What is the part under the carburetor?
Venturi The venturi is a narrow section that is positioned in the carburetor tube and it functions to increase the speed of the airflow.
Some carbs do not have a drain screw. They have a hose attached to bottom of carb. This has a seal in the end to stop FUEL coming out. It is only used for carb servicing/draining.
The solenoid receives a charge when you turn the ignition which activates the small electromagnet inside and completes the circuit, turning on the carburetor. This allows you to start the vehicle because the carburetor is ready to start mixing the fuel and air combination that makes the engine turn on.
What is the flap in a carburetor?
In the motorcycle world, nearly every carburetor is a sidedraft. This flap is closed manually to restrict airflow at the end of the carb away from the engine. It lets the engine “suck” against it, so fuel can come in easily, but the restriction on air makes the engine very rich, easing starting.
How do you check a carburetor?
