Spring Loaded Floats - Torsion Spring

Some of the 4 Jet carburetors had a spring mounted on the float pin and hooked to the float. This helps take the bounce out of the float on rough roads. This is a part that is not being produced so what do we do now?

It is probably OK to leave them off; I do, however, reinstall them when I find that they are present. In the Era of Ethanol, carburetors can't have enough help!
That said, I have seen many come into the shop without them which, upon research, I found to have been originally so equipped. Since I had none to install, I simply left them off an they ran as well as any 4G is ever going to run.

Can one of the emulsion tubes be missing from the venturi? Answer: 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. Question: 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.

Needle & Seat

The 4 Jet uses 2 sets of needle & seats. Some 4 jets have different size needle & seat for the primary & secondary. When this happens use the bigger needle & seat on the primary side.
