Secondary carbs
Posted by: Herb ()

Hi everyone,
I spent this last week struggling to get my new Monza coupes carburetors synchronized and running the way it should be with no luck until I ran into an article written by another member about disconnecting the secondary carbs . Guess what,she stated run like a dream. I checked the timing a little I had already checked for vacuum leaks and changed all the hoses. I haven’t been able find anything on setting up the secondary carbs with the funny looking linkage with the springs. Can anyone help. I’m thinking of getting the replacement linkage from Clark’s to see if this solves my problem .

Secondaries are easy. Should start to come on at about 3/4 throttle. Should be wide open when the accelerator peddle is to the floor. Put your hands over the top of the secondaries at idle to make sure they are not leaking. Make sure the linkage isn't holding open one or both of the carbs. People, IMO, make a bigger issue about the secondaries than is needed. Provided they are clean and are not leaking, you shouldn't have any problems. smiling smiley

It doesn't leak, it's marking it's territory.

I like the 65 secondary linkage better,,but you can cut small steel tubing and slide it over the rod and ditch the springs for more positive adjustment.

When I bought mine, someone had used threaded rods. Double nutted on the push and pull side of the carb linkage for a positive on/off.
