Carb Class: 5 Basic Carb Tuning Tips| 12/22/2015
Quick Fuel Technology® (QFT™) ships carburetors only after they have been thoroughly run-tested and adjusted on a typical engine. Engine testing all carburetors prior to shipment ensures that when a new QFT™ carb is bolted on an engine, it will start, idle and perform up to the customer’s expectations.
However, sometimes a little more fine-tuning is needed because the customer has a fairly radical street setup with a big cam with lower than normal intake vacuum, or the carb is not properly sized for the engine it is being used on.
There are many misconceptions about how to go about these adjustments, and of course there is no shortage of free advice. So we went to Zach Baker, a technician at QFT that spends much of his time talking customers through the correct tuning procedures, to give us his proven step-by-step carb tuning tips to get the most out of your carburetor’s performance.
Following these step-by-step tuning tips are necessary to make sure that your engine runs at peak performance. Along with these tuning tips, a check of your ignition system, as well as, the mechanical and vacuum advance curves in your distributor is suggested to eliminate any potential timing and ignition problems.
