What is the float bowl on a carburetor?
To ensure a ready mixture, the carburetor has a “float chamber” (or “bowl”) that contains a quantity of fuel at near-atmospheric pressure, ready for use. As fuel is used up, the float drops, opening the inlet valve and admitting fuel. As the fuel level rises, the float rises and closes the inlet valve.
How does a carburetor float valve work?
A float chamber works by allowing liquid within the chamber to lift a float which is linked to a valve which regulates the liquid intake. When the level is low, the float drops and opens the valve, allowing in liquid until the float rises sufficiently to close off the valve again.
