How to Replace the Float on a Quadrajet


The Quadrajet carburetor float needs to be adjusted or replaced occasionally for the carburetor to work effectively. The float can become gummed up or stick to the float bowl and prevent the fuel from entering the bowl properly. When this happens, the carburetor will stall out from lack of fuel. The adjustment level on the float can also slip, causing more fuel than needed to enter the chamber. You can replace the float in the Quadrajet in just a few minutes.
