can be causing this?


Hello!


if you have a carbuerator unit on her, i assume you a refering to the fuel overfilling the bowl and flooding oiut after vehicle is shut off. this can be caused by a worn or dirty needle for the float, or possibly the float itself has ruptured and is partialy submirsed allowing excess fuel to enter the fuel bowl. i believe you may have a 307 or 260 engine that came with a rochester 2 barrel carb. there are unly a few screws on top of this carb and is quite simple to check...just be careful to place all pieces back in same position removed from...although with that age, the gaskets will likely tear when taking apart. it may be worth your while to check into a complete replacement from NAPA. anyways, once the 4 or 6 screws (cant remember) are off from top of carb (i suggest having the carb removed from engine as if you drop a screw into throat of carb and the engine ingests it..its bye bye engine)...the float will be exposed..carefully lift it out paying attention to the needle position once out...be carefule to not bend the tang that needle hangs on as this is you float depth that sets the volume of fuel allowed in bowl. and shake it to see if fuel is inside float. if so, replace it..if not, you may be able to spray carb cleaner into the seat that float needle sits in and wash off the needle itself..reasseble and recheck performance..also it is a good idea to replace fuel filter when carb is off...i hope this help you...good luck!

ps your 4 thumbs up is much appreciated

Car not getting fuel


If it is a 1980 Caddy it either has a carburetor or throttle-body fuel injection( V864, if it's fuel injected you might need a new fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator ) and you can remove the aircleaner lid and pour a little gas down the carb (hold the choke plate open with a screw driver placed between choke plate and carb air horn) or throttle-body. It might take a few tries before the fuel pump fills the float bowl up on the carb for it to keep running. If the cars has really old stale gas in the tank you might need to drain it and refill with fresh gas. Change the fuel filter and add a can of fuel injector-carb cleaner to the gas tank.
