How to Rebuild a Carburator?


Rebuilding a carburetor is like the final exam prior to graduating for car enthusiasts. Many people who are interested in cars and work on engines will rebuild carburetor at one point in their lives. However, there are many things you must remember before attempting to disassemble and rebuild a carburetor.

There are two types of carburetors being used by equipment powered by small engines. The two types are the "bowl type," and the "diaphragm type." Each type of carburetor has a different way of being rebuilt.

Rebuilding Tips

The most important step when dealing with attempting to rebuild a carburetor is to make sure that you are working in a well lit, as well as clean, working area. This is because the carburetor parts are very small and can easily be lost. When disassembling the carburetor, you will need to pay extra attention as to where each part goes, and how every part came off. You should also take note that these parts, such as the springs attached to the carburetor's linkage, can easily be damaged. Special care is needed when attempting to disassemble this product.

Prior to putting the carburetor together, you should make sure that all of the parts are clean. By using a canned aerosol carburetor spray cleaner you should be able to clean off the parts thoroughly. Use this spray cleaner to clean every part of the carburetor. However, you should be very careful when using the canned aerosol automotive carburetor spray. The contents of the can are highly flammable.

It is very important to make sure that all the parts of the carburetor are clean and free of contaminants. Do not clean the parts with a wire cleaner, due to the fact that it can misalign the calibrated parts within the carburetor.
