Take the carburetor apart again, remove the main and idle jets and idle mix screw, plus the float and needle valve. The main jet holds an 'emulsion tube' in--look inside where the slide valve moves, you should see a short brass tube projecting out of the bottom. Carefully push down on that tube with a plastic rod or wooden dowel, it should drop out the hole where the main jet was. Chances are that the tube is dirty and needs to be cleaned--look carefully at the series of small holes drilled into the sides of the tube. These small holes deliver air which is mixed into the fuel passed through the main jet. That air comes from a small hole just inside the intake side of the carburetor. The long needle that sticks out of the slide bottom controls low to mid-range speed fuel-mixture. Check that the 'C' clip on the top end of the needle is in the center groove and that the retainer spring is pressed down the 'C' clip. Now soak the whole carburetor with spray cleaner, then blow out all passages with compressed air. Don't soak the rubber-tipped needle valve from under the float. On reassembly, set the idle mix screw 1-1/2 to 2 turns CCW from CW stop. Adjust for best idle after you get it running and warmed up. I hope this long winded explanation helps!

Choke ligt on at idle 1986 chevy w/ quadrajet carb


sounds like the float is sticking or may have a hole in it, you can try adding some automatic transmission fluid to the gas - sometimes works if it sticking,check for a vaccume leak - but usually won't overfuel with a leak- but has happend.

Hard to start, no fuel to carb


If you take the fuel line off at the carb and crank the engine, does the pump push fuel out of the line ?

just like a car before the car start the fuel pump shoots gas in the carb or a lawnmower you gotta prime it all the gas that was in the carbs when you shut them motors off has done evaporated check your fuel cells see if there is a hand pump to prime the carbs unless its electric fuel pumps either way them carbs have to be primed

When my 1972 chevrolet 350 4 barrel is warmed up it acts like its not getting gas and jerks and eventually dies. if i wait a few minutes it will start up but after slight acceleration it starts it aga


Good chance it is not getting fuel, or enough fuel.
When the rig is cold, the choke is closed. As it warms up, the choke opens.
If the metering jets inside the carb are dirty, they may not be letting enough fuel into the barrels. You could also have a vac leak that is masked by the choke until the engine warms up.

I have a 74 gmc pu with an 87 350 motor that i put in. I put new edelbrock itake, carb, headers ,new pipe and mufflers, wires ,plugs .It starts, idles, and drives good even at normal or cold operating...


The fuel mixture is wrong because either the carb is badly adjusted or the choke doesn't open fully when the engine is hot.
Take the carb apart and check every single component, starting with the choke plates and the level in the bowls.

Edelbrock 1406 3 years old on a Chevy 350 corvette. Starts and runs great when cold but when it heats up to running temp. and I shut off the engine it will not start!! Has great spark,compression,and fuel....


Check the choke and make sure that the choke is all the way open when hot. The choke should only be closed when cold. The choke can be adjusted on the side by loosening the 3 screws and wathcing the butterfly valve.

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.

I have a cutlass with a chevy 350 , bogs out picking up speed ...


If I understand this right, you had this problem, changed the intake and carb, and still have the same problem, virtually unaffected by the new carb and intake.
My first suspect would be the fuel tank, especially if the car sat for a long time before you started driving it AND now you are using modern fuel which has a tendancy to start "cleaning" things. Being an 81 and that this is an intermitant problem and you are also complaining about the gas guage acting funny, I would drain and clean the tank. The sock on the end of the pickup tube could be falling apart or clogged up. If it is in fact breaking up or letting other junk through to the pump, clean and test if not replace the fuel pump. Personally, I would stick with an electric but it needs to be a decent one and not subject to junk coming from the tank, no pump can hold up to that. For a cheap temporary fix to help ID the problem, put another clear filter before the pump to see what's coming from the tank. If you don't want to put out the $$ for a Holley Red Label or equiv pump, make sure that the output is adaquate. Carbs like low pressure, high volume. Cheap pumps try to up the pressure in order to get the necessary volume and don't work well on a carb which relies on a mechanical float to regulate fuel. The regulator you installed will control pressure but do nothing for a lack of fuel volume at the carb which is the first thing I would suspect.

Other things to check out:
I would imagine you have HEI (elecronic ignition) which usually works or it don't so I wouldn't mess with that. I would check the plug wires though. If they are getting grungy, just change em. Otherwise, make sure nothing is loose. Check for a spot where heat or rubbing has worn through a wire, perhaps more than one.
Look around to see if the fuel is getting hot. Did you use a thick gasket under the carb? Is there anywhere around the engine that the fuel line, especially a metal one, could be too close to a major heat source.

Engine bogs down


I would adjust the carb, then I would check the float and the needle and seat on your carb. make sure your air filter is clean. check the timing.
