A carburetor mixes air and fuel in appropriate proportions. Air and Liquid fuel are the inputs to the carburetor at different points of the carburetor.

Due to suction created by the working engine , atmosperic Air is accelerated through the venturi in the carburetor.

Accelerating Air sucks Fuel into the venturi at its center from a level regulated liquid fuel pot in the carburetor,due to the venturi action. (Bernoulli's Principle)

During the process of sucking the fuel is atomised /becomes a mist , as it enters the venturi. The atomised fuel then evaporates and mixes with the air uniformly.

This uniform gaseous mixture of fuel and air is the out put of the carburetor.

This gaseous mixture then enters into engine cylinders for combustion.

A carburetor is found in an internal combustion engine. The purpose of the carburetor is to blend fuel and air.

A carburetor is a part of a combustible engine that blends the air and fuel so there can be ignition. It is one part of the engine that you cannot do without.

No, a Honda Rancher 350 carburetor will not work on a Honda Rancher 400. The difference in the sizes of the 350 and 400 carburetors are not compatible with each other.

Yes, if you have a fuel pressure regulator.

Any carburetor works on the same basic premises. They mix fuel with air so that it can be ignited to be used to propel whatever engines it may be in.

this is the same in an older car. fuel is injected into the venturi, mixed with air, sent to the pistons, and- you are no longer working with carburetors. it is best if you research a car's carburetor.

You will find it where the fuel line meets the engine. Also, if you cannot even find the carburetor, chances are you should not attempt any handy work by yourself.

The sensor carburetor uses the sensors in its operation while the electric carburetor uses the electric current in its operation.

carburetor cleaning spray will dissolve old oil and gas tarnish build up in a carb, but it will not remove dirt and grit that has got into the carburetor. Very interesting information here. I have been a carburetor re builder for over 20 years and have found the best method of professional carb cleaning is to use a ultrasonic cleaner.

The 1998 xtz has a Teikei Y 26 PV carburetor. This is a dual carburetor where the smaller primary carburetor is of conventional type. The larger secondary carburetor is CV type.

Sounds like you have a plugged jet in the carburetor. You probably need to remove the carburetor and clean all the jets. This should restore you to the correct air/fuel ratio. If that doesn't work, the carburetor needs to be adjusted by the needles.

The diaphragm carburetor is found on many small engines. These engines power everything ranging from lawn equipment, generators, and even RC aircraft. Unlike a conventional "float" style carburetor the diaphragm carburetor will operate regardless of its orientation, even upside down! The internal workings of a diaphragm carburetor are simple in design, but complicated in explanation and consequently lengthy to discuss.

Has no carburetor. It is fuel injected.
