See all 15 photos Here one of the step-up springs can be seen. The springs push the pistons up and manifold vacuum pulls them down. The springs determine when the metering rods change from cruise to power and back.
Why is my Edelbrock carb not getting fuel?
There can be a few things that can cause no pump shot of fuel through the accelerator pump nozzle. Be sure the float level is set to 7/16, if the float level is to low, there will not be enough fuel in the float bowls to fill the accelerator pump well. If float is to low see adjust float procedure.
How do you adjust air fuel mixture screws?
Turn the screw clockwise until the engine starts to sound rough.
- Tightening the screw weakens the air and fuel mixture and decreases the amount of fuel flowing to the engine.
- Tightening the screw is also called making the fuel mixture leaner, which lowers the RPMs at which the engine idles.
What is the difference between Edelbrock 1405 and 1406?
The 1405 is aimed more at performance and the 1406 is aimed more at economy and street manners. Yep, but a little tuning and either can be better than they come from the factory.

How do Edelbrock metering rods work?
Edelbrock responds: Fuel must pass through therestriction created by the main jet and metering rod before entering theengine. The rod extends through the jet, reducing the amount of area forfuel flow. Similar to power valves, metering rods add fuel when acertain engine load or vacuum drop is reached.
Is Edelbrock going out of business?
Edelbrock will be permanently closing its headquarters in Torrance, California, after being based in the state more than 80 years.
Will too much fuel pressure to CARB symptoms?
The symptom of too much fuel pressure is that the bowls over flow. The pressure is too high and it pushes the needle off the seat, pushing the float down into the fuel. You will see fuel over flowing from the carb coming out of the vents. The engine will stall or catch on fire if your luck runs out.
Why does my Edelbrock carb whistle?
Almost always, 100% of the time, when there’s whistling around the carburetor, it’s a leak at the carburetor base where it joins the manifold.
