What Do You Check for In Your Live Engine Test?
Live Engine Testing is Very Crucial to Perfect Carburetor Air Fuel Ratio. Carburetors are Inspected and Checked on All Six Major Carburetor Circuits.
Idle Circuit: The Idle Circuit is inspected and checked for proper RPM Stability. Most People tend to Raise the Idle and Cause an Engine to Race and Avoid the Engine from Shutting Off, but Keeping the Engine at a Racing RPM is very Harmful to the Engine, engine oil, and spark plugs.
Main Metering Circuit: The Main Metering Circuit is Inspected and Checked for Proper Cruise Operation. Usually people tell me it runs Fine at Cruise, but Most of the Time it Runs fine due to Excess Fuel. Excess Fuel is Always very Detrimental to a Combustion Engine.
Pump Circuit: The Pump Circuit is inspected and checked for Proper Acceleration. If a carburetor falls on its face at Acceleration its Usually Due to a Faulty Pump Circuit.
Choke Circuit: The Choke Circuit is very important for Cold Start Operation. Fast idle must Raise Engine RPM to Achieve Normal Operating Temperature as Soon as Possible. If Fast Idle Does Not Release and Continues in High Idle this will cause engine to Run Rich for Long Periods of Time which is Never Good.
Power Circuit: The Power Circuit is Inspected when a Load is Placed on Engine and Maximum RPM is Achieved While Maintaining Proper Air/Fuel Ratio. The Power Circuit takes over when the Power Demand is Greatest on the Engine. Normally Lack of Power is Due to a Faulty Power Circuit.
Float Circuit: The Float Circuit is Inspected and Checked for Proper Air/Fuel Ratio. 14.7 Part Air and 1 Part Fuel. That is Perfect Combustion. That is what We Attempt to Achieve Every Time a Carburetor is Run on our Live Engines.
What Type of Shipping Carrier Do You Use?
We prefer U.S. Post Office, but We will Ship UPS if That is the Request. Normally we prefer to Ship in Large Flat Rate Boxes becuase that Gives us Enough Room to Bubble Wrap the Carburetor and Left Over Room to Add Filler Peanuts to Avoid any Type of Damage. However, if the Carburetor Tends Not to Fit into a Large Flat-Rate then Priority Mail is an option and or UPS. Depending on Where You Live We Would be More than Happy to Give you an Estimate for Shipping, but it Usually cost $20.00-$25.00 to the East Coast.
