Projects New holley 600 carb leaking

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by iwanaflattie, May 15, 2019.

  1. Hello again.
    I have a new(bought it in 2011 ran the engine for 5 seconds then i just covered it with a dimmu borgir shirt.
    Started the coe last week and noticed the carb leaking at the base so i tightened the bolts..
    Now its been a week and the carb has been sittin leaking under the accelerator diaphram..
    Is there a trick to stop them from leaking or do i gotta replace seals/gaskets or the diaphram?

    Can i just tighten the screws?

    the trick is, don't put fuel in them, and leave them sitting for 8 years, and expect it to work right.

    Take it apart, inspect, you'll probably have to buy a kit for it, or at least a few individual parts

    In our heat, it's been sitting to long. Change the gaskets and diaphragm with new stuff.

    Maybe if you used a Darkthrone or Immortal tshirt instead you wouldnt be having these problems?

    Seems like taking the bowl off to tighten the screws holding the acceleerator pump and diaphragm in place and probably not stopping the leak is just a tiny bit less work than replacing the diaphragm amd probably fixing the leak.

    (Keeping extra carburetors handy in the living room has be proving to be worth it lately o_O )

  5. Took the diaphram out,its dry and some places dissintegrated...

    I was expecting those answers...
    I thought that the metal shirt would protect the rubber parts..
    We can fix erectile discfunction but cant make rubber that resists fuel.

    Make sure you put the green diaphram in not a cheap black one...

  7. Next time try a Slayer shirt! Hell, with a pic of dime bag for your avatar nothing less then Pantera shirt should do! From my experience, holley accelerator pumps don't last dry after being exposed to gas. That includes the green ones.

    The green ones are more resistant to shitty ethanol fuel...

    Hope you didn't over tighten the bowl screws, most carburetors are delicate.

    from what?

    rubber, fuel, etc are organic and like food, go bad just sitting there. it's like us waiting to get younger. as a loose rule of thumb, if it's soft and flexible it has a built-in limited lifetime. even outside of California.

    I would make sure the surfaces are flat where the acc pump housing bolts to the carb, rub the lower housing on a flat surface with coarse wet and dry, and file the carb surface with a wide flat file wrapped with wet and dry as well..
