How do you adjust a Demon carburetor?
How to Tune a Demon Carb
- Turn your car on and let it run for 10 minutes to allow the engine to reach its operating temperature.
- Adjust the four idle-mixture screws on the corners of the carb.
- Locate the three float-bowl screws.
- Adjust your carb’s butterfly positions — the two valves on either side of the carb.
What happens if your carburetor is too big?
If the barrels are too big, the loss of air velocity means the cylinder will not fill to its full capacity. An engine with a carb that is too big will put out less Torque and Horsepower. It will be difficult to drive due to poor low-end torque. If you drag race your car, an oversized carb will produce slow 60 ft.

What are the main parts of a carburetor?
Components of carburetors usually include a storage chamber for liquid fuel, a choke, an idling (or slow-running) jet, a main jet, a venturi-shaped air-flow restriction, and an accelerator pump. The quantity of fuel in the storage chamber is controlled by a valve actuated by a float.
Are Walbro carbs good?
