Carburetors

Some car enthusiasts believe that the engine is the heart of a vehicle. Although that sounds quite poetic, in reality, the carburetor is more like the heart that breathes life into the engine. Without a properly functioning carburetor, your engine may not start at all. If it does, it may run poorly. If your 1967 Mustang isn’t always firing up or running smoothly, there could be an issue with the carburetor. You may simply need to replace a failing component, upgrade to a newer, better carburetor or make an adjustment on the one you already have. If you think you need to repair or replace your 1967 Mustang carburetor, it’s helpful to understand how they work.

1967 Carburetors

How a Carburetor Works

The carburetor is responsible for mixing fuel and air into the proper mixture and then converting it into a fuel vapor, which is sprayed into the cylinder. At this point, the vapor is ignited by spark and starts pushing the cylinders of the engine. The carburetor has a relatively simple design, but is made up of several different parts. If one part fails and you understand how it works, you may just want to replace the faulty part. However, upon closer inspection, you may want to upgrade to a modern carburetor.

The 1967 Mustang carburetor has a fuel reservoir referred to as a float-feed chamber. Fuel feeds into this reservoir and stops when it reaches a certain level, much like the water tank on a toilet. Fuel then flows from small inlets into a tube that contains a narrowed section referred to as a venturi.

On the top of this tube is the choke, which controls how much air can flow in. At the bottom of this tube is the throttle, which controls how much fuel vapor enters. The venturi creates a vacuum effect, which helps to pull fuel into the cylinders. As the throttle opens, more air flows in — creating a greater vacuum effect, thus allowing more fuel into the engine.
