Default Re: Rochester Carb Adjustment

I have never checked for vaccuum leaks with carb cleaner, but some people have suggested it to me. I"m allergic to fireballs!
But, If you convince someone else to spray carb cleaner(not starting fluid) with the hose.. along the outside of the carb, vaccuum lines, and intake manifold gaskests while the engine is running He Or She can report back to you if there was a momentary increase in idle speed. If so, then ask that Heroic Person at what location was He OR She spraying when the idle increased. Assuming that there is no fire and communication has not been disrupted, the location that was sprayed which increased the idle is the location of your vaccuum leak.
