Re: Holley rebuild

If you are looking for Holley info I have 2 books I can recomend, one is called "Holley Carburetors & Manifolds" by Mike Urich & Bill Fisher and the other is also by Urich called "Holley Carburetor Handbook - Selection, Tuning and Repair. Also take a look in our "tech" reference section on the red horizontal bar at the top of the page...

Re: Holley rebuild

It's not that complicated. Take pictures and make notes.

Re: Holley rebuild

started tearing into the carb tonight, and did not get very far...how do I get the metering blocks off of the main body--the book indicates that it might be tough due to "black gaskets"...it was tough to get the bowl off--the metering blocks do not want to budge at all! I cannot get a putty knife in there, screw driver is too thick, razot too thin (snapped the blade)...

Re: Holley rebuild

Just take it to the Kitchen Sink and run Hot Water over the center section - The expansion should release the Metering Blocks.

Re: Holley rebuild

The metering block will come off with a few taps with a rubber mallet. The only thing that holds them on it the fuel bowl screws. Once you get it apart you will see there really isn't a whole lot to it.

Re: Holley rebuild

got it apart after running some hot water on it, gave it just enough to be able to get the putty knife in to pry it off the main body...

will the carb cleaner (if I submerge them, get all of that gasket off, because a wire brush is not doing much...

Re: Holley rebuild

4777-4 is disassembled, main body and base plate cleaned by hand with spray carb cleaner. Submerged the bowls and the metering blocks for about 1/2 hour to an hour...

Still cannot get the gaskets off the bowls completely--got most of it with a wire brush by hand, but I am REALLY having a h%$l of a time trying to get the gasket crap off of both sides of the metering blocks--HELP!!!

Re: Holley rebuild

The old brownish gaskets can be a real bear the get off. I have always just scraped them off, it takes some patience. Make sure you use the blue non-stick gaskets when you re-assemble.

Re: Holley rebuild

I use a spray can of carb cleaner and a brass tooth brush, the ones you get in a 3 pack (one brass, one stainless, and one nylon) at the parts store. Spray the gasket and scrape and peel the best you can then spray and brush... If you want to soak the gaskets get a small foil pan, spray into it with carb cleaner until you have it deep enough to cover the gasket surface and soak for 20-30 minutes.

Re: Holley rebuild

Just out of curiosity--what is the difference between a "normal" renew kit for a holley, and a "marine" renew kit for a holley? They appear (for all intents and purposes) to have the same components within the kit...

Re: Holley rebuild

One would think they are the same. But to be safe, get the one for the land based vehicle.
