Carburetor Parts, Carburetor Rebuild Kits
The carburetor is the part of an internal combustion engine that mixes the proper amounts of fuel and air to cause the pistons to fire and run the engine. The carburetor can largely define the success of a vehicle, improving its horsepower, gas mileage, etc. It is made up of many parts which sometimes need repair or replacement. Without a properly functioning carburetor, the whole vehicle will perform below standard. It has throttles, pumps, valves, circuits, chokes, chambers, and barrels that all need to work together to get optimum performance out of the carburetor as a whole. Specialized carburetors can boost performance in a vehicle so much that they are used in sports cars to get huge horsepower and efficient gas usage. The basics of a carburetor are an open pipe that lets air in and the throttle valve rotates to increase or decrease the air flow. This determines the air fuel mixture and thus the power the engine receives.
