Can one of the emulsion tubes be missing from the venturi?

Sometimes those fall out.  I would simply try to find another 4G and pirate an emulsion tube from its booster cluster.  Compare the size/number/placement of holes with the remaining tube and modify as necessary.  Install new tube to same depth as old one with a light coating of Permatex Anaerobic Gasket Maker on the press-fit surface.


When I took apart my 4gc (7024121) there was no aluminum check ball in the pump intake cavity. Does it take the large one or the small one that is in my kit?


1st you have to be sure you need a check ball. Carburetors that use a check ball in the accelerator pump well will have two holes at the bottom. One for intake and the other for out flow. When there is only one hole, then no check ball is needed since the hole is the out flow and if you placed a check ball there, the flow to the main discharge would be cut off. When you have two holes, then use the smaller of the check balls and these are often made of aluminum instead of stainless steel. Aluminum is used to make the check ball lighter since only the weight of the fuel lifts the check ball off of the hole to allow fuel to enter.

  1. Hello Mike.

    Can you tell me where I can find a Carter W1 Carb Governor??. I have a 1946 Chevy 1-1/2 Ton, Flatbed Truck.
    What is the part number, What does it look like, And where can I find one??.

    Thank you for your time..

  2. I need help to identify a carter carb on a 1960 biscayne,the engine decodes back to 1958 283,it looks like a regular carter carb but has a wierd attachment on th passenger side ,a counterbalance weight and has a additional butterfly on the secondary any clues?

  3. I have a rochester 4 jet on a 1961 chevrolet with the 283, there is no tag or numbers on the carb. Having trouble with hesitation and have rebuilt twice. What is the correct accelarator pump I should be using? The one in it is 2 5/8 mlong with 5/8 cup,
