not sure of all makes but they were widely used on 80-82 camaros and similar F-bodies (firebird etc) I have a 1977 Firebird I pulled my complete 350 engine from a 1978 Camaro and with it came a 4bbl Q-Jet by Carter. The owner of the camaro said that is what the car came with and it was all original. Hope that helps.
a 600 or 650 CFM. carb will work great on that engine.
the carter carb, they suck. get a weber. you'll thank me later.
on a computer controlled vehicle you have to reprogram the computer and on an older vehicle with a carburetor you have to change the jets in the carb.
Not knowing what year the vehicle is and assuming you mean the "EVAP charcoal canister", if the vehicle has a carburetor, I would suspect the carb is flooding.
If this truck does have a carter carb,chances are it shouldn't .I am a licensed mechanic and haven't personally ever heard of a 70's chev small block ever using a carter . Regardless, the filter should be somewhere inline ,due to the carter not having an internal filter .Like the rochester carbs.
to get more air in to the carb, rather than having to come in from the front of the vehicle, it goes through the blower to the carb
It sounds as though you have no experience with this type of work, which will make the project much more difficult to complete. You would want a small carb such as a 600 Edelbrock or similar. And you would likely need to purchase an intake manifold that can accept a carb. The fuel pump requirements for a carb are much different than a tbi, so you'll need to change that. The vehicle would not meet emission requirements, so you may have a problem getting the vehicle inspected. Every state has it's own rules.
No, you would not have chickpeas on a no carb diet.
If your vehicle has electronic fuel injection: http://www.change2E85.com If your vehicle has a carb: http://www.e85carbs.com
Well, I would recommend replacing carburetors with any products manufactured by Holley carb because they offer a variety of products for a variety of carburetors and products. They also offer their products for a great price.
a 1998 Tracker would be fuel injected and not have a carb.a 1998 Tracker would be fuel injected and not have a carb.
AnswerSounds to me that your vehicle is off time. Check the timing on it. If the timing is off it will backfire through the carb and also if it is cross wired (firing order wrong) it will backfire through the carb.
Fuel injected? check under vehicle follow the fuel line from tank Carb? In the inlet line of the carb.
Its a Carter Thermoquad. Essentially, its a 3 pc. 4 bbl Carter with the top plate/bottom plate made from metal like a reg. carb but the center section is made from Thermo plastic..thus the Thermoquad name.
You don't have a carb on that vehicle, it is throttle body fuel injected.
The oem is a Rochester Quadrajet, but you could also use a Holley, Carter or Edelbrock, among others. It would be best to pick a carb that you or someone you know and trust knows how to tune. In the alternative, buy a book on tuning the carb of your choice.
There is not a carb on a fuel injected vehicle. It has a throttle body. the amount of air to fuel ratio is controlled by the computer.
This vehicle does not have a carb. The fault is likely with the mass air flow sensor or something of the like.
Watermelon would be considered a "good" carb. However, do not have too much fruit if you are counting carbohydrates.
It depends on your skill level, what engine you are replacing with what engine, what vehicle you are removing from and putting in, tools, and how much time you have. Is it EFI or carb? Are you going from carb to EFI? Carb to EFI? It can take a day or it can take a year lol.
This is a difficult question. The easy answer is the qjet is better on mileage. But there are so many variables that its really hard to consider one or the other being better for all engines. Your 'typical' qjet - 750-800cfm spreadbore, to a 750-800 holley squarebore. Both of these carbs are more complicated to tune than an edelbrock, and both will likely give more power. Edelbrock will likely give the best transition when the secondaries come on. Holleys being more complicated also have more tuning capabilities (about the same as a qjet, and both more than the edelbrock), and being that the bores are the same size, when the secondaries open up the power is a nicer transition than the qjet. The rochester qjet (thermoquad is carters equivalent) has smaller primaries because it is a spreadbore. This means when driving around 90% of the time in a street car, you use less gas per cfm. Holleys are still being developed today, they offer many goodies and some safety features you wouldn't find in a remanufactured qjet. I much prefer holleys on an engine which couldn't use the cfm flow of the big qjet in the first place. Now when we're talking about 383 ci and bigger (or a really thumping 350) I would take the qjet for the street. Basically, if your engine size, cam, intake, etc cannot use 750-800 cfm, there's no point in getting the qjet. Also the qjet, having larger secondaries will really make some noise and you'll feel the power coming on harder when the secondaries open up. This isn't saying it makes more power, just how it is. (mechanical secondaries will give more kick, so again you can have similar results with a holley with nicer transition - better torque curve) Edelbrocks to me are weekend warrior or general mechanic carbs, someone who doesn't want to spend the time or money to learn how to tune correctly.. The downside with chosing those is holleys are going to make more power for about the same money. The downside with holley is you may have to spend a few hundred $$ on gauges, tuning tools and supplies, and start educating yourself on how an engine and carbs work. And if you have that hopped up cam, you may want to consider the holley for free top end hp. There are a number of aftermarket companies that have sprang up and based their designs on holleys. Quickfuel, proform, and a handful of others. Some of these advertise better power, but who knows. Seems to me they're all just the same as a racing style holley without choke or choke horn etc. If you know how to work around a carb and tune already, then grab a qjet and put it on the engine of the correct size. Now you've got some big power and some reasonable mileage. If your car is a 1/4 mile or track car, get the holley. If I remember correct, holley did make some smaller spreadbore carburetors for marine applications. You could look into those for even better mileage on a smaller engine, say a v6 or small v8. If you could not find a spreadbore for those sizes, get a smaller cfm holley it will be more efficient and similar mileage as the qjet. I haven't even discussed vacuum advance vs mechanical and dual pump vs single accelerator, different style chokes etc there are a lot of variables to consider, and that's not even talking about the drivetrain/engine/vehicle the carb is in ...one other thing to consider is if you have a really lead foot and you're going into and out of the secondaries all the time, a squarebore may have better mileage than a spreadbore. Think a crazy teenage driver here.
Fuel injected? Try turning key to "on" position without trying to start vehicle for about 10 seconds. Do this twice to prime fuel pump. Carb.? Try pouring a "very small" amount of gasoline into carb., then try to start vehicle
If it has a carb. It is in the inlet line of the carb. If fuel injected Look under vehicle along frame rail - follow the fuel line from the tank
A four barrel carb usually adds about 20 hp.
From the factory, the fuel filter would be in the Q-jet carb. You have to disconnect the fuel line at the carb and remove that housing on the carb. Filter is inside.
