    450 holley carbs

     



    ok one is getting gas to the center squiter the other not.. i tryed changing the front bowl, replacing the rubber diaphragm gasket,, i checked to make sure the gaskets are on right so all holes line up. blew holes out with air. .all clear.
    this carb is on the right i have a edlebrock cross ram. rebuilt both carb. they were both doing this at first but one came out of it. after a few days i swaped the bowls just to see what would happen..on each carb..ok so now the left one is working and the right one( this was working before i swapped the bowls not it not.)..i guess the fuel pump is to small to handle both 0.3 - 0.5 mpa shouldnt it be around 7lbs

    5 psi is plenty of pressure. If the problem followed the bowl then I suggest you check the accelerator pump and does it have the check ball underneath it?

    ok so replaced the Diaphragm and spring still nothing... blew out the tiny hole(s) on the body, the metering block, and the bowl that is there the gasket is on right so all holes are open... the only thing left is the check ball inside that may be stuck. when u squeeze the lever you can't fell any air coming out of the small hole on my cheek. u should feel something i checked with the other one.sooooooo how do i change that little ball.... no info on that subject on youtube or anywhere else
