Rochester Monojet Carburetor

The 1MV monojet carburetor is a single down draft unit using a triple ventuir in conjunction with the plain tube nozzle. The main venturi is 1 7/32″ in diameter and the throttle bore is 1 7/16″.
Fuel flow through the main metering system is controlled by a main well air bleed and a fixed orifice jet. A venturi velocity power enrichment system is used to provide good performance during moderate to heavy acceleration and at higher engine speeds.
An exhaust gas recirculation, E.G.R. system controls oxides of nitrogen emissions. The E.G.R. valve is operated by a vacuum signal taken from the carburetor throttle body.
A vacuum supply tube installed in the carburetor throttle body connects by a passage to timed vertical ports located in the bore of the throttle body and float bowl. The ports provide a vacuum signal to the E.G.R. valve in the off idle and part throttle operation of the carburetor.
The E.G.R. valve, mounted on the intake manifold, circulates a metered amount of exhaust gases to the combustion mixtures to lower peak combustion temperatures, thereby reducing oxides of nitrogen during these ranges of engine operation.

The E.G.R. system is not in operation during the engine idle.

A pleated internal paper fuel inlet filter is mounted in the float bowl behind the fuel inlet nut to give maximum filtration of incoming fuel.

The carburetor has an aluminum throttle body, a thick throttle body to bowl insulator gasket, and a internally balanced venting through a vent hole in the air horn which leads into the bore beneath the air cleaner. The float bowl is externally vented under extreme conditions through a pressure relief valve system.

The carburetor part number is stamped on vertical section of float bowl, next to fuel inlet.

An idle stop solenoid is used to control idle. The solenoid is electrically  controlled through the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is tunred off, the solenoid is denergized, allowing the carburetor throttle valve to close further, preventing the engine from running after the ignition switch is turned off. On manual transmission models, the  solenoid also deenergizes when the clutch is disengaged.

Mobile Responsive Web Store

Six months ago our statistics showed that only 1% of our web site users were using mobile devices to view the site. This includes devices like smart phones and ipads. At the time I decided it wasn’t enough to get excited about, but recently we noticed that number had gone up to 20%. That is a huge jump in 6 months and then a customer called me letting me know he was having problems finishing an order on his smart phone. He didn’t use a computer, but could get things done on a smart phone. That is just the opposite of how I thought things would go.

This was an eye opener for me and without hesitation, I got my development staff started on changing the site and we recently launched a new site that is responsive to mobile devices. This means the screen adjusts to whatever device is being used. A smart phone will see it one way and a desk top computer will see it another way. The old version was non responsive and displayed the screen one way, no matter what device was being used and wasn’t all that useable on a phone.

So, let the mobile devices come. We are ready.

Do you use your mobile device to use the internet? I would like to hear from you about how you use it.
