Familiar with Quadrajets?
« on: August 26, 2020, 09:14:07 PM »
I am rebuilding the Quadrajet on my sons 84 GMC. I did the one I had on my '72 in the late 90s so it's been a few days since I've delved too deep into one. My concern is there is no plug covering the Adjustable Part Throttle screw. My other one had an aluminum plug covering it. I was googling images and I've seen pictures of carbs WITH the plug and WITHOUT! Is the plug necessary?

Plug and hole are circled in red

Quadra what?
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I think i saw a movie about those, it was called Jurrasic Carb  :chuckle:
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

I typically set the metering rod stop screw flush with the carb body and plug the lean bleed holes . you shouldn't have to mess with the plug and the hole should be capped to keep debris out. if you can get ahold of a long .042 drill bit and drill the idle tubes they like that as well as giving the secondary syphon tubes a tap to make sure they are seated into the lid . :twocents:
My wife told me that I hunt way more than I did when we first got married. I said yeah I know isn't it great !
