The air mixture settings dont often change by themselves, its usually a small screw under the carb, and is sometimes blanked over with a alum plug .
as the air filter gets old it can richen the mixture even if the filter looks ok and clean.
the carbs float bowls can flood due to dirt or corrosion as will require a carb overhaul.
If the air filter or exhaust has been changed from standard, this can mean rejetting, the air screws have their main effect at idle

I got my carburetor problem fixed but now it runs for a while then starts backfiring it'll shut off let's set for a couple seconds and start right back up can anybody tell me why


That sounds like a fuel/air mixture problem.

Just to confirm .. it is a carburettor, not fuel injection?

As a general rule of thumb (with carburettors..) if it backfires through the exhaust/muffler .. the fuel mixture is too rich.

If it backfires through the carb/air filter, the mixture is too weak.

It could also be a 'sticking' float in the carb.

When an engine is cold the fuel is rich .. lots of fuel .. that's how a choke works.. However, when the engine warms up a rich mixture causes problems. The car may splutter and stall, run sluggish or cut out.

The carburettor how to adjust the air and fuel mixture on the carburettor


Find the adjustment screws on the front of the carburetor. Then Start the engine and let it warm to normal operating.
Adjust both screws equally and find the right mixture.Bring both screws up slowly and listen until the engine purrs smoothly. Any raggedness or rattling is a sign of too lean a mixture. Keep turning until you find the sweet spot.

How do I adjust the CO and fuel/air mixture


the CO and fuel/air mixture is not adjustable on modern cars , only on carburettors . the engine management system will ensure correct fuelling, if there is a fault with this then in most cases an engine management light will illuminate on the dash board

Holley 2 barral carburetor runs to rich in 1985 Dodge Diplomat 318 V8


pull the float level plug in the side and check the float level
It should have fuel at the bottom of the thread Adjust on the top as necessary
in the emulsion plate there is a power valve that is vacuum controlled
The diaphragm is subject to punctures from back firing and this will pass extra uncontrolled fuel to the manifold
adjust the mixture screws as if they are too far out then extra fuel will be drawn into the manifold

Valves need to adjusted with a feeler gauge (6 and 8). Allows no kickback during start. Check air filter if still running rich. Hold filter away from housing, if it pulls it in most likely clogged. Hope it helps

Carburettors nissan king cab 1991 what make carburettor


­T­he goal of a carburetor is to mix just the right amount of gasoline with air so that the engine runs properly. If there is not enough fuel mixed with the air, the engine "runs lean" and either will not run or potentially damages the engine. If there is too much fuel mixed with the air, the engine "runs rich" and either will not run (it floods), runs very smoky, runs poorly (bogs down, stalls easily), or at the very least wastes fuel. The carb is in charge of getting the mixture just right.

My 1400 intruder pops and back fires


I think maddogcycle is right. One cylinder is running rich and the other running lean. It seems as though they have not been balanced properly and the mixture not accurately adjusted. The settings on these carburettors are critical and must be adjusted with the proper gauges. I'd advise you to have the carbs cleaned and adjusted and tuned to the engine for balance of inducted air flow and fuel/air ratio (mixture)

I think you must have the carburettor plunger not going well as you are getting flat spots under sudden acceleration, I think the best way to go is to get the carburettor overhauled.
