After installing a carburetor, it needs to be road tested to check its performance.
Testing Newly Installed Carburetor
- Start engine using Starting Procedure.
- After the engine has warmed up, perform Carburetor Idle RPM and Idle Air Mixture Adjustment.
- Test drive vehicle to verify that engine idles well, engine accelerates without hesitation, engine does not stall with quick stops, engine does not backfire, and re-verify that carburetor does not leak. It's a good idea to do test drive by driving around town, at highway speeds, and if possible on a long, slow, steep climb.
