Re: Strong gas smell when I stomp on it
He has a Quadrajet, not a Holley.
He would need to:
Remove air cleaner assembly.
Remove screw from secondary rod hangar and remove hangar with rods aside.
Remove choke rod from well, passenger side.
Remove several screws from the body, two inside air horn, rest about the perimeter.
Tap top plate with a rubber hammer to loosen.
Once loosen, lift straight up and unhook accelerator pump linkage and any other linkage, attachments, and etc. from air horn.
Flip plate over carefully without losing float, float pin, and needle.
With gasket in place on plate, measure, I think, from the top of the gasket to the top (now its on the bottom) of the float in the middle of its length.
If adjustment is needed, bend tab at needle.
Reinstall air horn in reverse of previous steps.
Be sure to guide the power piston and its spring in their holes, accelerator pump rod, and the secondary needle hangar into their respective places during the assembly process.
Float level is from 3/16 to 5/16 inch. The gap between the top of the float and gasket. In fact, with plate upside down, float pointing up, I believe the float and gasket are parallel to each other. You may want adjust the float further away from the gasket just a hair, a red one.
You might need to get a rebuild kit for the carb before onset. The gasket may break if it is old. Sometimes, one can separate them with gasket in tack. there is a tag attached to one of the screws and/or take the number from the side of the body, 7-digit, 70XXXXX, and give to get the correct kit.
