Auto: Change carburetor - so it goes

It looks like a slightly older carburetor.

The carburetor is a major component on a gasoline-powered internal combustion engine. It is responsible to generate a usable for the cylinder air-fuel mixture which is sucked by the piston stroke. Now there are many different vehicle manufacturers with as many different types of gasoline engines. Here, therefore, only the basic procedure of a carburetor change are described.

To remove the carburetor from

  1. With every repair of the engine compartment of your car, you first connect the battery by unscrewing the negative cable.
  2. Next, unscrew the air filter. On older models, he usually sits directly on the carburetor, with other models, it is only the large inlet hose that goes from the filter to the carburetor.
  3. Remove the throttle cable and the fuel supply line and the carburetor located on the electrical cable. You may have to unplug an overflow hose.
  4. Now you can loosen the fastening screws on the carburetor. You may need access to a special key. Make sure you like the snap rings and washers are attached.
  5. Now remove the carburetor and put equal a suitable cover or a clean rag in the intake flange, so that no dirt gets in there.

You must be careful when installing in your car

  1. First you need to remove the old gasket or their remnants. Make the carefully - preferably with a scraper. Be careful not to damage the sealing surface. The new carburetor for your car is never completely finished normally. Remove any foil or wax again from the flange.
  2. Grease the new seal on both sides slightly and place it on the suction flange. Remove the cloth or the seal and put the new carburetor.
  3. Place the washers and locking rings back under and tighten all screws gradually and crosswise. Do not forget the ground cable, if one was previously well tuned.
  4. Now close all electrical cord back in and the fuel supply. Put here with a banjo bolt and new seals on both sides at the same time while checking also the condition of the pipes and hoses.
  5. Attach the throttle cable again, screw the lead in the bracket and tighten the lock nut. The cable should only have a little bit of air.
  6. Finally, connect the air supply or air filter directly on again. This you should renew at a carburetor changes to your car or even clean anyway. Screw the last battery cable.

If all goes well, the car should start up again after a few twists of the starter and the engine running again to your satisfaction.
