If you have 25 minutes or so and a couple beers, this one is worth your time.

    25 minutes and didn't even explain the different circuits or the governor? Somewhere out there is a web site wit pictures calling out where the different circuits are in lots of common small engine carbs.

    That's a little strange.
    Isn't it?

    Why would you give up after he said mechanical engineer?

    Wow, tough crowd!
    I thought the general theory and slow mo photography was awesome.
    He did acknowledge that there is more to it in terms of circuits and governors.

    Zman, I am right there with you. Loved the video, and it made the theory behind a carburetor so clear in my head that I can almost explain it well to someone else. Hes a sharp guy who makes tough concepts easy. I like his laminar flow videos as well.

    Don't knock it too hard. You'd be amazed how many folks out there have absolutely zero idea as to how a carburetor works, or even what it's for.

    Now a nice video on tuning a Quadrajet...

    I can tune one pretty fast if you need help.
