Looking at the fuel bowl of the Holley 4000 in the photo above, even the most novice of carburetor re-builders should be able to tell that this style of carburetor provides some "oddball" parts and procedures not common among most carburetors of the 50s and 60s. In the posts in this blog I will try to include assemblies, procedures, and tips that are relative only to this carburetor. Going forward, most of the work will be explained by using video clips but pictures of parts, assemblies and other close ups will be included in the blog posts.
Keep in mind that the videos will be kept to no more than 15 minutes in length - for reasons of upload speed, organization, and editing; but also included would be an assessment of various items as we disassemble. However, each blog post will contain a brief description of video content as well. For the first installment, we give an introduction, explain a few of the variances, and begin disassembly of the choke mechanism. The end of part 1 explains a few things about the secondary tubes. but also included would be an assessment of various items as we disassemble.
