1940 Idle Circuit

This is the idle circuit of the Holley 1940 1 barrel carburetor.

  • Make sure all passages are open. You may have to run thin wire down them to be sure.
  • Is the idle air bleed hole open in the throat?
  • Is the hole that leads from the idle mixture screw to the bore open?
  • Check the idle mixture screw for any signs of damage. Buff the screw with a wire wheel. Any grooves on the tip? Replace it.
  • Make sure the Idle aspirator passage is open.
  • The idle air bleed does not come out and has a very small passage. Using compressed air make sure it goes through.
