A carburator is the component on top of an older vehicles intake. Almost no vehicles have carburators anymore and diesel vehicles never came with them. The are there to mix air/fuel (gas/petrol) inorder to power non fuel injected vehicles.
@Barry Dylan, you may now sit at the big boy table.
@Pubmarine Shamwich, Patrick Star is SpongeBobs best friend although occasionally the have petty disagreements like when SpongeBobs pet snail Gary likes Patrick more (for the cookies in his pocket)
@Barry Dylan, but can you find my long lost, moss covered, three handled family gradunza?
@Barry Dylan, dude! Every engine I got showed as a kid was diesel, now I know why I can't identify a carburetor, I never saw one lol
@Barry Dylan, that gold digging bitch
@ Mr Cuymenq, Gary's a boy.
@Barry Dylan, bitch is unisex in this context Barry ffs.
@ Mr Cuymenq, u-n-i sex? I mean if you're offering.
@Barry Dylan, you, me, the dumpster behind the wendys
@Barry Dylan, its like asking a young adult what a floppy disk is. Its doesnt mean they dont know about computers, youre just old
@Barry Dylan, The future is now, old man
@Barry Dylan, except motorcycles lots of dirtbikes have carbs still
@Barry Dylan, so what you're saying is that it's an obsolete piece of technology that is probably not essential to know now?
@ Tobias Widower, meh. The intake body looks about the same as a carb. Like a really big single bore carb, but still. Think funky looking throttle body. They can be 1, 2, 4 holes in a single carb or 6, 8, 10, 12 single carbs on top an engine. Like a "440 with a 6 pack"
@jayne cobb, Not at all. A lot of two stroke or small non vehicular engines still use them, even some planes can be seen with them, personally I prefer carburators on select vehicles. Fuel injection is just better technology. Better gas mileage, quicker power on demand and easier start ups, no choke necessary. In contrast to what "that crazy Marine" said I think it is the best introduction to engine tuning. The parts are small and you can do it on a work bench. If you like working on cars. A Toyota with a Weber or Aisin Carb is the best place to practice engine tuning. If you ask me of course.
The most headache inducing part to rebuild ever.
@that crazy Marine, then, provided you actually finished rebuilding it and didn't just say fvck it and bought a new one, you still have to tune it....regardless of which route you went
@Not him again, rebuild and tune for a lightly modified 1975 Trans-Am. I'd rather do the cam install 10 times over the complete teardown and rebuild of that damn carb. Stupid ass vacuum leak. I swear next time I'm just buying a new one. No one will know it's not an original right....?
@that crazy Marine, idk about that. ever rebuild an injection pump?
@that crazy Marine, just grind off the numbers and laser etch the original on, I'm sure nobody will notice.
Also FVCK vacuum leaks, on anything, carbed or injected
@SuperStockDiesel, I drive diesels not work on them. Just gas engines and helicopter turbines for me, thanks
@that crazy Marine, dude. why do you drive something, you can’t work on. Back to the kids table!
@SuperStockDiesel, I'm not allowed to fix this truck. Don't think my company would be happy if I tried messing with this DD16.
@that crazy Marine, 10-4 its just a regualar old commonrail though. the older unit injector styles were more complicated
@SuperStockDiesel, I used to work for a freightliner dealership, and we couldn't even get the parts to rebuild one. You basically gotta buy the whole thing now
@Not him again, yeah you’re right theres only like 100 people in the US that can do it. I was just trolling
@SuperStockDiesel, I honestly couldn't tell because while I worked there (in parts sales) I had at least a dozen people ask for rebuild parts. They'd get pissed and tell me they could get it somewhere else and I'd always be like well have at it bucko, I'll talk to you again tomorrow when you call me again to order the pump assembly
@Not him again, lol people are nuts. I live in Ohio and we probably have the most pump shops in the US but anyone is still going to have to go through them or order a reman unit.
@SuperStockDiesel, exactly. Idiots.
@that crazy Marine, Waaaay easier than a full engine rebuild or Prius transaxle rebuild or and 7+ speed transmission rebuild. Carbs are a afternoon project with the kid, not a whole day of swearing.
*que the live audience laughter*
@Pervy Sage Jiraiya, dogs table for you zoomer.
carburetors are annoying as shjt. Fuel injection for the win.
@bigpapazero20four, fuel injection systems are a total PITA. Carbs for the- oh.
So long as it's not like the 80s Toyota 20R and 22R carbs, it's probably fine. There's a kit. Some gaskets, screws and pumper diaphragm, some jets that look like screws, etc. You replace it all, clean it all, spread some Permatex high-vacuum sealant on the appropriate surfaces, slap that sucker back in, set the idle, any other settings you might need, and you're on your way.
EFI: what's the problem?
Fvck if I know. It just don't run right. Gets spark, has fuel pressure, noid light says it's supposed to be firing, new injector didn't fix it, it's fvcked.
Sure, let's just throw parts at it until it works. I have a few hundred dollars burning a hole in my pocket anyways. (A few thousand for BMW, Mercedes, Audi, etc)
Gee, so I don't get to listen to Aunt Karen complain about her husband and Dad talk about Trump for two hours? That totally sucks.
Head ass if I gotta sit at the kids table because I still enjoy cartoons from my childhood even though I'm a more responsible adult (only adult with no debt, full time job, ect) in my family then I would probably sit there anyway if I'm gonna be honest.
@dadood fromcheers, head ass?
@Not him again, head ass
@dadood fromcheers, sounds like something someone from the kids table would say. even though I still dont get what its supposed to mean
@Not him again, you dont get what head ass means? In question form it's like "are you serious" in statement form its "I'm dead ass serious"
@dadood fromcheers, I can honestly say I've never once seen or heard that said
@Not him again, I use it daily. At work, at home, out at the bar with friends
Carburetors have not been in cars for 30 years, this dad character sounds like a boomer
I’ll take electronic fuel injection thanks
