How do I make my carburetor more lean?
The first thing to do is not set up the idle speed, but to set the Idle mixture screw to lean best idle setting. First, turn in the mixture screw until the engine dies or runs worse, then back out the screw (recommend turning ¼ to ½ turn at a time). The engine should pick up speed and begin to smooth out.
Are Demon carbs good?
The Demon 625 turned in surprisingly good numbers, with peak horsepower coming in at 526.7 at 5,700 rpm and peak torque showing 539.7 at 4,500 rpm. Our 440 was making good power, but the manifold vacuum numbers showed the 625 carb was restrictive on this large, powerful engine, with 1.7-inch Hg recorded at 6,100 rpm.
How do you adjust the floats on a Demon carb?
To prevent fuel leakage during the course of adjustments, only loosen the locking screw enough to allow rotation of the adjuster nut. Rotating the adjuster nut clockwise will lower the float level setting; conversely, rotating the adjuster nut counterclockwise will raise the float level setting.
How do I know if my carburetor is rich or lean?
Q: How Do You Tell if a Carburetor Is Rich or Lean? A: One way to tell for sure is by “reading” the spark plugs. If the plug tip is white, the mixture is lean. If it’s brown or black, it’s rich.
What is running lean or rich?
The expression running rich or lean is in reference to the amount of gas that you have in the engine. If there is too much gas, then you will be running rich, and if there isn’t enough gas, then you are running lean. Either situation can cause damage to the engine if not fixed quickly.

What do idle feed restrictors do?
This idle feed restrictor is essentially the main jet for the idle circuit. The idle air bleeds in the carburetor also affect the fuel flow, but the component that has the greatest effect on idle fuel flow is the idle feed restrictor.
