Carburetors are rather complex, and yet easily fixable devices put on engines with a purpose of blending air and fuel in a proper ratio for combustion to happen in the cylinder(s).
Before the days of fuel injection, the carburetors are what made engines work. When it comes to the Holley 4346, we are talking about a lot of fuel and oxygen fed into V8s though four-barrels.
This high-performance unit originally came in a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and Chevelle, both with the 396-cubic-inch engine. That motor produced 375 hp, partly thanks to this 780 cubic feet per minute (CFM) dual-vacuum-secondary carb.
But like all complex parts soaked in oil and baked at the high temperatures for years, carburetors need some attention as well from time to time.
Check out the video below from classic-car insurance company Hagerty to see what goes into rebuilding the carb. Awesome video. Love these time lapses.
Clearly, this rebuild isn’t Hagerty mechanic Davin Reckow’s first rodeo with this magical device.
