    Carburetor (small engine) quiz.?

    I accidentally left my binder at school for my small engines class and I have a quiz on carburetors tomorrow. Can some one explain how it works, and if you have a website where I could look at a labeled diagram of a carburetor (elbow/corner type).

    Question about carburetors?

    My father has a 350 cu. chevy engine with a Q-Jet carburetor, the engine is stock but when the air cleaner is off it sounds like it has a turbo-charger and is about to suck in the whole hood when he revs the vehicle up. I have a Holley 600cfm 4v.

    The Q-Jet carb is a "spread bore" carburetor which means the secondary jets are larger than the primaries. A 4-barrel carburetor has 4 jets and the first 2 stay open at a cruise but the next 2.

    Carburetor Problems 72 VW beetle motor?

    I have a dune buggy with a 72 VW motor. I have a Solex H30/31PICT carburetor on it now, and I am having problems with it. Its been cleaned and rebuilt by 3 different mechanics, but still just having issues. I need to replace it, but wanted to know.

    Dual carbs pose their own unique troubles, but can improve performance somewhat. Expect to spend around $600. 00 though. You can opt also for a progressive Weber, but that also is pricey.

    Why does gas spray through carburetor?

    After being being rebuilt, why does fuel still spray through the carburetor. s it carburetor from a boat, & what do I do to fix it.

    Carburetors are supposed to allow fuel and air to flow into the engine. The job of the carburetor is to draw in the proper amount of fuel based on the amount of air being sucked in the engine.
