Thanks for posting this Tom.

Being a mechanic I always knew the theory of a carburetor.

But the work these guys put into demonstrating the workings of each stroke is amazing. 

Now if I only knew more about these high speed video cameras.

I have worked on and rebuilt many carbs in my life and understood the function of them, but this video was really amazing. Many thanks for posting this video.

Running carburetors with the top off or “open” is nothing new. Here is a 1935 Pierce that had an unusual problem I fixed two months ago. It was a “ professionally rebuilt“ unit that had plugged channels, dirty idle air bleeds, and a crappy modern needle and seat that was machined incorrectly causing a rich condition from fuel dumping. Notice the 1933 Snap On Stromberg float adjustment tool............I have a video of it running with the top off. It’s standard procedure on cars I sort. You can see fuel pressure and how it’s effecting float height, as modern fuel density is much different than 80 years ago.
